Design by Ron Rezek, 1986.
By The Modern Fan Company.
The first truly modern ceiling fan, Stratos has no reference to the Victorian era designs which still dominate the fan industry. Among its innovations is the structural down rod which gives the fan an impression of secure attachment to the architectural space and virtually eliminates the wobble so often seen in conventional fans. The patented, single piece, die-cast rotor eliminates the problems of balance and tedious assembly required with the classic blade iron configuration.
The Stratos is all die-cast and extruded aluminum and offered in either a gloss white or a hand brushed aluminum finish. The motor is a high power silicon steel design with 16 poles. These motors are designed for long life and silent running, and are controlled by dual capacitors. Energy Star rated when used as fan only. The optional light kit may be specified with either a halogen or fluorescent light source. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version. The Stratos ships in a 17" overall height configuration. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 31° when using the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately). Select white, aluminum or maple blades with a 42" or 52" blade span.
