Ceiling Kit Range
Ceiling Mount Kits (straight or angled)
Note: The standard canopy cover which allows for installation on pitched ceilings of up to 32 degrees only applies to some fans, others may be less than that.
If the pitch of the ceiling is above 32 degrees it is necessary to purchase a ceiling kit, which allows further rotation in the ball joint within the mounting bracket, allowing the ceiling fan to hang parallel to the floor. One consideration that should be taken into account is that if the fan is installed on a pitched ceiling, the distance between the tip of the blade and sloped ceiling should be approximately 30cm (1ft) to allow maximum air circulation. If this distance is reduced the airflow produced by the ceiling fan will also be proportionally reduced. To overcome this problem a down rod should be used in conjunction with the ceiling kit (see the down rod section).
Colours Available: White Birch, White, Brushed Chrome, Matt Black, Satin Brass, Polished Brass, Antique Brass
"T" Hook (Ceiling Rose Fan Mounting)
Especially during renovations and refits in federation housing the problem often arises where the owner would like to install ceiling fans but would also like to keep an existing ceiling rose. The central location of the ceiling rose within a room and the recommended location of the ceiling fan installation often coincide. Trying to install a ceiling fan onto the ceiling rose can often damage the sculpting and artwork. The T-Hook allows for only one hole to be made through the existing ceiling rose which reduces the impact on the appearance if at a later stage the ceiling fan is removed. For functionality the ceiling fan must be secured to a fixed mounting in the ceiling. The depth of the plaster in the ceiling rose does not allow for this fixation without the aid of the T-Hook. The plaster itself in the ceiling rose is not stable enough to hold the weight of the ceiling fan and so the ceiling fan cannot be attached directly into the plaster.
The T-Hook is installed through a single hole in the centre of the ceiling rose. The rod is secured to the joist or the fixed beam located in the roof above the ceiling rose. A plate on the bottom of the rod allows for the mounting bracket to be secured without damaging the existing ceiling rose. The fan can then be mounted onto this plate as per the standard installation instructions.
Universal Mounting Bracket
To make installing a ceiling fan easier Hunter Pacific has released the Universal Mounting Brace. Made from galvanised steel and designed in Australia, simplicity is the key with benefits such as firm and secure mounting without the need to cut and fit additional supporting members in the ceiling. A large mounting surface means no chance of screws missing the mark and reduced fan movement.
Additionally, a clever patented system allows the mounting bar to be offset at an angle to the rafters, solving the problems of cutting odd shaped cross-members.
Mains Power Noise Filter
In certain areas of Queensland & NSW, there are signals transmitted along the power lines which can produce audible interference through certain electrical appliances. This has been a problem to a certain extent, so Hunter Pacific has introduced a signal filter which may be included with the installation of your fan, or as a retrofit if you notice you are having this problem after your fan(s) have been installed.
