How did Casablanca Fan Company gain the reputation for making "The Worlds Best Ceiling Fans?"
It starts with the fact that Casablanca is the only ceiling fan company in the United States with its own in-house design team. Casablanca has never blindly followed the latest trends;
rather they prefer to explore, imagine, lead and set the trends. Their world-class designers, who come from the Paris fashion houses and leading toy companies,
craft each fan prototype to perfection.
To be a leader one
must always originate and not merely imitate. Seizing the initiative,
Casablanca set a lasting precedent by establishing the Industry's
premier in-house design and engineering team. Their exclusive mission
is to create original and authentic fans of the highest quality. New
ideas emerge from many sources; a page from history, an art
exhibition, and travels to remote lands. Casablanca's designers search
everywhere for new inspirations, uncovering treasures from earlier
times and charting new trends in decor.
The fans depicted here
are of the finest quality and design in the world! Casablanca Ceiling
Fan Company was founded in 1974 by Burton A. Burton. By the late
seventies the company was represented throughout the USA by over 1,000
lighting showroom and ceiling fan specialty stores.
the latest technology into the ceiling fan design process and secured
engineering and design patents for a variety of innovations including:
lightweight die-cast construction, electronically reversible motors
with variable speed and silent operation and the Hang True canopy
which permitted easy installation of ceiling fans on flat or sloped
In 1983 Casablanca
introduced Inteli-Touch to the ceiling fan industry, a computerized
wall control which, for the first time, offered a choice beyond the
traditional three-speed pull chain method. Comfort-Touch ceiling fans
were introduced in 1990 as an RF controlled programmable multifunction
ceiling fan, lighting and climate control system that remains unique
within the industry to this day. The Versa-Touch ceiling fan control
was introduced in 1995 as a RF controlled hand-held, multi-functioned
In 2013 Casablanca introduced a new concept and called it "Custom Casablanca". Custom Casablanca fans do not include blades or lights, so you pick and choose the components
you want in order to design a Casablanca ceiling fan that fits your room setting. Although Casablanca Fan Company has had many customizable ceiling fans over the years,
Custom Casablanca models are different in that they ALL share similar design components that allow the blades, light fixtures and controls to be interchanged.
The decision to make this possible required design changes from the bottom up for each Custom Casablanca fan in order to make this possible. Things such as the fan canopy and
light bottom cap had to be redesigned in order to accommodate the remote receiver unit and light kits. The blade holders all had to have the same hole patterns so that the blades
would fit, yet each model has blade holders of different styles and shapes. Consolidating these components allows for greater flexibility and cuts back on the amount of SKUs that
need to be made and kept in stock. This consolidation also cuts back on the cost of offering all of the potential custom combinations without cutting back on the quality
and integrity of the product. So it is a win-win for both the manufacturer and consumer.
More Great Information...
fans are created equal...Before you purchase a ceiling fan there
are some very important things you should know about how fans work in
general and what makes some fans better than others. Knowing what
questions to ask is important so here are some comparison guidelines.
and wobbling have their place on the dance floor...Movers
and shakers are great to watch on the dance floor but not on your
ceiling. There's nothing more annoying than a ceiling fan that
wobbles. A Casablanca fan however has been specifically engineered to
eliminate fan wobble. Each set of our real wood veneer blades are
carefully weighed and balanced ensuring smooth operation.
fans should be seen and not heard...An electric motor hum is a
trademark of cheap fans and can be very trying on hot summer nights
when you are trying to sleep. Cheaper ceiling fans have stamped metal
parts which can amplify buzzes or hums within the fan's motor housing.
