The Quality of Fanimation Fans

As you know, a good number of Fanimation fans have highly unique blade shapes, designs and materials. These characteristics present unique workloads to the motors of those fans. Fanimation could just go to the factory and use an off-of-the-shelf motor and live with the motor noise and airflow results, but they choose not to.

A significant part of Fanimation's development process for any fan is designing the motor to best meet the needs of the overall design. They adjust anything from copper wire diameter, number of turns in the motor coils, lamination stack height, rotor skew angle and capacitors to make certain the motor is adequately designed for a given fan.

Product development here at Fanimation is obviously focused on providing unique design, but the parts of a fan the end user does not see are equally important.

In addition to the above product development details, Fanimation has an extensive quality control staff. They do not outsource quality control; these are all full time Fanimation employees. They have people in the factories every day to ensure the products that reach our customers meet the standard of quality people expect from Fanimation.

Obviously no company is perfect, but Fanimation invests more than any other fan company to exceed the expectation of customers.

Artcraft Lighting

Over 56 Years have passed since Albert Cohen and Samuel  Bernstein started the "ARTCRAFT" group of companies. They had some very  simple principles to guide them – conduct your business honestly and  with integrity, have pride in your work, show respect for everyone you deal with, be creative in your thoughts and action, give back to your community, and family is above all.

Contessa AC370
These values have been passed down through the generations and have been inculcated in all who work at "ARTCRAFT" today and who are part of the "ARTCRAFT Family" and  its rich history. With all the changes that have occurred in the last 56  years, adherence to our founding fathers principles has allowed the "ARTCRAFT" brand to grow and flourish. Although Artcraft has always tried to embrace the latest materials and the newest technologies, they have  never served as a substitute for the pride of craftsmanship nor for the attention to detail we give to each and every product.

Artcraft is dedicated to designing the most fashionable and functional lighting but  the production must be executed as flawlessly as possible because quality is timeless.

WAC Lighting has introduced three new Miniature LEDme™ Quick Connect Luminaires—Charge, Ovum and Portal. These Quick Connect™ fixtures can be used with WAC’s wide range of track and rail systems.
Constructed of die-cast aluminum, the three LEDme™ luminaires deliver strong projected light without any heat or radiation. Dimmable with an electronic low voltage dimmer, the fixtures rotate horizontally 360 degrees and have a 90-degree vertical tilt.
Ideal for placement in residential, retail, hospitality and commercial applications, Charge, Ovum and Portal can be used with the company’s Quick Connect™ Canopy Mount, 120-volt Track Systems, Linear Track System, FLEXRAIL1™ (single-circuit line voltage monorail system), FLEXRAIL2™ (two-circuit line voltage monorail system); Solorail™ (single-circuit low voltage monorail system), and Duorail™ (two-circuit low voltage rail system).

Portal consumes just 3.76 watts, using three LEDs and delivering 100 lumens with a 3000K-color temperature and a wide beam spread. Ovum and Charge consume just 2.69 watts each, using LEDs that deliver 109 lumens with a 2900K-color temperature, and are available in spot (8 degrees), flood (25 degrees) and wide beam angles (40 degrees). The LED luminaires minimize energy consumption and maintenance while extending their life to 50,000 hours.
