This high quality fan features a directional 3-speed oscillating ceiling fan equipped with standard remote control and standard slope ceiling canopy. The Diane oscillating directional ceiling fan provides maximum, multi-directional airflow and can be hung in small, awkward spaces or in front of HVAC ducts to make more efficient the heating, ventilation or air conditioning of any room. Select either solid wood blades with no cage or metal blades with a decorative safety cage. The fan is suitable for indoor use and is damp rated for outdoor locations when used with metal blades.
Ceiling Fan Video
How the Matthews Diane Fan Operates
The Diane ceiling fan pivots on a horizontal axis while the fan motor spins as shown in the above video of the Diane fan in operation. The fan pivots at a speed
similar to what you see above, but the rotation of the blades has been slowed down dramatically in the video so you can see how the fan works. The blades actually spin very rapidly to produce
lots of airflow.
Included Remote Control Control
Included Control (MG-REMOTE): 3-Speed Remote Control.
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.
Low, High or Vaulted Ceiling Installation Options
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 103" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 103" 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.
To calculate the length of downrod that you need to get as close to 7 feet from the floor as possible (but not lower), first you must look at the dimensions of the fan to determine how far from the ceiling the blades will hang using the standard mounting hardware. In most cases, the hardware that a ceiling fan ships with is all you need for an 8 or 9 foot high ceiling...but be sure to double check the distance a fan hangs from the ceiling because some fans hang down more than 18" and will require at least a 9 or 10 foot ceiling.
Once you know how far the fan hangs with the standard mounting hardware you can calculate how far it will hang with a longer downrod by subtracting the length of the standard downrod from the length of a longer downrod. Add that length to the distance the fan normally hangs from the ceiling to determine how far down your fan will hang with any particular downrod length. If you do not know the length of the downrod that is included with you can figure that 4" is about average.
If none of the dimensions you need to make your calculation are not shown on our website, then please call us to have someone help you choose the correct downrod.
Here is an example of the calculation:
If a fan comes with a standard 4 1/2" downrod, a 12" downrod would make the fan hang 12" - 4 1/2" further from the ceiling...or 7 1/2" further. So if the fan normally hangs 12" from the ceiling with a 4 1/2" downrod, it would hang 17 1/2" (12" + 7 1/2") from the ceiling. So if you want the fan to hang as close to 84" from the floor, then do the math to calculate the longest downrod you can use to get closest to 84" without going past 84".
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.

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!

we will REFUND THE DIFFERENCE based on our Price Guarantee Guidelines!

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.
Answer: The Matthews Diane ceiling fan that you are referring to cannot be installed on the wall. However, there are several similar fans that can be. Here is a link to find them on our site: Wall Mounted Fans
On another website, it says the fan is damp rated with metal blades. Is this accurate?
Also, any idea on the CFS figure?
Answer: You are correct, the Matthews Fan Company Diane ceiling fans are damp rated if used with metal blades. Matthews Fan Company has not tested the fan for CFMs as the Diane is exempt from EPA airflow testing requirements because it is not categorically considered a ceiling fan by the EPA. Therefore, we have no published CFM data to offer regarding the specific amount of airflow the fan produces. However, our experience is that it moves more air than a typical traditional style ceiling fan, so you should be quite pleased with the performance.
Hi- can you tell me if this stem can be removed or cut down? I have an 8 foot high ceiling. thanks, coco
Answer: The Diane fan comes with a 5" downrod, which puts the bottom of the fan at 19" from the ceiling when the fan head is turned horizontal. You can cut the downrod prior to installation, but will likely only be able to cut off 2 or 3 inches, which will put the fan at about 16" from the ceiling. Therefore, the Diane fan must only be installed on ceilings that are at least 100" high since the blades must be at least 84" from the ceiling (7 feet).
Answer: As of the time you posted your question, the answer is no...it does not. However, it may come in various other finishes in the future. I say this because often times the answer to such questions will change in the future, and since these questions get posted to our website, it is important to know that things change over time.
