Caframo® Taku Hatch Fan Wins 2013 Pittman Innovation Award

500 CFM Air Blast Exchange Mode exchanges stale cabin air in minutes

The Caframo® Taku Hatch Fan is the winner of a 2013 Pittman Innovation Award. The Pittman Innovation Awards are named in honor of Freeman K. Pittman, SAIL magazine’s technical editor for 14 years, who died in 1996 from ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).


The 12-volt Taku is designed to provide both powerful ventilation to remove hot, stale air from the cabin and quiet circulation to move air throughout. A unique locking suction cup mounting system allows the fan to be installed directly on hatch glass in seconds with no hole drilling or fasteners required. The pivoting fan head can be swiveled to allow the Taku to exhaust stale air out of the cabin or to draw fresh air in through the hatch. The fan head can also be swung down into the cabin, allowing a cooling breeze to be directed wherever it is needed.