Casablanca motors feature heavy metal castings and precision sealed
ball bearings top and bottom to ensure silent operation and a long
your ceiling fan leave you hot under the collar... Just because a
ceiling fan moves air doesn't mean it moves enough air to keep you
comfortable. The blade pitch (or angle) determines how much air is
moved when the fan is on. Some fans have blades with a very shallow
pitch because their motors are not powerful enough to handle the extra
demand made by steeper blade pitches. Casablanca fans use a motor
which is engineered to be more than powerful enough to operate fan
blades with a full 14 degree pitch. So you always get the right amount
of air to keep cool and comfortable.
fans should lower energy costs not raise them... Rather than just
offering you a cooling breeze on a hot summer day or re-circulating
ceiling-trapped hot air in the winter, Casablanca ceiling fans come
with an energy saving promise. If used properly our fans can help to
reduce your energy costs. It is important when selecting a fan to make
sure the motor is large enough to operate it efficiently or you won't
enjoy comfort or energy savings. Even though Casablanca fans, running
at full speed, consume about the same amount of energy as a 100 watt
light bulb, they are also extremely powerful and exceptionally
efficient. Cheaper fans with smaller with smaller motors use more
powerful long term investment that pays dividends daily...Casablanca fans are made to last a long time. At the heart of every
Casablanca fan is a powerful motor, superbly engineered and guaranteed
for the life of your fan (except for our moisture-resistant fans,
Cascade and Delta VV). Many manufacturers use motors which were
designed for appliances other than ceiling fans. These "off the
shelf" motors can be cheaply made and are often less powerful.
They can wear out prematurely and provide very little value for your
finished like a Casablanca?
It s bright
and shiny! That's how your Casablanca fan will look for many years
because of the extra time and expense we take with our metal
finishing. Many manufacturers use cheap stamped metal parts that are
plated by the least expensive method possible. The result is a finish
that looks thin, rough and lacks depth. Eventually, these finishes
will oxidize and corrode because they are not even given a protective
thick shiny brass finish begins with quality, precision die-cast
parts. Then we plate them utilizing a multi-step process that includes
polishing and buffing. The resulting finish is thick, clear and
jewel-like. And to make sure it stays that way we bake on a clear
finishes perform equally as well. All visible metal parts are coated
with a sophisticated electrostatic applied dry powder epoxy. The epoxy
powder melts and fuses to the metal in a high temperature oven. The
resulting finish is exceptionally corrosion free.
comfort and convenience is at your fingertips with one of our advanced
computerized control systems...With
Casablanca's innovative electronic control systems you can program the
environment of each room for dependable comfort and energy savings. In
addition to the Three-Speed, pull chain models, Casablanca offers
three advanced control systems which are microcomputer driven.
The Inteli-Touch Control System puts complete control of all fan functions
at your fingertips. This includes turning the fan on and off,
selecting the speed, dimming or brightening the lights and reversing
the fan drive action. With the "Fan-Minder" Program you can
stay comfortably in bed knowing that Inteli-Touch will automatically
compensate for the cool night air. You get additional comfort with the
Home-Safe feature, a controlled lighting cycle that makes your home
look occupied when you're not there. With all this advanced technology
Inteli-Touch is extremely easy to operate and installs quickly in an
existing light switch junction box no special wiring is required.
exclusive Advan-Touch Control System features a completely wireless
remote control which operates fan and light actions within a 50-foot
radius of the fan. Easy to read and use, the remote control can be
wall-mounted or, for added convenience, carried to bedside or easy
chair. Comfort-Touch wireless remote control can be wall mounted or
can be taken to your favorite chair for even greater Comfort-Touch
controls are available in black or white and feature twin
wireless remote control can also be wall mounted or taken to that
favorite chair where you can operate both fan and light functions
within a 35-foot radius. With 32 programmable transmission channels

- Quality Inside and Out
philosophy of the Casablanca Fan Company has, over the past two
decades, made them leaders in the ceiling fan industry. It's a
commitment to the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of
the business, from manufacturing specifications, to fan motors, to the
quality after-purchase service.

