VSR - Sabre Sickle Roof Fans



The high pressure industrial sickle roof fans have been developed around a new advanced, aerodynamically shaped sickle blade, for high efficiency, maximum performance, reliability and excellent speed controllability.

All cowl and roof mounting plates are moulded from specially formulated polymeric materials, which are high impact resistant and provide a rigid profile against strong winds and are resistant to UV light. Standard Colour BS00A05.

Alternative colours available on request.

Suitable for flat or inclined roofs (max. angle 30°). Sickle Roof Fans are designed for either kerb or purlin box mounting. All sizes are fitted with inlet wire guards, giving protection to BS 848 part 5. Bird guards are available as optional accessories.

The Sabre range is available in 27 models with extract performances ranging from 0.12m³/s up to 4.12m³/s with pressure characteristics of up 150Pa.


The motors and impellers are factory matched, statically and dynamically balanced to ISO 1940, part 1Quality Class G.6.3


The external rotor motors are specifically designed and styled for this range of fan. Ball bearings are greased for life. Sizes 315 - 710 are protected to IP54, against dust and moisture complying with BS EN 60529. They have ribbed aluminium body castings for efficient cooling with Motor insulation to Class 'F' (from -40°C to + 70°C). Speed controlled sizes 450 to 710, 6 & 8 pole motors are only suitable for operating temperatures of up to 40°C.


The Sabre range is available for either single phase 220-240V 50 Hz capacitor start and run or three phase 380-415V 50Hz. Motors are fitted with Thermal Overload Protection which should be wired into all controller circuits and into starter contactors to prevent motor damage due to overloading / overheating. Units are suitable for speed control by either electronic, voltage reduction or frequency inverters where permissible.

Terminal Box

An IP54 terminal box is supplied with all models with M20 x 1.5mm gland entry offering protection against dust and water.


The fan performance, is in accordance with tests to ISO 5801.

Sound Levels

Fan sound levels, measured in a reverberant chamber in accordance with ISO 3744 Part 1. Published dB(A) figures are free field sound pressure levels at 3m with spherical propagation at a reference level of 2 x 10-5Pa (20 micro-Pascal). The sound power level spectra figures are dB with a reference level of 10-12 Watts (1 pico-watt). To ensure minimum noise levels during speed control, an auto transformer speed control is recommended.


Sabre sickle roof fans consist of two elements - a boxed cowl assembly and a plate mounted fan.
