What makes ‘Low Noise’ Plastic Fan Blades worth Considering

Choosing the right fan blade for your high-speed ceiling fan is the same as choosing the right wheels for a car. While all wheels fundamentally would make the car move, but choosing the right fit for the car’s requirement would help optimize its performance. An off-roading tire is required if the car is meant for rough terrains, or a heavily grooved tire is required if it drives in frequent rains. Similarly, choosing the right fan blade as per your need helps optimize the fan’s performance and comfort to make it the right fit for you.

There are majorly only two types of fan blades that are available today – Plastic and metal fan blades.

To put you at ease, both cool you just as well. In fact, the air flow does not depend on the material of the blade at all. It depends on the length and profile of the blade, the torque of the motor, and the number of rotations per minute.

At Nex, we have pioneered our SharqFinTM Low Noise plastic fan blades to give you the best performance with 20% higher air thrust*.

So, what makes plastic ceiling fan blades different than metal blades and why should you consider them?

The Advantages of Plastic Ceiling Fan Blades

Plastic ceiling fan blades have a lot going for them, especially when installed on high-speed ceiling fans. Here are a few advantages one simply cannot ignore.

  • Noise: While plastic blades generally have a lower noise profile than metal blades, we have taken this to a whole new level at Nex. We have innovated smart ceiling fans (https://nexlife.in/fans/ceiling-fans/) with Aerofoil blades with our patented SharqFinTM technology, where we have added wing tips that help reduce the air drag, just like the fins of a shark help reduce the drag on its body. This helps create a serene low-nice atmosphere for an elevated comfort.
  • Bending: When the user cleans the metal fan blades of the ceiling fans installed in their homes, it has a chance of resulting in bending over time. But this is not a problem for Nex ceiling fan’s plastic blades. They maintain their shape because of their construct.
  • Safety: Our ceiling fan blades feature smooth plastic tips designed to prioritize safety, ensuring that accidental contact will not result in any uneventful harm.
  • Design Flexibility: Plastic can be shaped, sized, and curved exactly as required. This means that it can be engineered in over thousand profiles to bring the best output from the motor, giving you an elevated sense of comfort. At Nex, we have used this aspect of the blade with AeirologyTM to generate 20% higher thrust*.
  • Energy Efficiency: Thanks to the streamlined profile of our plastic blade fans, they effortlessly glide through the air, optimizing energy efficiency and helping you save on power consumption. This makes the plastic fan blade’s price justifiable.
  • Easy Maintenance: In humid environments like the kitchen or the bathroom, a metal blade is not advisable. Metal can easily catch corrosion while plastic is corrosion resistant. Additionally, plastic fan blades also stand strong through the test of time without bending, denting, or warping, even when it is a 1200 mm ceiling fan (https://nexlife.in/fans/ceiling-fans/). This gives your ceiling fan a longer life. Even when it comes to cleaning the fan, a simple cotton cloth does the job.
  • Colour customisation: Picking the right colour of your fan’s plastic blade to blend into the décor of your space is essential. Plastic blades are easy to customise and usually come with a wider range of colour options to choose from.
  • Conclusion

    Nex’s SharqFinTM Low Noise Plastic Blades is the latest ceiling fan (https://nexlife.in/fans/ceiling-fans/) revolution. We have managed to re-engineer the plastic blade with ‘SharFin’ tips to make them even more stable and rigid so that their air thrust goes beyond anything like you have ever seen, while being noiseless. It truly feels like a natural breeze brushing against your skin because you can never hear the fan in the room. Its stunning design and colours, paired with Aeirology that gives 20% higher air thrust*, come together to elevate your experience like never before.


    What are plastic fan blades made of?

    Plastic fan blades are typically made of polypropylene (PP), a type of synthetic resin that is lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion. Other common plastics used for fan blades include ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) and nylon. At Nex, we use the best materials for a performance unlike any other.

    Which fan blade gives more air?

    A fan blade with a larger span (the distance from one end of the blade to the other) will move more air than a fan blade with a smaller span. The number of blades does not matter as much as the span. However, a fan with fewer blades will generally be more efficient and quieter.
