Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

The Altus is another example of Ron Rezek using pure geometry to develop attractive and sophisticated design. The compact Altus features an organic shape that lends itself to virtually any interior. Available with either a brushed aluminum or gloss white finish and with a blade span of 36", 42" or 52".

The Altus is Energy Star rated when used as fan only. Optional light kit is available in both halogen (large or small glass) or fluorescent versions. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Includes 5" and 17" downrods for 12" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods are available for alternate heights. The Altus fan can accommodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately).

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 6215.42
  • Watts at high speed = 71.5
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 86.93

Optional control features:

  • 001 - Fan Speed Control: A basic fan control used to operate a fan only, providing four speeds.
  • 002 - Three Wire Fan Speed and Light Control: Intended for operation of a fan with light. Requires two circuits (three wires). Provides four speeds and full range dimming (except fluorescent lights, use 002ND non-dimming for fluorescent lighting). Any ceiling fan using a fluorescent lamp may not be dimmed or operated with a dimming control.
  • 003 - Handheld Remote Control: Designed for independent operation of a fan and light using only one circuit (two wires). Provides three speeds and full range dimming (for halogen or incandescent lamps) or "on/off" switching (for fluorescent lamps) and comes with a wall hanging bracket.
  • 004 - Two Wire Fan Speed and Light Control: Designed for independent operation of fan and light using only one circuit (two wires). Provides three speeds and full range dimming (for halogen or incandescent lamps) or "on/off" switching (for fluorescent lamps) and wires into wall box.
  • 005 - Wall Control with Remote Handset: A combination control package including the 004 Fan and Light Control and 003 Handheld Remote Control handset. Provides three speeds and full range dimming (for halogen or incandescent lamps) or "on/off" switching (for fluorescent lamps) from wall control and compatible remote handset.

Modern Fan Company

Modern Fan represents a new age in ceiling fans - the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design. Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes.

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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and elegant simplicity I like the Altus because of its elegant simplicity. I have 4 in my house: two 42" with lights in each guest bedroom and two 52" without lights in my master bedroom and den. I also bought wall controls and remote controls for each. The controls are very nice and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Design and Function Design works well in my kitchen remodel. Also bought one for the living room that connects. Works well with the Lutron fan control that was purchased to match the outlets and switches in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice fan(s) I bought 3 of these. They arrived very well packaged and they were straightforward to fit, helped by them not being too heavy. They are an attractive modern fan and I have no complaints at all. I also bought an Aurora Hugger fan, also from the Modern Fan Company, which is a nice match to the Altus but a little more awkward to fit. I find the Altus with the light option to be very odd looking and the Aurora is a more attractive alternative!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We just purchased 2 Altus ceiling fans for our new house and they are beautiful, elegant and contemporary. We have the same ones in our Manhattan apartment, so it was an easy decision to go ahead and buy the same ones for our week end home. They are affordable and look great and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and beautiful! We have this fan in our living room -- it's elegant, quiet and makes the room comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Elegant Fan Even though a fan is in the center of the room, it shouldn't be the center of attention. This fan has a simple elegant design that allows it to fall to the background, which is exactly what I wanted. Good design, works well.

Can this fan be used outside ?

Asked by: stace
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. This fan is not rated for outdoor applications because the unit is not watertight, meaning exposure to wind and rain would ruin the electrical components. It is however rated for damp locations, so it can be installed in humid environments like bathrooms. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

does this come with a pole that is much shorter so the fan can be closer to the ceiling

Asked by: Magnolia
Hi there. Yes this fan Includes 5" and 17" down rods for 12" or 24" overall heights, respectively. This allows you to swap out the down rods and adjust the fan height to meet a number of project constraints and environments.

What does it take to reverse the direction of the blades for summer to winter change?  We have 23' foot height in our loft and do not want to have to climb up there twice a year!  Thanks.

Asked by: Savta
Hi there! This fan has a switch on the fan body that is used to reverse the direction for the seasons. Modern Fan Company does offer longer down rods to make it more accessible for your space or should you prefer on that is fully controlled by remote, they make the DC Slim Ceiling Fan (http://www.ylighting.com/modern-fan-dc-slim-ceiling-fan.html).To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.

Handheld remote; ok, simple enough, it turns the fan on and off, maybe selects speed. Does it? 3 speed? Is the fan reversible? But what is the 2-wire with remote? I have two wires in my ceiling, not switched.

Asked by: TomD
Hi there Tom D! The Altus Ceiling Fan is manually reversible by way of a switch on the fan motor. It allows you to change the directions of the fan for the fall and winter to help circulate the warm air that tends to get trapped near the ceiling and improve winter energy efficiency! This does have compatible remote options that adjust the multiple speeds as well as if you have a light kit, but the remote will not reverse the fan direction. The two wire option is when you are using a fan and light in conjunction or 2 fans without light kits in conjunction with each other. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a Product Specialists directly – they are happy to shed light on the subject!

Can you use a ceiling fan dimmer (e.g., Lutron makes a three speed one) with this product.  I prefer a wall-mounted dimmer to a remote.

Asked by: SavFan
Good question! This acutally has multi-speed wall or remote control options. It is part of step 5 when placing your order for these fans. For the wall control, you want to select 001 for just the fan and 004 if you chose the fan with one of the light kit options. Should you need assistance or further clarification, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to speak to a Product Specialist directly, and we are more than happy to go over some options with you!

Are the blades individually removable?  I am looking to install this fan on our front porch, and it must go between the cathedral/vaulted ceiling and the joists.  But this would work only if the blades can be removed, and then reattached above the joists.

Asked by: Monty S
Hi there! The fan comes with the blades separate from the fan motor, so they should not create any conflict with your beams when installing this fan. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service

does this have a wall dimmer switch or a remote control switch?

Asked by: cova
Certainly! There are 6 different light control options for this fan. Options #001 and #009A/009B are for fan(s) only. 001-Fan Speed Control provides four speeds and opperates only one fan without a light. But for multiple fans without lights, you would want to order #009A (for two fans) or #009B (for three - five fans). If you would like to order the the Altus Ceiling Fan with a light kit, then you would want to consider one of the other four options. Keep in mind that all lamping options EXCEPT Fluorescent are dimmable. If your preference is the fluorescent, then you will need to order the ND (non-dimming) version of the following four controllers. The Two Wire Fan Speed & Light Control (#004/#004ND is to operate your fan and light with one wall control requires one circuit and provides full range light dimming and three fan speeds. The Three Wire Fan Speed & Light Control #002/#002ND offers four fan speeds and full dimming but is two wall plates and requires two circuits. If you prefer wireless operation of your fan, then option #003/003ND Handheld Remote Control) is right for you! This only requires one circuit and is the wireless version of option #004/004ND in that it also provides three speeds and only requires one circuit. It can be mounted to your wall for a stationary control base or travel around with you. #003/003ND does not require wall installation. Option #005/005ND is the combination of #003 and #004 giving you a wall control as well as the wireless remote with full dimming (fluorescent = non-dimming) and three fan speeds. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a Product Specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.
