The only fan manufacturer with an intertek certified satellite lab on site
We’re the only ceiling fan manufacturer with these facilities in the country. Intertek is a global independent safety science company, and achieving this certification is just one example of our dedication to quality and performance.
Sharing lab resources with our sister brand, Hunter—the company that invented the ceiling fan well over a century ago—together we’ve been instrumental in creating some of the very tests that have become industry standards. We’re the ones who came up with the CFM test method, for example—the rating that measures cubic-feet-per-minute airflow, which all fan manufacturers are now required to provide.
Going above and beyond
At our dedicated onsite lab, our technicians perform rigorous testing—meeting all the required testing, of course, but also putting our fans through additional testing that isn’t required. Visit our test lab on any given day, and you’ll see us having some (serious) fun with temperature, airflow, noise and more, with tests that include the following:
- UV exposure
- Salt spray
- Blade droop and warp
- Blade iron shake
- Light output intensity
Plus, our blades and blade irons are all perfectly weighted and matched to eliminate wobble. Ultimately, in-house testing delivers immediate results and feedback to our engineers and designers, which in turn allows us to collaborate, improve and innovate with incredible agility.
