Swan SFA12620BLN, Like a hurricane !

I bought two of these supporters on sunday afternoon, shipped and up and running by lunchtime the following day. Straightforward to assemble, no screwdriver essential and very strong. All round look is pretty retro and so a great deal nicer wanting than the bathroom conventional white plastic ones. This fan will not likely be packed away immediately after the heatwave has gone, its significantly to interesting. Let down nevertheless that these types of an iconic british brand name is now designed in china, but there you go.

Its not significant or strong but you know that. It doesnot rotate, so you have to have to move it.

Easy, i really like retro, arrived immediately.

Comments from buyers

“Decent fan. Helped us during the heatwave, Poweful little fan, Cooling but rubbish instructions / poor design”

Allow me support you get it put jointly. . Initial, this is for the 16inch stand fan. I have no notion what the smaller types are like, which are integrated in this listing. Next, i have never created out directions just before, so i’m not promising to be specifically useful, but they have *obtained* to be greater than what is provided. Following you unpack it all and have checked that every thing is there, you may perhaps be pondering about the screws. Most of them are truly in put by now, which is helpful, but glance out for the tiny screw and nut which are supposed to be included for the grill. I located the nut, but no screw. It was loose in the base of a person of the major baggage encompassing the grill and blades. You’ll want a relatively very long phillips screwdriver.

Just a heads up, this will be a minor lengthy with shots as well. When the fan first arrived i was a bit concerned as the packaging was harmed, all up the front the box was ripped and at the prime it was 50 % undone. On opening i discovered all the things was pretty effectively packaged, it had styrofoam and cardboard spacers to continue to keep all the things from touching and the solution was unharmed. The upcoming photograph is of all of the items (not alot) so it was crystal clear that it would be quick to place with each other. I seen a very little rust and a several scratches on the back deal with, but it wouldn’t effect the fan in anywa and is just not visible when every thing is put alongside one another. There are supports to keep the mesh handles so they you should not rattle, so it really is not consistently building a loud noiseit’ genuinely effortless to put collectively (took me about 2mins with no intsructions, i swiftly read by at the close to see that i’d i accomplished every little thing thoroughly aswell) and it extends based on how tall you want it. General excellent fan, nothing at all undesirable to say about it, i can only believe the damaged packaging is just not a fault of the firm that sells the fan but the shipping and delivery (even then it didn’t make a variation to the fan).

Read kev mooney’s overview which is the fairest and most instructive. I could not strengthen on it except to say that it would have saved me some time if the assembly guidance had been less difficult to understand in the guide. But my tolerance was amply rewarded as i now have a gorgeous and potent fan.

Seems terrific, charming retro information. Mine experienced a scratch on the base, but acquiring arrived all through a heatwave i decided to are living with it somewhat than hold out in the heat for a new 1. The fan is self assembly, and needs a good deal of putting collectively. The motor sounds isn’t really far too terrible, but the fan is loud even on the initially setting.

I was drawn by the style and design in the to start with instance. The eco-friendly colour is spectacular. I really don’t discover the fan noisy because i like a qualifications white sound, just be knowledgeable it does make a substantial fanning audio and is not silent. My only concern it that the grille is mounted and will be fascinated to see how effortless it is to keep the fan blades totally free from dust. Bravo amazon a excellent locate at a fair price tag.

I have been working with this for about three months. Originally i was a small unhappy at the amount of plastic on this fan (because i was anticipating it to all be steel following hunting at the concerns and answers on this merchandise. ), but, having made use of it for a very good couple weeks and inspecting it to see climate i required to improve, i assume i can properly say it is a very perfectly built efficient fan and i am surely heading to keep it. Though is just not produced of as a great deal steel as i would have originally preferred, the plastic is it manufactured from is quite thick and good high quality. None of it feels weak or cheap in any way, it all feels heavy, strong and well made. It seems to be great as very well with the classic styling, it is not an eyesore like those affordable generic white plastic enthusiasts you see. It will come with a two calendar year manufacturer guarantee and you can convey to it is built to a extremely superior normal so i am not fearful about it burning out any time before long. Just to explain, the base, cage and blades are metallic, the rest is all plastic. Will not be set off even though simply because it is very good good quality. The ideal factor about this fan even though is it is overall performance.

Just one you have it up and jogging its a grand fan and trendy much too. Guidelines lousy, so when i set this collectively it would not operate – 10 minutes head scratching and realised the rubber spindle deal with is far too prolonged – at the time the fan is mounted rubber sleeve pushes back again into the motor and stops rotating. Nowhere do the recommendations advise you may possibly require to trim this by a 1cm or 2. May possibly be a manufacturing glitch on my individual fan but counsel test yours rotates freely when fan mounted before finishing putting collectively. But for this would have given 5 stars.

It looks terrific in my home and will work pretty nicely way too .

Not the most potent fan but fantastic for the canine which is why i needed it.

Very good fan pace with an additional advantage of oscillation to deal with the surprise british summer. The up / down angle lock isn’t the most convincing of products but does keep for a handful of days ahead of needing to modify. Reasonably obscure instructions but you will get the occupation finished rather rapidly.

