If anyone has a source for ceiling paddle fans that are suitable for use in a church could you please provide a link?

I am thinking I will need something like a 60" fan or so.

TIA,
Jim

I really like commercial ceiling fans. They look pretty sleek but are not intrusive if similar in colour to the ceiling. I have seen them in many churches.

A good Canadian company is Canarm (http://www.canarm.com). A good search should find some U.S. sites.

Envirofan may be a good U.S. company.

Try WW Grainger, they have commercial pa, and all accessories.

(Grainger.com) is their website & on-line catalog

There's got to be a branch near you.

Canarm is a good product and Envirofan has been around for years.

If buying a residential type fan, just remember you get your money's worth. Hunter is a pretty good import fan. Ceiling fans aren't what they used to be.

Ya beat me to the punch on this one! Have a warehouse with two (2) 20+' "Big Ass Fans", but they were installed without any permits.

FD has a concern about deflection of sprinkler flow when fans are 'on'

BTW, looked like a small helicopter crashed thru the rood, rotor down. That's one big fan.

Hunted down the EC, gave him a fine, and requested he install something to shut fan off if sprinkler system is activated.
