For installation of a ceiling fan between floors leaves little choice for this task since it cannot be accessed easily from above or below the ceiling since the upper floor is directly above the ceiling box. Cutting a hole in the floor or knocking out the ceiling is not prudent just to place blocking above a ceiling box. Medallions are available but the added expense, labor and time can be prohibitive, especially if the medallion is painted to match the ceiling. The brace type of products that are sold today are an alternative though they work better in theory than in practice as the old ceiling box needs to be removed before they can be installed. Home Depot has a web page devoted to this process which they claim can take ½ a day to complete.
Acoustic ceiling tiles can be used to fix up a room fast. You can avoid doing a lot of construction by simply hanging a grid from a bad looking ceiling and hanging some acoustic ceiling tiles. The room will instantly look newer and at a fraction of what you would likely pay to actually have the old ceiling restored or updated in appearance. For your ceiling needs, only you will be able to tell if you need acoustic ceiling tiles. Consider them, though, if you want to cut down on sound between floors of your home or business without spending a lot of money on the renovation. Acoustic ceiling tiles are easy to replace, cheap to maintain, and will allow you to paint the ceiling to match the rest of the room. When it comes time for your new ceiling, look into acoustic ceiling tiles and you may be surprised at how great your new look will be without spending a lot.
This testing revealed that ordinary thermoplastic ceiling boxes that are reinforced in this manner are capable of sustaining loads that are factors above the requirements of NEC (314.27D & 422.18). These NEC building codes apply to the installation of ceiling fans and fan-rated ceiling boxes. Another added feature is that this product installs in only 2 minute's or less with common hand tools and allows the installation of a ceiling fan to be accomplished in less than an hour from start to finish. If the Westinghouse fans were to be used with this product it could be done in 17 minutes or less! The product can also be also used with metal boxes after 2 holes have been drilled in the ceiling box.
