The Airlift by Monte Carlo offers a unique perspective of the ceiling fan as a design element in any room. The opaque fan blades offer great circulation when the fan is in motion. When still, the blades hang vertically around the light fixture to create a chandelier-like effect sure to brighten any room.
The Airlift naturally raises and lowers the fan blades itself in a quick, quiet motion, employing the centripetal force of the spinning motion to raise the blades. When fully extended, the blades eventually reach a 44-inch span. When the fan is turned off, the eight blades again realign themselves vertically around the light. Using the fan is as easy as any other, simply turning it on or off with the remote kit or wall switch.
The Airlift features a stylish stainless steel housing that will compliment or update any room design with a touch of modernism. The blades are lightweight, easy to clean, and feature a frosted ABS finish that light up against the halogen lamp inside. The hanging blades may hang too low in some rooms, but at just over two feet from the ceiling, the Airlift shouldn’t interfere in most modern rooms.
Monte Carlo does not offer the Airlift in finishes other than stainless, but has equipped the fan with the option to fit dynamic uplight above the fan as well as some different remote and switch options. All of this is included with the fan. The MSRP for the airlift is around $700, making it a pricier, but unique addition to any space.
