Optional downrods for Modern Fan ceiling fans.

Ron Rezek

Ron Rezek designed the world's first contemporary-styled ceiling fan, the Stratos, in 1986. But his list of accomplishments in the design world is long and varied, from lifeguard equipment to contemporary lighting. In 1997, Ron started The Modern Fan Co. in Ashland, Oregon, which produces and sells only contemporary ceiling fans.

His ceiling fans have been widely used in hotels, restaurants, retail and institutional applications, and all types of residential projects.

Ron Rezek's Philosophy:
"I don't think contemporary means a stark white room. I think it means a tasteful alignment of important elements. There are some designers who copy the Modernists who have come before. But I think 'contemporary' is the pursuit of the new." "People assume that all contemporary fixtures are more functional than traditional ones. That is because contemporary fixtures are easier to clean and they seem to be more utilitarian based on their appearance. And because of their simplicity and lack of ornamentation, they also have an alliance with the industrial look. But all of this doesn't necessarily translate into function. The Modern Fan Co.'s fans are designed to be functional and energy efficient. This is part of being contemporary and pushing the edge. Energy efficiency is the wave of the future."

Hey, it's a downrod.

Not much to say. It's a downrod. It lowers the fan in my vaulted ceiling. Works nicely.

A perfect blend of form and function.

we desperately needed a fan to circulate warm air in this lodge-type setting, but were dead set against the bulk of many fans..the sleek, satin aluminum cylindrical body of the fan complements the 3 cirrus sconces we used to uplight the cathedral area,..the fan functions so quietly and is almost perfectly balanced even on the six-foot downrod. the installer reported it to be a beautiful quality piece and very well designed and built. the packaging, instructions, feel..all first-rate.
great work, modern fan!

Great fan, great price

It's a gorgeous fan that moves a lot of air, and does so quietly. Well-worth it and Energy Star too!

Great product

Accessory downrod was great--but I ordered the wrong length. My fault :-(

Works well.

This 6' downrod is used with the Flute Ceiling fan, and works like a charm. There is no movement from the fan at all even when it is on high.

looks perfect

The high vaulted ceiling is not an issue with the matching downrod. Everything went together easily and looks wonderful.

Lapa Ceiling Fan Extension Rod

This extension rod for Lapa Ceiling Fan is very easy to install and it gives Lapa Ceiling Fan a little kind of a cool industrial look on top of the modern looking. Very nice.

Having the right size downrod makes a huge difference!

I'm so glad that we were able to get longer downrods for the ceiling fan we ordered. If the fan is too high, it doesn't circulate the air in the room correctly. We have a loft, so our ceilings are taller than normal.

Functional and what we needed...

With vaulted ceilings, we had to have the extension.

We have very high ceilings, and using the downrod to extend the fan, really worked well.

The brushed nickle look really fits with our modern style.

Nice addition

It was very easy to add this downrod, and to install the fans. Awesome fans

Love, love the Modern Fan Co.

This is another great product. When we built our house two years ago we put in all lModern Fan Co fans except for one in the screened porch, a regret. Our Modern Fan fans not only look great (everyone who visits says) but they actually work to cool the room.

This industrial themed one is for a shed out in back... Perfect!

We'll go to any lengths...

... as long as they're the ones we carry. I'm subtracting one star because it would be great if YLighting would cut the optional downrod to-order, instead of making me do it. I'd gladly pay extra for that service. Chances are great that I'll drill the new holes at an angle.

It arrived via UPS but UPS was too lazy to deliver the items and forced me to go to their office near the airport to pick them up.

I haven't opened up the box yet but the rods seem like they will be the right length. I wish they were sent via FedEx who at least makes a better attempt to deliver the products.

The extension rod was much needed in our 18' cathedral ceiling.

This product is great

We have purchased 5 fans for several homes, and the optional downrod allows us to choose the length and gives maximum flexibility. The rods always remain straight, not moving with the velocity of the fan.

solved my problem

I have not actually installed this product yet, but I was thrilled to have the optional length rod. I do wish it was not an "option" thus costing me even more money, but it solved my problem of the shorter rod being too short and the longer rod being too long.

great fan - fast service and shipping

Ylighitng had the most competitive price, had the products available and shipped them in a very timely manner. I haven't installed the fans yet but I've used their products before and think they are a very good value for the price and have a nice clean design.

It Works

As advertised, it lets the fan hang lower. Pretty straightforward.

Slow...even on high

Seems to rotate slowly even on high. Contacted maker who provided RPMs, but no idea how measure. Also purchased a Ball Fan which I would recommend over this one. Finish is not particularly attractive - thought it would be stainless steel, but more painted grey than actual steel.

By:Stratis , Homeowner (Washington DC)

Clean and Modern

I purchased an additional downrod to extend the drop for my ceiling fan. Overall, I am very pleased - the downrod came with additional lengths of wire that I spliced to the existing wires to make connection to the ceiing power easier. The finish matched the ceiling fan. Install was very easy.

Quietly elegant

Ceiling fans tend to fall in the ''Incredibly ugly'' category when it comes to designing a room,not the 'Modern Fan',love it's sleek and minimal presence.

Downrod added just the right length

We have 14' ceilings, and the 48" downrod puts the fan at just the right height.

Style & Practicality

A downrod for a tall ceiling. For a 45 deg. ceiling need to get the special hub which is also available through YLighting.

It helps to make the air closer to my desk

The ceilings in my house are so high. The downrod helps to make the air circulate throughout the office better.

Great Fan, perfect fit

Everything worked out extremely well. Love the Fan, not too expensive, fit well, quiet and performs all the functions one could need. I highly recommend it.

Original fan down rods sent receive a ZERO rating as they came bent and had to be replaced. They could have been packaged much better before they were sent. Really, the down rods just came in a long box with a bit of styrofoam wrap around them and that

Original fan down rods sent receive a ZERO rating as they came bent and had to be replaced. They could have been packaged much better before they were sent. Really, the down rods just came in a long box with a bit of styrofoam wrap around them, and that was it. Likelihood the product would be damaged in transit is very high when packaged in this manner.

Original downrods get an F, not because they are not a good product, but because no care was applied in shipping them to the customer.

If you need it...

So glad we went with the down rod for our Lapa fan. It was suggested we get the 24" down-rod for our 12' ceiling. It's a perfect length and the fan/down rod look beautiful. If you need it, really, don't hesitate.

A must for this fan.

I highly recommend this industrial looking ceiling fan and the additional drop bar is a perfect match.

Easy install, great looks.

We bought this extension along with the Lapa ceiling fan. Downrod arrived in perfect condition and perfectly matches the fan itself. Removing the factory downrod and installing the longer version is a snap. Great product!

Works well, but quality could be better.

The manufacturing quality of the extension rod is not as good as the fan.

Great instructions on which downrod to buy.

I have a high sloped ceiling & the instructions made it easy to figure out if I could buy the fan & the downrod length.

Works as described

Works exactly as described. We have 14' ceilings and needed to bring the fan down low enough to benefit from the air movement.
