Torsion Ceiling Fan by The Modern Fan Company
Torsion® Ceiling Fan
The Modern Fan Torsion Ceiling Fan with Optional Light was designed by Ron Rezek as the epitome of The Modern Fan Company's stylish approach to ceiling fan designs. The Torsion Fan is exactly what a good ceiling fan should be: displaying an attractive transitional-modern design, this ceiling fan's blades split as they join its body, almost as if they're huge wrenches twisting on the head of an enormous bolt.. The Torsion Fan has one of the most powerful motors which efficiently moves over 6247 cubic feet per minute while consuming only 75 watts at high speed (52" blade model). The Torsion ceiling fan by The Modern Fan Co. is easy to install, looks beautiful and works like a charm. Plus, it is very silent compared to other fans. Available with 5 blade finishes and with optional light kit. Includes 5" and 17" downrods, yielding 12" or 24" overall height. 14 degree blade pitch. UL Listed for damp locations.
The Torsion ceiling fan efficiently moves plenty of air so you'll keep air moving, feel cooler, and there will be less need to run the air conditioning continuously. This beautiful modern ceiling fan cools in the spring and summer and moves stagnant air during heating season in fall and winter. Torsion features a simple, vertical orientation particularly appropriate for lofts, stores and other high-ceiling applications. The Torsion Ceiling Fan features an aluminum body with 42", 52", or 62" plywood blades, available in a variety of finish options. Torsion combines modern aesthetics to create a functional design with optional light kits and controls. Available with halogen or compact fluorescent light kits. The 250 and 252 halogen light kits add 5" to the overall length. The 251 and 253 compact fluorescent light its add 5" to the overall length. The 270 halogen light kit adds 2.5" to the overall length.
Selecting the right fan, what you need to know:
The more space between the blades and the ceiling, the more effectively your fan will circulate and distribute air. However, building codes require that the blades of a ceiling fan must be at least 7-feet above the floor. Generally, we recommend hanging the fan as far down from the ceiling as is visually appropriate, while maintaining the 7-foot blade clearance above the floor. When dealing with higher ceilings, one-third the distance to the floor is a good guideline. We generally recommend one of our hugger models for 8-foot ceilings. Keep in mind that optional light kits may add several inches to the overall length of the fan.
In nearly all cases, our 52-inch to 62-inch blade spans are the most appropriate selections. The 42-inch blade spans should be reserved for smaller rooms or narrow spaces (10-foot-by-10-foot and smaller) or when airflow to the area above the blades is blocked or restricted by architectural elements (beams, walls, cabinetry, etc.). Occasionally, two 42-inch fans may be a desirable alternative to one 52-inch fan.
The Modern Fan Co ceiling fans do not use conventional pull chains which is a nice minimal design feature. When ordering your fan, you should select the control that is most appropriate for your fan and electrical requirements. All controls are designed for use with one fan only.
Assembly and installation is required. Power supply must be turned off prior to any contact with electrical wires. As with any electrical product, it is recommended that a licensed electrician be hired to install your ceiling fan.
