Lower Your Ceiling Fan To The correct Height
These drop rods are for use only with the Henley Zephyr fans. Drop rods are often called extension, down pipe or down rods. They are important as they bring the ceiling fan down to the correct height for the correct and efficient operation which is about a meter above head height. The length of the drop rod will be determined by the ceiling height and the drop of the fan. If your ceiling is above 2.8m/9.2 ft then the length of drop rod that needs to be added will be whatever is needed to keep the fan at a 2.8m/9.2 ft height. A ceiling fan will still work even if it is higher than this but will loose some of its effect. If the fan blades are properly balanced then there should be no wobble even with a long drop rod.
They are available in brushed chrome, matt black, textured matt black (beautiful special powder coated/oven baked extra-hard finish), matt white and brushed brass in 24″/61cm and 40″/100cm lengths. These can be cut down to the required length.
Other Sized Drop Rods
In-between sizes – The drop rods can be cut down if required and simply need a new hole drilling for the cotter pin to go into.
Longer sizes – We do have a small number of 60″/152cm in textured matt black that are Hunter drop rods that we have trimmed to fit and had sand blasted and powder coated in a beautiful textured matt black. You will also need to add a length of 3-core wire to extend the standard 40″ connector set supplied. Please call for availability and pricing.
3m Extra-Long Drop Rods – We have designed our own custom 3m drop rods made in a local top quality fabricator. Please see separate listing for details.
