FAST Cooling-Keeping you cool!

FAST Cooling (formally known as: Fresh Air Systems Technologies) is a family owned business, a Mom and Pop shop (actually more of a Mom and Son plus Grandma and more), right here in the Midwest. We make our products in house at our manufacturing facility in Des Plaines, IL. We have 3 generations of family working here, along with other employees that we have adopted as our own (and a shop cat). We eat lunch together, have coffee breaks together and there will always be room for our loyal customers to visit. We would love to include you into our FAST Cooling family. If you find yourself in the Chicago area, let us know. We will roll out the red carpet for you!

FAST Cooling started in a garage in Arlington Heights, IL at the home of founder Chris Raffo in 1982. Chris was a Baja truck driver and was sick of eating dirt. He created a helmet that brought filtered air directly to his mouth, without allowing the dust to come in from under the helmet.

Helmet manufacturers followed his lead and the Sidewinder helmet was created. This set up the foundation for our relationships with other manufacturers of safety equipment and we have cultivated these relationships for over 33 years.

We have added many styles of blowers and filters to our product line over the years, so we have something for every venue of racing. FAST Cooling was also the first company to come out with COOL filtered air, by adding a cooler with a heat extrusion packed full of ice to drop the temperature of the air going to your helmet (keeping your head cool). We have blowers, filters and cooling for every type of racing you could imagine including drag racing, off road trucks, stock car, sports car, formula car, go-karts, legends, monster trucks, drag boats, powerboats and more! Give us a call to see what might suit your needs.