The fan is brilliant and before long cools the place have been making use of it day and night time the only issue i have is that its a very little as well noisy for use in the bed room hence the 4 stars.

Terrific on the lookout fan, retro design which compliments my scandi style lounge. Was tremendous uncomplicated to assemble, nonetheless it is not light, it is rather a weighty fan it’s not extremely noisy, although it is not as quiet as i would have preferred (i am fussy nevertheless) but in general it was a great purchase and we’re pleased with it. It certainly assisted reduce the heat in our lounge through the heatwave. And it seems to be good unlike other hideous industrial seeking admirers.

I’ve preferred a fan for a even though and when we had the weeks of charming sizzling weather conditions i realized i wanted something that seemed great, and was built very well in addition to he efficiency. It a attractive fan, not far too noisy and fantastically fashionable with the retro edge.

A solidly built piece of machines.

Like a lot of the latest reviewers, the heatwave of summer season ’18 has induced numerous to get any fan they could get their fingers on. At the time of ordering there weren’t a good deal of admirers in inventory but this a person appeared like a fair fan. To begin with i imagine it truly is a pretty pleasant wanting fan. I went for the bland black colour but the extra colourful solutions looked fantastic. I did not find assembling far too tough, whilst they diagram isn’t really good, but seeking at the photo of the fan on the box offered plenty of further detail. I presently have a dyson fan as a place of comparison. The swan noisier but not so lousy that it kept me awake (i’m a mild sleeper far too). It has three configurations, and it is really least expensive is essentially really strong, and to get the equal air flow from the dyson it also begins earning a fair bit of noise. I do desire it experienced some extra configurations: one particular or two a little bit slower speeds so that if the fan is close by it can be not too mind-boggling.

A small nosier than i would have liked (i uncovered a 10 finest admirers short article on the internet and this was cited as the very best in this value variety). Quite effective – i not often have it over 1 due to the fact that is sufficient. Really valuable throughout this on heading heatwave – my dogs like to lie in entrance of it much too. It appears to be excellent and was easy to set collectively – only 4 / five since its a bit as well loud to snooze soundly by way of.

Super impressive fan but it is incredibly noisy by my normal – wished there was a pace a lot less than one to move the air but with fewer electric power and less sound.

Cute as it may possibly seem to be, this very little retro fan delivers as promised. Lived my overall everyday living in heat international locations and transferring to london exactly where flats typically never have acs was a problem. Excellent resolution if you want a silent, transportable fan that will get adequate power to awesome you down but loud ample not to change your snooze. The sizing tends to make it fantastic to disguise throughout winter season. Soon after six weeks of applying it, keeps working wit as expected.

Seriously great fan, seems to be much nicer than your regular desk fan. My only two gripes are the plastic casing on the motor section – was hoping that it was all powder coated metallic, as an alternative it is much more like the plastic kitchenware my gran utilized to have. The other concern is the pace, whilst i like a effective fan on a incredibly hot working day, the a few configurations: ‘spitfire engine’, ‘wind tunnel’ and ‘end of days’ lead to each and every piece of paper in my office to scatter, would be wonderful to be capable to flip it down a couple of notches.

Very well produced, fantastic air flow, not way too loud, cools you down.

    Great quality fan but a nightmare to assemble (it comes in bits). I had to get someone else to put it together. An hour & half later it was done (2 pieces were missing). Works well, has speed choices, is quite heavy for a little fan, too noisy for me to sleep with (im a light sleeper though), no remote control & once assembled it won’t fit back in box for storage after use.

        Not particularly easy to assemble especially because the motor was very heavy/unwieldy. There’s a good chance i got a faulty item because i had a niggling feeling the box had already been opened (styrofoam was broken and packaging was shoddy). It’s possible i got a lemon.

It certainly helped alleviate the heat in our lounge during the heatwave. And it looks nice unlike other ugly industrial looking fans.

    This is a very nice looking retro fan. It does the job but is quite noisy considering the price. We have really cheap plastic ones at work which are much quieter. If you plan to use it in your bedroom at night, you might want to look elsewhere.

    With the summer we’ve had, these were amazing. I bought the 12 inch desk fan in cream and the taller bigger one in blue. I love the colours and the retro look, but aside from that they are so powerful. We normally only use setting 1 or 2 at most. With the 3rd one it can feel a bit like a hurricane. The little one keeps our whole living room cool and isn’t too noisy so we can still watch films. The large one we leave on oscillate before bed and the room is like a fridge. It’s like we have air conditioning. I’m a light sleeper but the noise level is fine for me.

    Adorable as it may seem, this little retro fan delivers as promised. Lived my entire life in warm countries and moving to london where apartments usually don’t have acs was a challenge. Great solution if you want a silent, portable fan that gets enough power to cool you down but loud enough not to alter your sleep. The size makes it perfect to hide during winter. After 6 weeks of using it, keeps working wit as expected.
