Each fan we sell is custom made for a specific installation. The price includes the motor unit, the fans and hubs, bearings, couplers, pulleys, blade holders, and crating. Shipping costs dependent on location. Several fan blade options available. Scroll to bottom of page to see blade options.

A few notes about these type of fans:
They are known as vertical ceiling fans mounted to a horizontal axle usually powered by a single belt driven motor. Some call them horizontal paddle fans, others say mechanical ceiling fans or long ceiling fans.
Shaft-driven ceiling fans, also known as belt-driven or vertical ceiling fans, have multiple sets of blades on a horizontal shaft that is powered by a single motor. The number of blade sets is customizable, which makes the system very suitable for long rectangular areas. They are frequently used in cathedral ceiling areas, lobbies, bars and restaurants.
