Five-city nationwide tour brings expert designer and crew to refresh an uninspiring space with the muse of a sleek Hunter fan

August 3, 2017 – Memphis, TN – Hunter Fan Company, the leading manufacturer of ceiling fans, improving home comfort for over 100 yearscrosses off the first stop on the brand’s five-city Huntervention Tour, and hits the road en route to the residence of the next deserving homeowner.

ELEVATE Design Collective Unveils Signature Pantone Color in Custom Urban Loft during New York Design Week

NEW YORK (May 18, 2016) – On Tuesday, May 17 the ELEVATE Design Collective, a first-of-its-kind alliance of six industry-leading home design brands, hosted an exclusive event to unveil the ELEVATE custom Pantone color in a distinct urban loft. Designed by interior designer Jennifer Wagner Schmidt in collaboration with the ELEVATE Design Collective brand designers, the loft showcased custom products from Delta Faucet Company, Formica Corporation, Hunter Fan, JELD-WEN®, KitchenAid® and Schlage®, each touting the new signature ELEVATE PANTONE® Color: Single Malt.

Aiming for a modern, stylish color that is equally soft and calming, the brands’ lead designers worked collaboratively with the Pantone Color Institute™ to create a rich, neutral hue to set the tone rather than dominate the room. Blurring the line between natural and man-made, the Single Malt color boasts a distinctive warm and rustic shade to evoke the essence of simple indulgences like cognac, whiskey and cigars as well as the aromatic notes of leather and coffee.

Each brand incorporated the Single Malt color into a unique selection of products resulting in a suite of signature accents to outfit the ELEVATE urban loft space. Schmidt drew inspiration from Scandinavian designs with clean whites, sharp blacks and a mix of modern and organic lines, textures and materials. Mary Jo Peterson, an interior designer with kitchen design expertise, collaborated with Schmidt to ensure the overall aesthetic translated into a supremely functional kitchen.

Schmidt, owner of JWS Interiors said, ―I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with a group of such innovative brands to shake up the design space and transform home accents—from faucets, kitchen appliances and countertops to door hardware, doors and fans—into design statements. My vision for the loft was to use the accent pieces as the starting point and really allow that to drive the color story while keeping the overall aesthetic chic, timeless and luxurious.

In the heart of the home, the open concept kitchen features striking countertops made of modern and sophisticated large-scale 180fx® by Formica Group laminate in a custom Bourbon Trail marble design. KitchenAid appliances including the 36‖ Multi-Door Freestanding Refrigerator, Single Wall Oven with Even-Heat™ True Convection and 44 dBA dishwasher—all in black stainless—provided smart features and unmatched performance. Rounding out the design, the Delta® Trinsic® Pro faucet in a brushed steel finish delivers the flexibility and industrial style of a professional chef’s faucet and the convenience of Touch2O® Technology, which turns the faucet on or off with just a touch. The Delta Ara® Collection introduced a contemporary bathroom design with angular silhouettes found in the faucet and showerhead.

Peterson, owner of Mary Jo Peterson, Inc. said, ―With the open concept layout, creating supreme functionality in a kitchen fit for a chef while maintaining a warm and inviting design aesthetic was
paramount for the loft design. Each brand customized a selection of its top products to bring together the ultimate in form and function in the space.

The living room features the beautifully-crafted Ronan ceiling fan while the bedrooms showcase the contemporary Sentinel and the modern Apple HomeKit Symphony smart fans—all three engineered to perform and designed to inspire by Hunter Fan. Creating a cohesive feel, each room was outfitted with doors from the JELD-WEN MODA™ Door Collection, including a custom three-panel barn door leading to the kitchen pantry. Each interior door was then outfitted with Schlage’s decorative Northbrook Lever with Upland rose in Matte Black to carry the design theme in every detail throughout the home.

Additional product sponsors that contributed to the ELEVATE Design Collective loft include Maxton™ and Cornell™ Maple cabinets from KraftMaid, Italian Alps ceramic wall tile from Daltile, a Brisbane Collection sink from Oliveri and Ultra Pure White interior paint from Behr. The loft also features a wireless multi-room audio system with S2 and S2R speakers from Polk Audio’s Omni Collection.

Anchored in design trends from top industry designers, the ELEVATE Design Collective creates a prominent voice for style-oriented brands in the interior design space.

Together, the ELEVATE Design Collective will showcase the power of utilizing home accents to create a cohesive and unique design aesthetic.

The vision to create the ELEVATE Design Collective began with Schlage, a brand of Allegion that has created stylish, innovative door hardware products for more than 95 years. Schlage recognized the opportunity to bring like-minded, home accent brands together to make a larger contribution to the interior design industry and educate influencers and consumers alike on the latest styles and trends in home design.

“We are thrilled to kick off year one of the ELEVATE Design Collective and feel a strong alliance with each brand in our effort to bring home accents to the forefront of the design and style conversation,” said Tamara Douce, influencer marketing manager, Schlage. “A home’s style is created and defined in the details. Well-chosen pops of color, texture, placement and functionality make a home reflective of the homeowners’ personal taste. It is our goal to empower interior designers, architects and remodelers to feel confident in making those design choices.”

