Modern Fan's Altus ceiling fan exhibits attractive organic lines, leading to a sophisticated three-blade fan design. The simple yet effective configuration of gradual forms produces a simple structure that lends itself to any contemporary interior. The beautiful Altus ceiling fan was designed by designer Ron Rezek for The Modern Fan Co. Altus is modern, subtle, yet extremely powerful. Ceiling fan airflow and efficiency are often overlooked, but the amount of air your fan moves each minute impacts the level of performance. The Altus Fan has one of the most powerful motors which efficiently moves over 6422 cubic feet per minute which is plenty for most spaces. The Altus 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 two blade finishes (aluminum or white) and with optional light kit. The Altus ceiling fan by the Modern Fan Co is available from Stardust with Free Shipping and a Low Price Guarantee. Need a ceiling fan for tall or vaulted ceilings? We offer additional downrod extensions and an adapter for vaulted/sloped ceilings.
The Altus 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. The Altus fan features a simple, vertical orientation particularly appropriate for lofts, stores and other high-ceiling applications. The fan (only) is Energy Star certified, made of all die-cast aluminum and offered in a hand brushed aluminum or gloss white finish. The plywood laminate blades have a 14° pitch and are available in a white or aluminum finish with a 42" or 52" blade span.
Includes 4.5" and 16" down rods for 11.7" or 23.2" overall height. Optional down rods are available for alternate heights. The Altus fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately).
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 50-inch to 56-inch blade spans are the most appropriate selections. The 42-inch or 46-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. Our Altus and Cirrus models are also available with a 36-inch blade span for exceptionally small or narrow spaces.
The Modern Fan Co ceiling fans do not use conventional pull chains which is a nice minimal design feature (with the exception of the Industry model). When ordering your fan, you should select the control that is most appropriate for your fan and electrical requirements. All controls (except the #009A and #009B) 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.
