Belt Driven Ceiling Fans

What is a belt driven ceiling fan?

Belt driven ceiling fans were some of the very first ceiling fans ever created and have been around since the turn of the century. These unique ceiling fans operate from a single motor that has a pully which drives a belt that is stretched between each individual fan. The belt drive motor is attached to the wall or ceiling. Originally, the belt was driven by water wheels located outside the building with elaborate belt and pully systems. Nowadays, we use electricity. Some of the belt driven fans have a single fan while others can have multiple fans. The length between each fan can be up to 20 feet or so and there can be up to 5 fans driven by a single belt and motor. Belt driven ceiling fans are normally seen in commercial applications, although some people will install them in their home if the layout of the home lends itself to this application...and the budget is relatively unlimited. The majority of belt drive ceiling fans that you see in restaraunts and hotels and magazines are manufactured by Fanimation, the premier manufacturer of belt driven ceiling fans. Although belt driven fans move a slight amount of air, they are designed more for show than for function.

Ceiling Fan Size Chart

Shopping Tip: The majority of the air you feel from a ceiling fan is right beneath the fan, so when it comes to choosing the right size fan to cool a room, bigger is better! Whether a larger fan will look good is a more subjective matter of personal preference. Read more about: "How To Choose The Right Size Ceiling Fan" or Talk To A Ceiling Fan Expert: 1-800-201-1193.