components on Casablanca fans are made by pouring molten zinc into
precision dies - not by the less expensive cold-cutter method

woods, metals and crystal take shape under the skilled hands of
Casablanca craftsmen yielding a beautiful piece of functional art that
beginning Casablanca fans incorporated many time consuming, expensive,
extra steps to ensure the impeccable quality and efficient performance
of the finished products. And these methods prevail.
commitment to quality is evident in every part of their fans.
instead of using inexpensive metal stampings, most of Casablanca's
metal fans are die-cast for better appearance, durability and silent
operation. All fan blades (except our composite all-weather and fabric
blades) are laminated with real wood veneers which means they finish
like a fine piece of furniture and resist warping. Wood blades on each
Casablanca fan are also color and grain matched and balanced.
to be maintenance free, the Casablanca motor was developed exclusively
for use in their fans and is powerful enough to run the fans
efficiently, yet silently, for the life of the fan. Motors feature
precision, sealed ball bearings top and bottom to ensure quiet
operation and a long maintenance free life. Precise design and
manufacturing tolerances result in a fan assembly that is noise and
wobble-free in operation.

Precision Engineering :
Dynamically balanced rotor and shaft eliminate
vibration and wobble.
The heart of a fan, the motor is responsible for
producing quiet operation while supplying the power to drive fan
blades for maximum air movement. The motor must be designed and
engineered to work flawlessly over a long period of time. Rather than
buy “off the shelf” generic motors, Casablanca designs, engineers
and manufactures motors for each specific fan application. Casablanca
produces two types of motors in several sizes.
XLP-2000™ Series vs. Other Motors
Casablanca has designed, engineered and manufactured a
new ceiling fan motor that delivers unprecedented performance. Larger
and more powerful than any competing motor, the Casablanca XLP-2000
series motor uses more raw materials and better insulation, which
results in cooler operating temperatures and longer life. The
Casablanca XLP-2000 series motor received a UL Class A Rating from
Underwriters Laboratories. The XLP-2000 series motor, when combined
with Casablanca’s shock-absorbing Silent-Flex® flywheel delivers
noise free operation. Choose a fan of lesser quality and you will hear
Smaller, less powerful motors found on other ceiling fans may have to
strain, producing higher operating temperatures, lower air output,
noisier operation and potential for failure.
Casablanca Direct Drive™
Casablanca Direct Drive motors lead the evolution of
design, engineering and material quality in ceiling fans. Premium
steel and copper, superior material densities and laminations combine
with extra engineering steps that ensure perfect coordination with
housing, blade holders and blades. The result is higher performance,
cooler and quieter operation, and a lifetime of enjoyment.
The XLP motors are found exclusively
in select Casablanca fans
Powerful and Reliable... Quiet and Invisible... Quality Exceeding Expectation...
inside a high performance Casablanca fan is just as important as
what's on the outside. Although the motor is totally silent and hidden
inside the body of the fan, you can rest assured that it will be there
"quietly" working "hard" for you day and night for
as long as you own your Casablanca ceiling fan.
Not an Ordinary Motor...The
XLP ceiling fan motor is not just an ordinary application motor like
those used in most ceiling fans. It is a high performance motor that
was designed by Casablanca from the ground up to operate the World's
best ceiling fans.
XLP2000 or XLP2001 is a stationary 18-pole permanent split induction
motor with a rotating drive shaft. A dynamically balanced rubber
Silent-Flex flywheel is used to stabilize the fan from wobbling while
its turbine-like fins, molded into the flywheel, provide cooler running
temperature with higher performance.
this really means is the XLP2000 fan motor has much more power, does
not wobble, moves more air, and lasts longer than other fan
motors...and it does this without making a noise!
other fan manufacturers use what commonly referred to as "application motors". These motors are not designed
specifically for ceiling fans. They are mass produced for generic
applications and might be found in appliances such as dishwashers,
washing machines, garbage disposals and so on...These
inexpensive motors are much less powerful, and more likely to wobble,
burn out, and make noise.
QUESTION: Will remote automatically work with this fan or will I have to do any rewiring? The ceiling fan I have is worried directly and not to a wall switch.
ANSWER: This remote is only designed to work with specific Casablanca ceiling fans, so the answer depends on the fan that you already have. The receiver wires into the canopy at the ceiling. No extra wiring is necessary to install the receiver aside from connecting it to the existing ceiling wiring and to the fan wiring. Please contact us to discuss your particular fan model.
