An enclosed ceiling fan is a fan with completely or partially enclosed blades. These fans, also referred to as caged fans, can be used in commercial, industrial and residential settings. Cages, commonly referred to as grills or nets, are made from metal, wood or plastic.
Enclosed, ceiling-mounted stationary fans are commonly used in industrial settings to increase air circulation and reduce energy costs. In commercial settings, such as restaurants, art galleries or office buildings, enclosed ceiling fans can be used to accentuate decor and increase air circulation while operating at a very low noise level. Enclosed ceiling fans for homes are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors to suit any decor.
