National Geographic : 1983 Apr
Take the world's finest fans for as tough a test spin as you would an exotic automobile. From torque to tail-end contours, you expect a high performance automobile to deliver on its promise of excellence. You should expect the same from a superior ceiling fan. And, of all the ceiling fans in the world, none stands up to scrutiny as well as a CasaBlanca.® Versatility of speed Whereas most fans limit speed adjustment to two or three speeds, CasaBlanca fans feature a variable speed control device. This device allows you to fine tune your fan's speed according to such factors as room size and shape, air flow patterns,and, most importantly, individual comfort. Listen closely for nothing The uncommon comfort of totally silent operation is also yours with CasaBlanca. With respect to noise, the downfall of many variable speed fans is a "phase" or "chopped" control of incoming electrical current. This turns the motor on and off 120 times per second, causing a relentless, buzzing vibration. CasaBlanca's unique Slumber Quiet TM System eliminates this problem by electronically smoothing the power flow to the motor. Other fans claim quiet operation, but only CasaBlanca offers total silence. The moving beauty of fine hardwood blades CasaBlanca accepts nothing other than Grade A wood for its renowned blade veneers. The judicious selection of this premium wood is made by Mr. Paul © CasaBlanca Fan Company, 1983 Mooney, a wood grader by profession for more than 50 years. As a final touch of finesse, CasaBlanca blades are weighed electronically and matched for compatibility of balance and finish. The finery of hand-cut crystal Choosing your crystal lamp shades is an added pleasure in selecting a CasaBlanca. These imported lead crystal shades are flawlessly blown, then hand crafted in a wide array of inspired CasaBlanca designs. Engineered for owner installation No other ceiling fan in the world mounts as easily and effi ciently as a CasaBlanca. Its Hang TruTMMounting System allows direct attachment to existing ceiling wiring boxes, saving you the added cost of an electrician. A self-centering mounting ball in the system permits installation on inclined ceiling surfaces up to 45? And, to further facilitate hanging, the lifting weight of a CasaBlanca fan can be as low as 15 lbs.
