I just hanged it from the ceiling, instead of bolting it. Works silently, only a whisper from the blade. Has changed our quality of life really.
I bought this for my mums conservatory. It has a large diameter span, no lights and a long drop, perfect for the pitched roof. I’m not a sparky, but the instructions were easy to follow. I did have to buy a surface mounted pattress box (48mm from screwfix i think) in order for the wall controller to fit the back box. The mounting of the fan to the beam of the roof was a little more difficult, but this was down to the configuration of the roof structure and plastic trim rather than the fan mount itself. Not sure how other people do it but i filled the void behind the plastic cover with a wooden block and drilled through and tapped the aluminium runner to mount the fan. It was a bit of messing around but has given the fan mount a solid base and it is now stable during operation no matter what blade speed is selected. I know this is bit not really a review of the fan, but it is worth knowing this before buying so that you don’t have any surprises when it comes to fitting, especially if you are going to install yourself. It’s a really good fan for a conservatory and it runs relatively quietly considering the amount of air it shifts at high speed.
Fans arrived quickly and were easily installed. They seem very efficient, having to deal with high ambient temperatures. They are supplied with a neat wall control switch, clear fitting instructions ensure a safe installation. Here are the specifications for the Westinghouse Industrial Ceiling Fan –:
- With wall control
- Summer and winter reverse switch to help keep you comfortable year-round
- Ideal for rooms up to 25 sq. m
- Four speed levels
We purchased 3 of these fans for various rooms. Even though they are ‘industrial’ they look beautiful and unobtrusive and seamlessly blend in with our period decor. They are the quietest ceiling fans we have ever owned and each of the 3 speeds is perfect. We bought the accompanying remotes and are very, very happy with this purchase.
