The Modern Fan ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan is a unique fabrication of die cast and spun aluminum, shaped organically to match a wide range of interior decors. The Modern Fan Company and its founder, Ron Rezek, are renowned for creating attractive fixtures which are comfortable and energy efficient. The ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan subscribes to the Modern Fan Company’s philosophy by remaining above fashion fads with its technological and artistic superiority.
The ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan is available in brushed aluminum and gloss white finishes, with 3 matching plywood blades. The fans are available in a range of blade sizes – 36”, 42” and 52” – to suit the size of the area they would service. While the 36” and 42” blade spans are ideal for rooms of up to 100 square feet, for rooms from 100 to 400 square feet, the 52” span option is more suitable. The blade pitch of ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fans is about 12 degrees. In general, the blade pitch should not be more than 14 degrees to avoid drag on the fan motor. The provision of light with the fan is optional and there is a variety of light options which can be ordered with the ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan. The speed and functioning of the ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan can be controlled by any of 5 mechanisms, with the choice of mechanism depending on individual tastes and budgets.
For best results, the ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan should be placed 4 feet away from air conditioning vents. The basic height of the ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan is 7”, with the light adding 2.5” – 5” to the height and an optional down-rod which can add another 5” – 17” to the height. For safety purposes, the ALT Contemporary Altus Ceiling Fan should be placed at least 8-9 feet above the floor surface.
