Each fan is supplied with a complete set of five blades made of medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and a balancing kit. The fan units are finished with a white, brushed chrome or new bronze lacquer and are accompanied by blades in an appropriate colour: The white fan includes a set of five white blades. The other two darker colour options include reversible blades with a Brazilian Cherry and Yellow Walnut finish. The blades can be mounted with either side facing downwards. The blade finishes are an imitation of the natural wood grain.

Ceiling fan running direction, counterclockwise, clockwise
The Builder ceiling fans rotate anti-clockwise in the summer when temperatures are high. During this mode the blades push air from the ceiling down to the ground and create a cooling effect (see left image). Once temperatures begin to drop, simply flick the reversing switch on the outside of the motor housing. Now the fan operates in winter mode, air from the ground is sucked upwards to the ceiling (image on the right). Hot air on the ceiling is recirculated and brought back into the room. This results in a more balanced temperature in the room since cold spots on the floor are eliminated.
Save heating costs by setting your Builder ceiling fan to winter mode.
Two pull chains allow you to control the fan on three speeds with a maximum of 153 revolutions per minute as well as the lighting feature. If required, an optional remote control or wall controller (with and without light switch) from our shop’s accessory selection can be added. The light and fan units can be operated independently.
Ceiling fan pull cord
The Hunter Builder ceiling fan range has been perfectly balanced in the factory by the manufacturer. This excludes any possibility of noise and imbalance due to vibration or wear of single parts. Installation of the fans is recommended in rooms with at least 2.60m ceiling height. This rules out possible accidents of bumping into the fans. A minimum distance of 70cm should be kept to solid objects such as walls or heavy furniture. It is possible to fit the fans onto sloping ceilings with a maximum pitch of 22 degrees. If required, you will find a variety of fitting extension drop rods in our shop.
Use a soft brush or lint-free cloth to clean the Builder fans. Check the detailed manual for more information about removing stains and polishing the unit.
