Best brands for exhaust fans?

Hello, i was wondering which brands for exhaust fans are considered the best? There are so many brands, it's hard to choose. Please suggest me some fans that you trust from experience.

To be more specific, i'm looking for a reliable quality fan that i can use 24/7 and never turning it off during the whole grow, without ever worrying about malfunctions and fire hazards.
Also noise is a factor, it needs to be quiet, but still powerful enough to pull a lot of air.
Don't need humidity and temp sensors, only a speed controller is enough (but anything extra is a bonus)
It needs to have an overheating protection so it turns off automatically if the motor gets too hot. And it has to be waterproof.
It also has to be plug & play, no wiring needed.

So i'm looking for the cream of the crop of fans, the best of the best and pure quality. Preferably made in EU.
Thanks in advance!

I couldn't be happier with my AC Infinity Cloudline s4, I cant imagine a fan could get any quieter and the build quality is excellent. You can also upgrade from the built in speed controller to a "smart" controller 67 with Bluetooth, data logging and all kinds of automation. You can get better fans, but they're all way more expensive. 

 

Our sponsor ledgrowlights.co.uk sell them and offer a discount to members, the only issue is they're stock can be a bit sporadic.

I doubt they're waterproof @MindSouplol

 

If anyone knows of a waterproof duct fan I'd love to hear about it.

 

edit-If you want very reliable fans look at rvk or ruck, they're the only ones that have been around for decades and they last that long too (i know that hard to believe). If you want ec fans then you're going to pay good money for something not made in China. The people who make the rvk make some fans called the K series (ec range), that's what I would buy if I was in the market at the mo.....£££££ though :ouch:

If you go rvk then you'd have to spend a good amount of money on a controller, the cheap ones are shit and make the fans buzz like mad.

Thanks @KC I don't seem to be able to read today lol

 

E2A you could easily make a fan waterproof if you mounted it inside a box (maybe a pelicase) with 2 holes drilled into it, silicone up all the gaps.

If it’s reliability your after ? You can’t go wrong with rvk as KC says (gas or system air I think) mine was running for 7 years nearly none stop in the last grow, I run mine with a fan speed controller at lower speeds and it’s quiet enough.

Thats like 2000m3 right? What's the general noise from fan itself when you tune it down?Guess I could run it on 1/3 of speed to avoid that woosh at outake but still concerned how much fan itself is loud

I had Tornado 20cm and gave it away because it's to loud

Do they make TC models?

I haven't got one so I only know anecdotal shit

mines a phresh hyperfan v2 silenced 150mm, I wouldn't call it 'silent'. on 65% power there is a background movement of air noise. the oscillating fas in the tent for air circulation are noisier than the phresh.

the systemair are supposed to be a step-up from mine in terms of quietness, aoparently. on half-power, you would still hear it but it wouldn't cause any noise issues for you.