The ELEVATE Design Collective will be supported with a dedicated microsite offering a behind-the-scenes look at the NYC urban loft project, and the brand designers’ inspiration and insight into the creation of the custom ELEVATE Pantone color.

Hunter-Industrial-Fan-Titan-big-hvls-fan

Hunter Fan Company Enters the Industrial Fan Market

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Jan. 25, 2016)– After over 100 years in the ceiling fan industry, Hunter Fan Company is expanding into the industrial and commercial market launching a new division of their business, Hunter Industrial. The debut product from Hunter is the TITAN Industrial Fan, a high volume low speed fan, which debuted this January at the 2016 AHR TradeShow in Orlando, FL. The TITAN fan comes in 5 different sizes varying from a 14 foot blade span to a 24 foot blade span. With a diameter of 288 inches, the TITAN 24 is the largest operating fan ever to have been displayed at the AHR Expo.

Hunter created the TITAN fan with a commitment to delivering the most efficient total cost of ownership. The TITAN Industrial Fan offers a competitive edge when it comes to efficiency (CFM/watt), installation cost, weight, and maintenance. Using less horsepower, the TITAN efficiently delivers equal or better output than the competition. Hunter’s proprietary installation methodology allows for quick and harnessed electrical connections, resulting in a faster and less expensive installation process.

“Here at Hunter, we are experts at ceiling fans. We invented the first ceiling fans in the late 1800’s and are now bringing a superior product to the industrial market,” said CEO of Hunter John Alexander. “Our strong expertise and track record for innovation should allow our brand to perform well in the industrial and commercial segments.”

The TITAN’s Direct Drive ECM (electronically-commuted motor) allows for a more efficient, lightweight product. Because it’s 50% lighter than the competitor products, it can be lifted by just one installer with no additional lift equipment required. The lubricated bearings are “lubricated for life”, meaning the fan requires less maintenance and has a longer life. It’s touch screen user interface allows users to integrate to the their Building Management System (BMS) through industry-standard protocols. The TITAN’s innovative design also features fewer fan blades, generating airflow with better aerodynamics.

“Our direct drive industrial fans were designed with the Hunter legacy in mind,” said Jeff Bredeson, General Manager of Hunter Industrial. “The TITAN will outperform all others and may outlast the buildings they are installed in.”

The TITAN Industrial Fan will be available for purchase at the AHR Expo with first deliveries occurring in April 2016.

About Hunter Industrial

The Hunter legacy is not only about quality – it’s about longevity. We invented the ceiling fan. We build fans that last, fans that are designed as fans (not fans based on repurposed concepts like other big fans on the market). We design our fans with every person in the process in mind – from the installer to the owner. We hear from our customers how our fans are outlasting the homes they were installed in decades ago, and Hunter Industrial will be no different. After all, we have the legacy of our name to live up to.

Users can create custom Scenes with other HomeKit-enabled products to automatically turn on the fan’s light, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat to the desired temperature in just one step.

Hunter Fan Company Blows Away Competition with Wi-Fi® Enabled, Apple HomeKit Enabled Ceiling Fans

January 4, 2016 – Memphis, TN – Hunter Fan Company, the leading manufacturer of ceiling fans, enters the connected home space by debuting two Wi-Fi enabled fans at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Named Symphony and Signal, the fans boast support for Apple HomeKit technology and seamlessly interact with other HomeKit-enabled products to create an automated suite of comfort, security and energy efficiency.

“Our ceaseless innovation is why Hunter Fan is the industry leader, and these new Wi-Fi enabled fans, with added support for Apple HomeKit, are a testament to our heritage of progress and originality,” said Hunter Fan CEO John Alexander. “They’re beautiful, affordable, high quality pieces of decor that bring state-of-the-art Wi-Fi technology where it might not be expected: the ceiling fan. As we celebrate 130 years, we have several exciting developments to share with our customers, and are proud to kick off 2016 at CES with Symphony and Signal.”

Apple HomeKit technology requires iOS 8.1 or later and allows users to control each fan – or a group of fans – using Siri on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple Watch. Users can also create custom scenes with other HomeKit-enabled products: for example, one could create a scene to automatically turn on the fan’s light, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat to the desired temperature in just one step. Users can also set up HomeKit-enabled products to work together based on triggers, such as having the fan’s light turn on the moment the fire alarm detects smoke. HomeKit technology provides advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the fan and the iOS device.

Symphony has a graceful, modern design and comes in fresh white, while Signal, with its satin nickel housing and reversible wood-finished blades, is a contemporary blend of sleek design and classic finishes.

Both fans are available spring 2016 at: HunterFan.com; Amazon.com; Build.com; BestBuy.com; HomeDepot.com; Lowes.com; Menards.com; and in lighting showrooms nationwide.

Joining the connected home space was a natural extension of Hunter Fan’s business, and the company is exploring various opportunities for Wi-Fi enabled designs. “When we first had cameras on our iPhones, we didn’t immediately envision the ability to deposit checks with them. Similarly, we know that these fans enhance energy efficiency, home security and convenience, but we believe we’ve just scratched the surface of their full potential,” says Hunter Chief Marketing Officer John Neilson.

Symphony and Signal were developed in collaboration with industry leaders Ayla Networks and Marvell Technology Group Ltd., which will feature the fans in their respective displays at CES. For more information, please visit HunterFan.com.
