New look Vogue set to impress
July 14, 2009

Fantech’s Vogue series of ceiling/wall mounted fans has been redesigned with a new modern look and easy to use features. While the current Vogue series is attractive and extremely functional, we are always on the look-out for ways to improve the design and efficiency of our products.

Reducing production costs while continuously improving quality has always been a priority with the Fantech range, so we have chosen to manufacture the fan housing from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic rather than galvanised steel. ABS plastic has a good balance of tensile strength, impact and abrasion resistance and surface hardness.

Plastic can be moulded to any shape or size to maximise the efficiency of its design. The injection moulding process has enabled us to create a superior smooth, aerodynamic inlet bell mouth for minimum noise and maximum airflow output. Plastic can also be recycled to help minimise its impact on the environment.

The change in manufacture process has provided an opportunity to review the appearance of the fan and this has resulted in a more stylish ivory coloured grille. The smooth finish of the new grille means it can be easily cleaned while installed, or readily removed by taking out the screw and giving the grille a simple twist and pull.

A prime consideration in the design of the new Vogue series was to make the fan simple and quick to install. In the past you had to undo a number of screws to remove the grille and then fix the unit to wood in the ceiling or wall. Now the grille can be easily removed, and quick fitting swing locks have been added to keep the fan in place in suspended ceilings or plasterboard walls and ceilings, while extra holes are provided for fixing to brick or concrete.

The new Vogue series features an aerodynamic axial flow fan driven by an enclosed motor suitable for 200-240V single-phase 50Hz electrical supply.

The Vogue fan has passed testing for the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM), ElectroMagnetic Compliance (EMC) and has been approved for safety to Australian Standards. The housing is fire retardant and the grille/guard complies with regulations concerning its safety features and strength.

Like its predecessor, the new Vogue series can be mounted at any angle in wall or ceilings and can be used as an exhaust or supply fan. Standard sized ducting can be easily fitted using the optional duct adaptor. The fan is pre-wired with a lead and three-pin plug. Two-speed and variable speed control switches can also be used with the Vogue.

The new series will be available in three sizes – 200, 250 and 300mm diameter.

Fantech will continue to offer the existing Ring Plate should an all metal fan be required.
