Staff is researching the feasibility of installing a solar or electrically powered box fan in the three existing and nine Kaleidoscope shelters to be furnished and installed by Broward County. The Kaleidoscope manufacturer, Landscape forms, has offered the assistance of their engineer to design a fan that can be retrofitted onto the shelter. A prototype would be proposed for the existing Kaleidoscope shelter located on the NE corner of Sample and Coral Hills Drive. Since this bus shelter accessory does not currently exist as an option from the manufacturer, there would be a design and custom fabrication period followed by installation and monitoring of performance. If the fan proved reliable and effective after a 3 to 6 month test period, then it could be expanded to the remaining 11 Kaleidoscope shelters in the inventory. Staff has estimated that 60 of the green Tolar shelters have reached the end of their useful life, showing signs of rust, and have proposed replacing them with the Kaleidoscope model in future years.

Waiting on vendor to deliver the equipment. Shipping delays due to Covid-19.
