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

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!

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

Great Accesories for the Ceiling Fan, adds great design and they all are great products !!!

Quality, delivered on time, just as shown on site.

Accessory downrod was great--but I ordered the wrong length. My fault :-(
By:Julie K. , Homeowner (Seattle)
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.
By:jeffrey d. , Homeowner (east aurora, ny)
The high vaulted ceiling is not an issue with the matching downrod. Everything went together easily and looks wonderful.

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.
By:Mitsuhiro N. , Homeowner (Novi, MI)
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.
By:Megan G. , Homeowner (Los Angeles)
With vaulted ceilings, we had to have the extension.
Minimalistic look makes a great statement, nice slim downrods with many length options!
By:Chelsea G. , Homeowner (CT)
By:Rob F. , Homeowner (Olympia)
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.
By:Priley , Homeowner (Austin)
It was very easy to add this downrod, and to install the fans. Awesome fans
By:Charley B. , Homeowner (Ohio)
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!
By:Julee W. , Homeowner (Savannah, GA, USA)
... 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.
By:Gary B. , Homeowner (Monte Rio, CA, USA)
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.
By:Donovan R. , Homeowner (Palm Springs, CA)
The extension rod was much needed in our 18' cathedral ceiling.
By:Toots , Homeowner (Monroe, NJ)
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.
By:Richy P. , Homeowner (Ithaca, NY, USA)
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.
By:Melissa P. , Architect (Austin, TX)
Very clean lines, works great.
By:DK770 , Homeowner (Atlanta)
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.
By:Rudi E. , Architect (greenwich ct)
I love the fan and the downrod.
By:Erin R. (atlanta, Ga.)
As advertised, it lets the fan hang lower. Pretty straightforward.
By:Greg , Homeowner (San Diego, CA)
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)
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.
By:Shawn B. , Homeowner (Monmouth county, NJ)
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.
By:Selim Y. , Designer (Bridgeport)
Very nice aluminum downrod, color matching and no balancing issues at all. 5 stars.
By:Jonathan L. , Homeowner (PA)
We have 14' ceilings, and the 48" downrod puts the fan at just the right height.
By:Fan B. , Homeowner
optional downrods are a must-have to properly install a fan at the correct height in a room. excellent range of downrod heights.
By:D.M. , Designer (NYC)
Not sure which downrod I needed but Y Lighting carried several to try at very good prices.
By:Stephen R. , Homeowner (Wilmington)
A downrod for a tall ceiling. For a 45 deg. ceiling need to get the special hub which is also available through YLighting.
By:Roberto L. , Homeowner (Houston, TX)
wish material was of better quality for the price
By:Nancy J. , Designer
Thanks for the match of theole and Stella fan. The advice for theole length was perfect
By:Jordan W. , Homeowner (Medway, MA, USA)
The ceilings in my house are so high. The downrod helps to make the air circulate throughout the office better.
By:Stanely J. , Designer (Palm Beach, Florida)
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.
By:David B. , Homeowner (New York, NY)
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.
By:Denise Marie S. , Homeowner (Panama City Beach, Florida)
Extremely happy with the product. Great retro look.
By:william k. , Designer (San Antonio Texas)
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.
By:Nicole P. (modesto, ca)
Thank goodness Modern Fan makes a down rod to match their galvanized fan.
By:Kim M. , Designer (Pittsburgh, Pa.)
These downrods were exactly what we needed and were easy to install.
By:Anonymous , Designer (Carrboro, NC)
I highly recommend this industrial looking ceiling fan and the additional drop bar is a perfect match.
By:Steve K. , Designer (Tulsa, OK)
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!
By:Will G , Homeowner (Danville, CA)
This patio fan is elegant, quiet and powerful. We bought the light kit and it looks great. I definitely recommended.
By:Daniela , Homeowner (Austin)
Having a longer rod for my fan made the fan better looking and more efficient.
By:Ana G. , Architect (AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA)
I used this to attach to my altus modern fan from my vaulted ceiling. Perfect height.
By:James , Homeowner (FL)
The manufacturing quality of the extension rod is not as good as the fan.
By:TON , Homeowner (MA)
Perfect for what I needed
By:Sheryl , Homeowner (Florida)
Perfect for what I needed
By:Sheryl , Homeowner (Florida)
I have a high sloped ceiling & the instructions made it easy to figure out if I could buy the fan & the downrod length.
By:Tina , Homeowner (Alamo, CA)
Matches fan body fine
By:Walter A. , Architect (New Orleans LA)
Perfect color match with fan, very stable, and fits exactly.
By:DSF , Homeowner (Colorado)
Works exactly as described. We have 14' ceilings and needed to bring the fan down low enough to benefit from the air movement.
