Contractors compete to install a Broan Ultra ventilation fan.

Hartford, Wis.-based Broan-NuTone has kicked off a nationwide tour that gives contractors hands-on experience with the Ultra bath ventilation fan and a chance to attend the 2014 International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.

Ultra is a bath ventilation product that the company said installs up to 60% faster in retrofits and up to 20% faster in new construction than comparable fans. During the 60-stop tour, contractors compete to install one of the fans in the quickest time, while earning  ULTRA Pro contractor status.

The fastest contractor at each location will receive a $500 Cabela’s gift certificate, and at the conclusion of the tour, the eight contractors with the quickest times among the location winners will each win a trip for two to IBS. “The eight contractors will then compete at the show for a 2014 Ford F150 grand prize,” the company said.

“ULTRA Fans feature the fastest, easiest, most universal installation to save contractors time,” said Richard Palmersheim, group vice president of marketing, at Broan. “There’s no better way to convince contractors of the benefits of this product than to let them install the fans themselves.”

The tour will conclude on November 19, 2013, in Indio, Calif.
