Where to Find the World’s Most Durable Outdoor Ceiling Fan

Homes, restaurants, and hotels should be oases of comfort. But when those little slices of heaven are in harsh coastal environments, the outdoor spaces must endure extreme winds, rain, heat, and salt exposure. What features should you consider when selecting an outdoor fan for a coastal environment? 

Outdoor ceiling fans should be designed to withstand the unforgiving rigors of Mother Nature, allowing people to fully enjoy their favorite outdoor spaces any time of the year.

But not all ceiling fans—outdoor, especially—are created equal. While some may struggle under extreme weather conditions, others are built to endure for years. How do you find an efficient, stylish outdoor ceiling fan that shines in the best weather while standing strong through the worst?

The Qualities of a Durable Ceiling Fan (Outdoor)

When shopping for the best of the best outdoor ceiling fans, look for outstanding quality and performance in the following areas:

Weather-Resistant Materials

Look for fans crafted with “marine grade” materials that can withstand saltwater-heavy environments. We recommend airfoils made of UV-resistant hybrid resin composite material and stainless steel parts.

Corrosion Proof

Salt spray can wreak havoc on electronics in coastal areas. Opt for fans with sealed electronics and stainless steel hardware to ensure long-lasting performance.

Wind Performance

A durable outdoor ceiling fan should handle high winds without wobbling or incurring damage. Insist on features like airfoil blades and stabilizing mechanisms.

Safety Centered

Safety should always be a top concern, so look for outdoor ceiling fans that come with added safety features that ensure the fixture doesn’t cause injuries in the event of flying debris or other hazards.

Water Resistance

An Ingress Protection (IP) rating indicates how well a fan is sealed against dust and water. The first number represents the level of protection against solid materials like dust and dirt, with a maximum of 6. The second number represents protection against liquids and tops out at 9. For outdoor use, an IP rating of 44 or higher is the recommended minimum, but you can get an industry-best rating of 56 with Big Ass Fans’ Haiku® Coastal model.
