EASY POW'AIR and NEO Technologies: What is it?
EASY POW’AIR TECHNOLOGY : A UNIQUE CONCEPT DEVELOPED BY LEADER
The speed and shape of an air jet created by a fan affects the amount of air it carries.
Developed by LEADER engineers, the Easy Pow’air concept is based on a highly concentrated jet shape which is emitted at high speed, without turbulence.
This powerful jet increases the ambient air drive rate and effectiveness at a distance to ultimately increase the air flow passing through an opening.

THE OPERATIONAL BENEFITS FOR FIREFIGHTERS:
- Increased maneuvering space for firefighting teams:
The force and stability of the jet ensures constant and optimal efficiency from 2 to 6 m between the fan and the opening. The resulting distance gives firefighting teams space to move about at the entrance. The fans can also be positioned from 0.90 metres. The noise level is reduced for firefighters due to the greater distance.
- Easier ventilation from front steps:
The option to move the device further away plus maximum tilt allows ventilation in specific situations: Doors and windows up high, front steps, landings. With or without the optional stand, the Easy Pow’air Technology can also be used to tilt the fan to -10° for downwards ventilation: Very practical when fighting fires underground.
- Simple and quick to set up:
To reduce the time to set up a fan on site, ergonomics and ease of positioning have also been taken into account. Easy Pow’air Technology allows the fan to automatically tilt to +10°. When raised, the handle automatically positions the fan at its optimum angle. Fine angle adjustment between +10° and +20° is also possible.
NEO TECHNOLOGY: AN OVAL-SHAPED JET FOR EVEN MORE EFFICIENT LEADER FANS
- NEO: The culmination of the Easy Pow’air concept: An optimum combination of GRILL - PROPELLER - SHROUD.
NEO generates a concentrated jet of air like Easy Pow’air, but it is unusual in that it has a vertical oval shape. This shape stretched lengthways minimises losses on either side of the door, and optimises the amount of air entering the door.
- GRILL - PROPELLER - SHROUD:
The complementarity of these three components (their technical nature and air flow design) help
considerably increase the performance of 400 mm (16'') diameter petrol-driven, electric or hydraulic fans in the LEADER range.
- Up to 20% additional flow for unrivalled power in their
This new performance, accredited by external organisations, allows the use of smaller and lighter fans during operations which previously required larger fans from other categories.
