Strike Up the Fans with Casablanca

Fun Fact:  “ There are no reports of a fan wobbling itself off the ceiling and falling.”* Contrary to popular belief, a fan’s wobble does not mean the fan is mounted insecurely; wobbling is the result of fan blades being out of weight-alignment with each other and imbalanced.  –

Although it may not pose a safety hazard (as long as no light kit is attached), a wobbly fan is something to avoid.   A few basic elements will ensure that your ceiling fan is equipped with top quality parts to run smoothly and grace the ceiling in style. Get the facts to find the ultimate in value and energy-saving efficiency.

Traditionalist or new wave, a fan from Casablanca is the ultimate in style, value and performance.  Classic, elegant concepts, whimsical or futuristic motifs, each Casablanca ceiling fan holds the time honored traditions of the past and innovative upgrades for the future. When you invest in a Casablanca, you invest in value.

Every fan from Casablanca embodies exquisite craftsmanship from the fine and durable finish right down to the bearings in the motor.  Invest in Casablanca; invest in value.
