Matthews-Atlas Donaire Outdoor IP Code Wet Location Ceiling Fan with LED Light Kit

(5 customer reviews)


The Donaire is one of only a very few ceiling fans on the market to be made from 316 marine grade stainless steel to make it suitable for salty, wet spray sea locations that would destroy regular stainless steel.  It is also IP code 44 rated for direct splash and rain from any direction.  It has a lovely design with ABS blades and a built-in LED light kit.

With a beautiful teardrop style motor housing the Donaire ceiling fan is stunning in design. It is constructed from 316 marine grade stainless steel (far superior to the normal 304 stainless) which is the only material resistant enough for salt-spray or salty air locations.  It is ideal for any outdoor use by the sea which would quickly destroy regular 304 grade stainless steel which is no more resistant to salt spray than regular mild steel. The reason being is that the protective passive layer that forms on 304 stainless steel is broken by the chloride ions in the salt rendering it useless which many builders don’t realise.  On 316 stainless steel this doesn’t happen due to the presence of molybdenum which keeps the protective layer intact.  Additionally, the Donaire is IP code 44 (International Protection Code) rated for wet locations which means that this it can take not only direct splashes of water from any direction but also even direct rain.  This makes it a perfect choice for boats, ships, leisure cruisers, seaside pubs, restaurants and condos especially in damp, humid and tropical climates.

5 reviews for Matthews-Atlas Donaire Outdoor IP Code Wet Location Ceiling Fan with LED Light Kit

  1. Looks great on our veranda – Amanda Hamilton (verified owner)

    We added this to our new condo and it makes a real difference on those hot days with little air movement.

  2. Just what we wanted – Jeremy Colsworth (verified owner)

    We had a lot of trouble finding a ceiling fan suitable for our boat. The Donaire was the only one made out of the salt proof 316 stainless stell that we could find and it is also a great fan delivering great air movement inside our cabin.

  3. Brilliant Rustproof Fan – Wolfgang Schmidt (verified owner)

    I searched high and low for a 316 stainless steel fan for my boat and this not only works perfectly but has had salt spray on it with not even any ptting in over a year. My previous ones were rusted through in 18 months so great job.

  4. Just What I Was Looking For – Winfred Robinson (verified owner)

    I put 4 of these outside in my seaside restaurant and they not only look good but so far no sign of any rust.

  5. Does a tough job – Terry Lloyd (verified owner)

    Matthews has a good reputation for quality and style so I was delighted to get a few of these for my boat knowing that they won’t rust with the corrosive salty water spray, they look great.
