If those are the 3 blade industrial fans that are required to be mounted 10' or higher I don't think those can be reversed. But they normally come with their own speed controller.

If that's the one you used, it clearly states single speed operation

and that one comes with a 3' cord you plug in

He wanted to buy fans. Never said anything about controlling the speed or direction. Then after they are installed. Says they should be able to control the speed and direction from the wall switch.
