Galvanized Metal Ceiling Fans Add Industrial Age Look
Some designs never go out of style, and the Machine Age Galvanized Metal Ceiling Fan is the perfect example. Whether it’s installed indoors or on your covered front porch, the Machine Age Galvanized Metal Ceiling Fan’s historical, industrial style always enhances its surroundings.
Whether you have a coastal, industrial, modern or farmhouse style home, a galvanized metal finish on the fan’s blades and motor housing give it an Industrial Age look in a neutral tone that blends with any theme or decor. The large metal casing for the motor reflects the same rugged industrial appearance that was utilized within the Railroad Era.
Recently, a fan resembling the Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fan was pictured in an article on This Old House online. The fan’s galvanized metal finish complements the blue paint and white trim found on this 1920’s industrial farmhouse in the Catskill Mountains of upper New York state. The home’s owner, Bruce Littlefield, has a keen eye for vintage inspired decorations and accessories – he’s the author of several lifestyle books about decorating inside and out with vintage finds—including a book titled: Garage Sale America!
The Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fan is rated for damp locations, which means if you choose to use this outdoors, it should be shielded from areas exposed to heavy rains, dew or snow. To view more styles of our Vintage Ceiling Fans, visit the Ceiling Fans section at Barn Light Electric Co.®.
Note, for safety reasons, when ordering the Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fan with galvanized metal blades, the fan must be installed on ceiling heights of 10 feet or greater. But don’t worry! If you’re searching for the rugged, galvanized look but have lower ceiling heights – we still have something for you! We also offer traditional ceiling fan blades in finishes like white or silver that compliment the galvanized motor.
