The Brewmaster Long Neck carries on Fanimations reputation for reproducing unusual, yet functional belt-driven ceiling fans. These fans were originally produced in the late 1800s by Shediker and Carr, the premier belt-drive fan manufacturer of their day. Fanimation has adapted this timeless masterpiece to install and operate with more ease and durability by using Neoprene belting instead of high-maintenance leather belts. The lead and copper babbitt sleeves have been replaced with more durable sealed ball bearings. The system uses a single gearless drive motor (model FP1280) that is designed to drive up to 4 fan heads (model FP10). For custom configurations other than those shown on our website, please call to order.
This Brewmaster package includes a single Long-Neck fan body and drive motor with 30 feet of belt (for up to 14 foot distance from motor to fan body). The blades are also included as shown. Optional light fixtures attach to drive motor, not fan bodies.
This label is required by the FTC to be published by any company selling this fan on the Internet.

Can I operate more than 1 fan from a single remote? Although it is possible to operate multiple ceiling fans from a single remote control, we do NOT recommend it with any brand. Doing so can cause your fans to get out of sync (one off and the other on, or one on high and the other on low) and getting them back in sync becomes quite a challenge. To avoid frustration, be sure to operate each fan from its own designated remote control.
This ceiling fan can be installed on ceilings that are 8 or 9 feet high and can be angled up to 30 degrees without the need for any additional
mounting hardware, so what is in the box will be sufficient. If you have a high ceiling or vaulted ceiling that is angled more than 30 degrees (or both),
you may need a downrod or angled ceiling adapter in order to install your fan.
Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: This fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 107.5" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 107.5" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling dowrod if one is available for the fan (see below).
If you cannot find what you need to make this fan work in your room, please give us a call so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.
Angled Ceiling Kit - Required for ceilings angled more than 30 and up to 45 degrees. Not needed for ceilings angled 30 degrees or less (or flat). Ceilings angled more than 45 will require a box framed into the ceiling to flatten the surface where the fan is to be installed.
Building codes require ceiling fans to be installed with the blades no lower than 7 feet from the floor in residential applications (industrial fans may require more distnace). The closer you are to the fan blades, the more cooling effect you will feel, so 7 feet is the optimal distance from the floor for most residential ceiling fans to get the most benefit.
Any light fixture you choose to add to this fan is allowed to be less than 7 feet from the floor, so just make sure you have enough headroom to walk under it if need be.
The downrod included with the Fanimation Single Brewmaster Long Neck Belt Drive ceiling fan is 0", which puts the blades 23.5" from the ceiling. Here are the Minimum Ceiling Heights required for each downrod available for this fan. Each length will put the fan blades 7 feet from the floor, so if you want your fan blades higher than 7 feet, choose a shorter downrod to fit your needs.
This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 30 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 30 degrees, you can by an Angled Ceiling Adapter that will allow you to install the fan on a ceiling angled up to 45.
Ceiling Angle Calculator
How to measure Rise:
Rise is the vertical distance your ceiling rises for every horizontal foot. Rise per foot is called Pitch. A roof with a 4/12 pitch rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches horizontal.
Our calculator uses roof pitch to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Since we already know the horizontal measurement is 12", we only need you to enter in the vertical rise to make the calculation.
To measure the rise of your ceiling: Hold a 12" ruler ruler horizontally (using a level) with one corner touching the ceiling. Then take measure the vertical distance from the other end of the ruler to the ceiling. This is the rise. Select your dimensions in the form above to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Most ceiling fans (except for hugger fans) can hang on ceilings angled up to 30 degrees without
the need for an angled ceiling adapter. 30 degrees is slightly less than a 7/12 pitch. Most angled ceiling adapters will allow your fan to hang up to 45 degress...which is a 12/12 pitch.
The Fanimation Single Brewmaster Long Neck Belt Drive is UL Listed for Outdoor Damp Locations, which means the fan is rated for indoor or outoor use in covered areas where there is excessive moisture, but not direct exposure to rain or sprinklers. It's great for fully covered patios and porches or screened enclosures. All outdoor ceiling fans can also be installed inside your house, so they are also great for bathrooms and laundry rooms or any other room inside your home. NOTE: Certain blade options may not be suitable for use in outdoor damp locations. Make sure the blades you choose are suitable for your location.

Finding a place that provices great service is equally important, but more difficult to accomplish without interacting with someone.
Although the Internet makes it easy to compare prices, it does little to ensure you are going to get good service. Ultimately, our goal is to offer you both the
Best Price and the Best Service, a claim that most companies make but few can live up to.
If you are like me, claims regarding great customer service are empty words until proven otherwise. So, initially, you begin searching for the site with the
lowest price because it is so easy to compare prices online. But prices are fickle. They can change from site to site at any given moment, whereas
customer service typically remains constant. Either a site offers great service or it doesn't.
We are not hiding anything here. We know that the prices we have on our website may or may not be lowest you can find at any given moment. However, by taking all
orders over the phone, we have the distinct advantage of being able to make adjustments when necessary.
The bottom line is, if you have found a better price on this item, please give us a call.
We will appreciate being given the opportunity to beat it, and in the process, give you a chance to experience our excellent customer service!
Find a better price even after you buy your fan and we'll refund the difference!
Don't worry, if you find for less after you make your purchase!
Our Low Price Guarantee not only applies to the time at which you purchase your fan. If you EVER find a better price after you purchase this fan from us,
we will REFUND THE DIFFERENCE based on our Price Guarantee Guidelines!
The one thing that we are most proud of and sets us aside from our competition is our professional customer service. After being in the ceiling fan business for

However, knowledge is one thing...customer satisfaction is another.
We know that the main reason we have survived all of these years is because of our dedication to making
sure every one of our customers has a great experience dealing with us. This is not something we had to learn, it is just what we have always done.
