    In-depth Review

    56" FlatJET DC Ceiling Fan

    Crisp modern lines coupled with a high performance and low energy motor, the brand new 56″ FlatJET DC ceiling fan effectively delivers power, control and comfort that perfectly complements contemporary Australian living (indoors and outdoors). Thanks to its unique modern design, powerful air movement, feature-packed remote control and power-saving DC motor the FlatJET ceiling fan raises the bar on form and function where it matters. The super thin profile DC motor design contrasts impressively with the aerodynamic polymer blades, so the FlatJET has curves in all the right places. The elegant sweeping blades use a variable blade pitch to curve and contour for optimal breeze distribution, so you stay comfortable in style.

    Starting from $359.

    DC Motor

    Class leading DC motor technology provides amazing performance coupled with exceptional energy efficiency.

    Utilising the latest in DC motor technology to provide a high performance and high efficiency cooling solution. The FlatJET ceiling fan uses a class leading DC motor engineered to provide high torque while consuming less power. This allows the FlatJET to provide exceptional airflow while being extremely energy efficient to operate – using only 42W on high and as little as 4W on low speed.

     
    DC motors use pulse modulation to keep the motor turning. Essentially what this means is that it is not constantly driving the motor to spin, it does it with pulses of energy at intervals and is one of the reasons they consume less energy than AC motors.

    Aerodynamic blades

    Aerodynamic polymer blade design for powerful airflow.

    The FlatJET DC ceiling fan’s aerodynamic blade design utilises a varying blade pitch to provide sweeping airflow directly below the fan and sweeping outwards from the fan. The aerodynamic blades are crafted from polymer (a high grade ABS plastic) that helps ensure highly efficient air delivery. Each injection moulded blade is corrosion proof, UV stabilised, easy to maintain and weather resistant. This means the FlatJET’s blades will continue to look stunning for years to come.

     
    Thanks to the aerodynamic nature of the FlatJET’s blades, you can often achieve higher airflow at lower RPMs so you stay cooler with less wind noise.

    Fan Finishes

    Make a bold statement with the Black finish or keep things subtle and discreet with the Matte White finish.

    The FlatJET ceiling fan is available in both Black and Matte White finishes to suit a range of modern decors and styles. The modern design of the FlatJET lends itself to most contemporary and open living aesthetics in Australia and can be used both indoors and outdoors. The powder coated finish on steel components helps resist the elements, while the all-weather polymer blades will never rust or corrode.

    Performance

    Spinning at 160 RPMs on high, the FlatJET provides 14,940 CMH airflow while using only 42W. This gives the FlatJET an excellent efficiency rating of 356 CMH/W on high speed.

    At 142cm (56 inches), the FlatJET DC ceiling fan has an above-average blade span ideal for bedrooms, medium to large living areas and alfresco outdoor spaces. The increased blade sweep provides airflow distributed over a slightly larger area.

    Fan Speeds

    The included stylish remote control provides 6 speed settings (double that of standard AC ceiling fans) so you can fine tune your cooling needs with the perfect balance of speed, airflow, noise and power usage.

     
    Rotations Per Minute (RPMs) shows how fast your ceiling fan spins. There are many factors that influence fan performance, so a fast spinning fan may not mean better performance for you. To learn more, read our Ceiling Fan Performance Guide.

    The extra speed settings mean you will often be able to run your FlatJET DC ceiling fan more efficiently by fine tuning the speed to match your daily needs. For example, you could run the FlatJET DC on Speed 3 to match the 52″ standard AC ceiling fan’s airflow output on high, while the FlatJET would only consume a quarter of the power (13 W compared to 60 W).

    Airflow Volume

    Airflow volume helps show how much air a ceiling fan moves in a space. Its important to note that airflow volume is not the same as airflow velocity, which is the primary way ceiling fan’s cool people (windchill). The higher the airflow volume the more air a ceiling fan will move. This can be helpful to identify ceiling fans that will provide adequate airflow for larger spaces.

    The FlatJET DC ceiling fan moves slightly more air on its Speed 4 than the standard AC ceiling fan does on its highest speed (3). By running your FlatJET fan on Speed 4 you would enjoy similar cooling benefit with the advantage of slower RPMs (for less wind noise) and less power consumption (21 W compared to 60 W).

    Power usage

    Power usage helps identify the models that will consume the lowest amount of electricity and therefore cost you the least to run. Attempt to factor in which speeds you believe your ceiling fan will most commonly need to be run on.

    Using an example electricity rate of 26.62 c/kWh, it would cost $0.14 a day ($13.41 per quarter) to run the FlatJET DC ceiling fan on high for 12 hours and low for 12 hours every day. By comparison, the standard 52″ AC ceiling fan would cost $0.23 a day ($20.92 per quarter). Greater savings can be achieved by tweaking your fan’s speed settings to match your needs. For example, running your FlatJET on medium (speed 3) would produce similar airflow volume as the standard AC ceiling fan on high but reduce it’s energy consumption. Running on Speed 3 for 12 hours and low speed for 12 hours would cost $0.05 a day ($4.96 per quarter).

    CMH / W

    Efficiency

    The FlatJET ceiling fan’s low power usage of 42W for a large 56″ ceiling fan, coupled with a high airflow volume translates to an extremely high efficiency rating of 356 CMH/W on high speed that only gets better on lower speeds. The higher the efficiency rating, the more air the ceiling fan moves per watt consumed.
