The installation instructions for many of the fans available today show a metal type box that has screws going through the box and into blocking above the box. This is not what is installed in most of the newer construction homes which use the labor saving nail-on products. As a general rule builders and contractors do not provide blocking above the ceiling box with a nail-on product as the added material & labor is not cost effective. The average nail-on plastic ceiling box is rated for only supporting a 35 pound static load. They are also not fan-rated. This requires that the ceiling box be replaced with a fan-rated box before the installation of a ceiling fan. Fan-rated boxes are capable of holding 70 pound loads and are rated for this application. This is easier said than done! The nail-on products do not lend themselves to be reinforced easily since labor savings have also been applied to the construction of homes themselves. In many circumstance the average home does not have an attic, only a narrow crawl space between the trusses is provided. This combined with blow-in insulation makes the location of the ceiling box difficult if not impossible when a fan is to be hung on an upper floor.
You need to see it to believe it: there are ceiling fans in all shapes and sizes, suitable for any room you can imagine. There are even those suited for children rooms like the kid ceiling fan, with slower spinning speeds and flexible ceiling fan blades, and rugged enough to resist whatever your kids might throw at it. And then you have those with exotic blade shapes and patterns that turn your house into a relaxing and magical resting place, the perfect place for you return to after a stressful working day. Whatever your choice is, you'll definitely benefit with some ceiling fans hanging from your ceiling.
Using the Black Ceiling. That pe of ceilings are easily attainable by either paneling them with black material or by using black wallpaper or paint. Black ceiling tiles are also a good option for attaining a ceiling. Nightclubs and bars use black ceiling tiles since they bring about a shine and glaze to them. Auditoriums and theatre halls have special acoustic ceiling black tiles, which not only helps in solving the light reflection issue but also the noise issue. The tiles in such places have special sound proofing features and have a blunt finish so that they do not have a shiny surface for the light to bounce off them. Modern homes with home theatre rooms or a special TV room also can implement the ceiling with a simple coat of black paint. This can prove to be an arduous job but the result is marvelous in terms of TV viewing. Commercial kitchens too can implement the this ceiling by using black paint, thus maintenance of these kitchen ceilings is possible in a very inexpensive way.
