Exploring Different Types of Ceiling Fans: Function to Form

Can you imagine surviving the Indian summer without a fan over your head? It is becoming increasingly difficult, even in India, to get by in the winter months without seeking respite under the cool breeze of a fan, let alone the warmer months.

The fact of the matter is that ceiling fans are the most widely adopted cooling appliance. In a country where air conditioners are an expensive proposition for cooling needs, & air coolers not able to cool the room in humid areas, fans remain to serve as the quintessential machine for quick relief & comfort, via air circulation.

Ceiling fans have been a staple in homes and commercial spaces for decades, providing comfort, airflow, and even a touch of style to the environments they grace. At Nex, we’ve been focused on crafting performance oriented beautifully designed fans, keeping your core needs in mind.

Elevating Comfort: Exploring the World of Innovative Fans

As technology continues to evolve, so do our options for a better living. At Nex, we understand the significance of a comfortable living environment, and that's why we're delving into the exciting realm of fan innovation.

Silent Ceiling Fans: Eliminating Disturbances

Imagine a fan that keeps you cool without a whisper of noise – that's the essence of silent fans. These fans utilise innovative engineering and aerodynamics to provide a gentle breeze that won't disrupt the calmness of your space. Whether you're enjoying a quiet evening at home or focusing on your work, our range of ‘SharqFin™ Low noise design’ Silent Ceiling Fans ensure that you're surrounded by a serene atmosphere, allowing you to unwind without any disturbances.

Our SharqFin™ technology is a bio-inspired innovation that mimics the low drag property of an actual Shark fin, & integrated into an innovative aerofoil ABS blade design, to reduce drag, improve efficiency, and minimise noise without compromising on speed. This low noise design allows the blade to move more air at higher RPMs (rotations per minute) maintaining stability & rigidity.

BLDC Ceiling Fans: Pioneering Efficiency

Efficiency is at the heart of modern living, and BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) motor fans take it to the next level. These fans are not just about moving air; they're designed to maximise energy utilisation, consuming significantly less power than traditional fans. The result? Lower energy bills and reduced carbon footprint. This is what led us to devising PeakTorq™ BLDC, a power efficient Brushless DC motor that makes for a range of efficient Nex BLDC fans. It has 100% copper winding that helps deliver high torque and power, making it less likely to encounter issues, whilst being extensively energy efficient.

With Nex's range of BLDC Ceiling Fans, you're not only staying cool but also making an eco-conscious choice.

Anti-Dust Ceiling Fans: Breathing Easier

Dust can quickly turn your pristine living space into a daily cleaning battle. At Nex, we believe that a breath of fresh air is essential, and our Anti-Dust Ceiling Fans are here to make it a reality. Their ‘Easy Clean’ dust resistant metallic lacquer or PU coating, ensures ease of cleaning the fan blades with just one swipe! Equipped with specially designed blades, these fans actively repel dust, pollen, and pollutants, ensuring that you enjoy fresher air while minimising cleaning efforts.

Designer Ceiling Fans: Elegance in Motion

A fan isn't just a cooling device; it's an integral part of your interior design. Designer Ceiling Fans from Nex blend form and function seamlessly, adding a touch of elegance to your spaces. The Nex range is designed as if it is ‘Sculpted by Air’ flowing over its blades, cuts, and corners. Static Motion which is another key design tenet, adds to the dynamism of the static fan, it elevates elegance with its fluidic precision.

Additionally, we added customisation with adjustable downrod covers, specially designed keeping in mind varying ceiling heights. To enhance the look further, even the colours were particularly varied to make sure the range suits varied preferences and aesthetics, of modern day home interiors.

Smart Ceiling Fans: Intelligence at Your Fingertips

Smart Ceiling Fans are the epitome of convenience, allowing you to control your comfort with a tap of a button, either on your phone app or remote. We have developed an in-house NEX Smart connect mobile app that can connect to our Wi-Fi enabled IoT fan. You can operate this fan using the Nex Mobile app, remotely from anywhere with a WiFi connection. It has built in features like Breeze mode, Sleep mode, Timer, & Precise Speed control. Our IoT fans are also compatible with personal assistants like Amazon Alexa & Google Home platforms / devices. So you can switch on the fan, & set a certain speed setting, even before you reach home from a long day at work.

Our ‘Point Anywhere’ RF remote technology allows users to control devices without the need for a direct line of sight. RF signals are able to pass through solid objects, unlike infrared (IR) signals, which require a clear line of sight. It becomes exceedingly simple to adjust fan speed, timers, and other operational modes with the ‘Point Anywhere’ remote. At Nex, we bring you smart fans that keep pace with your modern lifestyle, giving you complete control over your environment.

We believe that staying cool shouldn't come at the expense of style or sustainability.

Are 3 blades or 4 blade fans better?

The three-blade fan has fewer blades, providing lesser air movement. However, due to its compactness, it also consumes less power and emits less noise. These fans are optimum for small to mid-sized spaces.

Four-blades provide more airflow, but make slightly higher noise, and consume more power in comparison. They're ideal for larger spaces though.
