Westlake Village Lighting & Accessories is proud to announce the addition of the highly coveted Casablanca line to our inventory. Casablanca Fan Company’s exclusive distribution rights makes this an exciting new addition to both our showroom and your living or work space!
Westlake Village Lighting & Accessories Featured Item:
From the new Casablanca inventory, our Featured Item of the Month is The Casablanca Stealth DC 59164. Its 54” blade span is designed for larger spaces, and each of the five blades is pitched at an optimal 14 degrees for maximum airflow. The Stealth’s walnut-finished blades are tipped with brushed nickel, giving a sophisticated and modern look. The frosted dome lamp allows for soft, yet ample lighting to pleasantly brighten your space without any harsh glares.
Equipped with their patented Direct Drive motor, the Stealth houses Casablanca’s quietest motor yet. A DC motor is ideal, as they require less energy consumption and can yield at least 70% in savings over an AC motor. At the Stealth’s highest speed, about 6,566 cfm (cubic feet of air per minute) flows through the room, rendering its airflow efficiency at 73 cfm/watt. In less technical terms, this translates to greater efficiency airflow throughout your space while using less energy. Choose from six different speeds which are also available in the fan’s reverse setting, allowing you to control for downdraft mode during warmer months and updraft mode in cooler weather. Both the high-end motor as well as the included LED light kit are Energy Star Certified, providing you increased energy savings and a longer product lifespan.
The Casablanca Fan’s Unique History
Casablanca fans are renowned for their innovative designs and aesthetics. Founder “Burton A. Burton” was as interesting a character as his name suggests. An eclectic entrepreneur with a fascination for antique and vintage items, Burton loved tinkering on old fans and redesigning ways in which to power them. In 1974, he released his first Casablanca, a belt-driven fan intended for commercial use. His timing could not have been more impeccable, as the mid-70s energy crisis encouraged an upsurge in demand for fans.
Despite fierce competition, Burton and his Casablanca brand remained a distinguished commodity, due to his company vision and a proclivity for the unconventional. Burton believed each fan to be a work of art and a unique piece of furniture in itself, rather than a simple energy-saving appliance. He refused to sacrifice the quality and character of his Casablanca line and thus stayed out of the price wars engaged by cheaper competitors.
Burton’s unfailing stance, passion for his work, and eclectic creativity truly set the tone for the Casablanca legacy. The Casablanca Fan Company remains an unparalleled name in the industry, and a highly desirable piece to own.
Form + Function = Art that Works
The Casablanca Fan Company takes pride in their heritage, and continues Burton’s vision of creating a functional piece of art in every fan they design. The Casablanca crew goes to great lengths to ensure only the best is delivered to their customers. Each component of the fan is designed, crafted, and engineered in-house by Casablanca, down to the plates, motor and motor housings. Further, each prototype is tested for function and aesthetics before the design is finalized and produced. Their designers experience the prototype in their own space; if its initial charm is lost between paper and prototype, the idea is scrapped and the process begins again.
Casablanca fans not only afford customers a beautiful masterpiece to own, they are incredible energy-savers as well. Even on their highest setting, a Casablanca fan consumes only as much energy as a 100 watt lightbulb. Their quiet yet powerful motors yield 50x less energy than an air conditioner uses, and each fan blade is pitched at just the right angle to provide maximum airflow on any of the speed settings.
The Casablanca Fan Company also firmly believes in retaining the human element in their production. The physical interaction that comes from the intricate craftsmanship of the raw materials only contributes to each fan’s unique personality unlike an automated machine ever could. The care and compassion poured into the design speaks to the high quality and standards put forth by Burton himself.