QUESTION: The add shows a 4 speed wall control with a lite control. Is that included in the price of the 55061 Casablanca fan?
ANSWER: The Panama Gallery fan does include the 4 speed wall control at the price published on our site. The optional 99020 hand held remote control is also included FREE for a limited time. (That offer may have expired by the time other visitors read this posting).
QUESTION: will a 1994 wall for a intelertouch and rods work with a new fan ?
ANSWER: No, the inteli-touch system is antiquated and not compatible with new Casablanca fans. Casablanca has also changed their mounting hardware and downrods, so the older downrods will not work either.
QUESTION: i have a 25 ft ceiling in my living room and I need a fan and a downrod that would make sense. Any ideas?
ANSWER: High ceilings such as yours require a powerful ceiling fan with an extra long downrod. For many brands, we have downrod couplers that allow you to connect downrods together to create a longer downrod. The actual fan we recommend will be determined by several other factors including: Style, Finish, Room Size and your budget. We will call you to discuss these things and help you choose the best ceiling fan for your needs. For those reading this response, it is best if you simply call and talk to one of our ceiling fan experts at: 1-800-201-1193.
QUESTION: Are the Casablanca wine country rosewood blades outdoor rated?
ANSWER: The Casablanca wine country rosewood blades are NOT rated for use outdoors. Thanks to your question, I have modified the blade options page to make it more clear which blades are "Indoor Only", "Outdoor Damp" or "Outdoor Wet" rated.
QUESTION: Can I change the halogen to CFL bulb? Enough room? I may need an adapter.
ANSWER: You cannot change the halogen bulb to a CFL bulb, there is not enough room nor was it designed for use with CFL bulbs. The reason Casablanca uses a halogen bulb instead of a fluorescent bulb is that the halogen is dimmable. The DC Stealth competes directly with the Emerson Midway Eco, which is currently the top selling DC ceiling fan on the market. The Emerson Midway Eco uses a Fluorescent bulb which is NOT dimmable. So for consumers who really want the ability to dim the lights, they are more likely to purchase the Stealth. So if you prefer to have a fluorescent light, you may want to consider the Emerson Midway Eco. Here is a link to it on our site: Emerson Midway Eco
QUESTION: ." Control transmitter NOT recommended for use with more than one ceiling fan.. " How do you control this fan if you have two fans installed on a vaulted ceiling?
ANSWER: Each of the Casablanca Vita ceiling fans will come with their own remote control that should be programmed to match up with its own fan when installed. So you simply use one control for each fan. We never recommend trying to use 1 remote transmitter to control 2 fans because if for some reason one picks up the signal and the other does not, then your fans will be out of sync (1 on and 1 off), and it is difficult to get them back in sync. The potential for this problem is even worse in larger rooms where one fan may be out of range of the transmitter while the other is not depending on where you are standing in the room. For this reason, you will find that virtually all ceiling fan manufacturers recommend using a single remote control for each fan. Hardwired wall controls are the only 100% reliable method of controlling multiple fans at the same time, but it is costly to run the wires in such a manner if they do not already exist, which is why many of the higher end fans nowadays come with remote controls. So, just use the 2 controls that you get with the fans.
QUESTION: Need advice to remove ceiling fan Casablanca Model No. CB 184440 from the ceiling. The fan is so tight to the ceiling I cannot get a screwdriver between the fan to get to a slot in the cover that is against the ceiling. I can see a screw in the slot but cannot get to it. Do I have to take the fan apart? Or what?
ANSWER: Not sure what model of Casablanca fan you have since the model number you supplied is not a Casablanca model number. Regardless, my suggestion is that you tilt the fan away from you as you attempt to remove the screw. The fan sits in a ball that can rotate up to 30 degrees when you push on it. Be careful not to bend the blade irons by pushing on the blades. I would remove the blades first for that matter to make it easier. Also, it is best if you use a very short phillips head screwdriver.
If you email me some pictures of your fan, I will most likely recognize it and may be able to offer a different tip, or at least confirm that my advice was correct. Email pictures to: email@example.com
