  • Standard 3 ft drop requirement for most fans, requiring a ceiling height of at least 13 ft. Many models can be shortened to a 2 ft drop standard. The AVD370 can be as short as 1 ft drop standard depending upon the application.

What is the minimum height requirement for a MacroAir fan?

  • A commercial ceiling fan must have a minimum height requirement of 10 ft above the floor plus a drop length requirement of 3 feet, which means the total required height from the top of the ceiling to the floor is 13 feet. Blade tips should be at least 3 feet away from any area where a person may be able to reach them.

What is the required distance from the wall to the fan?

  • A MacroAir fan must be 1.5 times the diameter of the fan from the wall.For example, if the fan was 6 feet in diameter, multiply 6 x 1.5 = 9. That means the ceiling fan must be 9 feet from the wall.

What is the required distance between fans?

  • Depending on the diameter of the MacroAir fan, take that diameter measurement and multiply it by 3 to find the distance between fans. For example, if the diameter of the fan is 6 feet, multiply 6 x 3 = 18. That means there must be 18 feet in between fans.

Do MacroAir fans need to be close to the ground for better air movement?

  • No, fans do not need to be close to the ground. Keeping fans at a higher elevation allows for more air circulation.
