HOW IMPORTANT IS THE CEILING HEIGHT TO INSTALL THE CEILING FAN?
The first thing to know is that, for safety, the blades of a ceiling fan should be at least 2.20 meters above the ground. The more space between the blades and the ceiling, the greater the efficiency of circulation and air distribution fan. We recommend hanging the fan to the distance from the ceiling that is visually appropriate, making sure to always keep a safe distance.In high ceilings, the best position would be the height equivalent to a third of all with reference to the ground.
In the event that the total ceiling height not exceeding 2.4 meters we recommend using our models Hugger. Note that, if a light kit is used, the total height of the fan varies depending on the model.
Blades some models, such as model Halo, are positioned in the upper part of the fan body. If this type of fan is installed with a short stem, the blades will be positioned too close to the ceiling so that the volume of air moved by the fan is reduced. For optimum performance, we recommend installing these fans with long seatposts in areas with high ceiling heights.
WHICH IS THE IDEAL DIAMETER OF BLADES FOR THE CEILING FAN?
We generally recommend using the blades ref. 52 “, 132 cm diameter. The alternative use of blades ref. 42”, 106 cm diameter. would be reserved spaces 9 m2 or less, where the air movement generated by the blades could be blocked by the various decorative elements.
HOW MUCH LIGHT BRINGS THE LIGHT KIT OF THE CEILING FAN?
The MODERN FAN EUROPE light kits, use opal crystals of the highest quality, offering a solution for decorative lighting that complements the rest of the lighting in a room. Its incidence in the general light in the area where are located depends on factors such as the size of the room, the colors of the roof and walls, use, etc.
¿WHAT CONTROL SYSTEMS RECOMMEND YOU FOR THE CEILING FAN?
To control the speed and lighting ceiling fan, you must use a control system. Unless otherwise indicated, all our controls are developed for a single fan.If you opt for a control system of other brands, it is essential make sure that the speed control is specific for this type of product.
It is not recommended as it will shorten the life of the engine, the use of dimmers or rheostats used for lighting systems. Its use will void the warranty fan motor.
Except in the “Industry” model MODERN FAN do not use chain systems to control our fans.
CAN I INSTALL THE CEILING FAN IN OUTDOOR SPACES?
When selecting the fan for outdoor use is advisable to consider some factors. Except Halo and Aurora models, our fans could be placed abroad. While it is true that, by design will not have any problem to install them in humid environments or in coastal areas, degradation of appearance can be remarkable. Despite the high quality materials are produced, can vary in appearance depending on the intensity of the environmental load where they are exposed which directly affect their longevity and appearance.Our fans brushed aluminum, have greater resistance to weathering. Although the aluminum surface degrades the environment, the material is much more resistant to oxidation, salt and other weather than other material conditions.
Finishes such as gloss white, titanium, nickel or galvanized, are not recommended for outdoor use.
Another important consideration is the blades. Over time the blades of laminated wood can be bent and open. Although the change of the blades is easy for outdoor recommend injected plastic blades used in our fans Velo, and Velo Hugger Pensi.
We do not recommend the use of remote control for external applications because the receiver is an electronic element that may deteriorate.
Our fans do not have IP legislation, nor are developed to be used in situations classified outside.
WHY OUR CEILING FANS DON'T MAKE NOISE?
Modern Fan uses the best motors available in its sector, asynchronous, free maintenance , to ensure the quiet operation and no kind of strange movement or vibration.
