  • Aluminium - Corrosion resistant and aerodynamically shaped, providing highly effective cooling.
  • Wood - Marine ply and weather resistant ensures no swelling, sagging or distortion. Designed for optimal air delivery but less effective than the aluminium blade.
  • Delivery and Fan Speed - Vary greatly depending on the number of blades, blade sweep and blade material. Wood blades will spin slower than aluminium blades.

    Blades A (mm)
    BA90 900
    BA120 1 200
    BA140 1 400
  • Blade sets - Number of blades vary for each motor model. More blades does not necessarily mean more air delivery but can be more aesthetically pleasing than a three
    blade fan.
  • Blade sweep - The overall diameter from blade tip to blade tip.
  • Blade sweep selection - use the following table.
    For Rooms Up To Blade Sweep
    9 sq metres (3m x 3m) 900 mm
    16 sq metres (4m x 4m) 1200 mm
    25 sq metres (5m x 5m) 1400 mm
  • Safety - Take into account that the blades need to be clear of open cupboard doors, not be within reach of bunk beds and not cross over any lighting as it may cause a flickering effect.
  • Aesthically pleasing - White in colour. Flush or wall mounted.

Downrod Dimensions

  • Standard 230mm downrod, shackle assembly and hanging u hook are supplied with each fan.
  • Shorter downrods can be used on certain models, however the fan will be prone to wobbling and less effective air delivery.
  • Longer downrods - Standard longer lengths are 450mm and 900mm.
  • Customised length downrods are available up to 6 metres.
  • No wobble or movement is experienced when using long downrods.

Downrod Length Calculation

  • Minimum height regulation - For safety reasons fan blades should not be lower than 2300mm above floor level.
  • Maximum height installation - No restrictions, however fans mounted too high will affect the cooling efficiency.
  • Formula for calculating customised down rod length:
    Floor to ceiling height minus 2300mm
    (min blade height regulation from floor)
    minus 110mm (motor Measurement) minus 60mm (hanging shackle)
equals downrod length

If you require the fan to be higher than 2300mm above the floor substitute the 2300mm in the formula with the desired height:
Floor to ceiling height minus 3000mm
(desired height from floor)
minus 110mm minus 60mm equals downrod length
D = X - (2300mm + 110mm + 60mm)

Calculating Downrod Length

Downrod installation on an angled/vaulted ceiling

  • Install a wedge that provides a horizontal surface for attaching the down rod.
  • Downrod must be long enough to prevent the blades from hitting the sloped ceiling.

Angled or vaulted ceiling

  • No need to replace the complete fan, components can be purchased separately.
  • Spare parts for all components are readily available.
