Hunter Fan Company Out-Toughs the Elements with New WeatherMax® Collection of Wet-Rated Outdoor Fans

May 19, 2020— Memphis, TN – Hunter Fan Company, the leading manufacturer of ceiling fans, is proud to officially announce their WeatherMax® Collection. Specifically designed for consumers seeking the best wet-rated ceiling fans, WeatherMax fans were engineered for the elements and tested extensively to ensure top-of-the-line durability.  Hunter’s WeatherMax ceiling fans are built strong to provide years of service in nearly every environment and their wet-rated, salt-air resistant and corrosion-resistant innovations showcase the true endurance of the collection, allowing them to be installed everywhere from open air pergolas to seaside porches.  

Focusing on the biggest concerns for homeowners and outdoor installations, the design and engineering teams at Hunter Fan Company collaborated closely to create a fan collection that would be wet rated, corrosion resistant and salt-air resistant, while also maintaining its shape. The fans’ wet rating includes a number of different measures which allow the fan to be directly exposed to the elements and humidity. When designing the precision blades, the designers worked with an aerodynamics expert that helped them determine the exact blade shape necessary for the install locations and elements. Stronger and more durable premium materials were then used to ensure that they continue to look great while also maintaining the correct pitch and shape to provide maximum airflow. Tough structural materials like specialized polymers and stainless-steel components were also incorporated to help the housing and hardware avoid rust caused by corrosive salt air and water exposure. Each piece in the collection is then extensively tested by a team of engineers at Hunter headquarters to ensure unmatched durability. Jets of water and weeks of salt-spray tests prove that specialized internal components help protect the wiring and technology from water and other damage.

This unique combination of features and advances ensure that no matter where a WeatherMax® fan is installed, it will maintain its structural, functional and aesthetic integrity, something that is integral to the Hunter brand. The collection also boasts Hunter’s latest exclusive product standard, the Hunter SureSpeed® Guarantee, which provides unparalleled air velocity. With all of these elements combined, it’s no wonder that the WeatherMax collection provides performance and features like no other on the market today.

“We constantly look for new ways to solve persistent problems for our consumers. For our outdoor fan customers who relentlessly battle replacing fixtures and furniture, these features and new collection provide an eloquent solution to a major problem,” said Hunter CEO, John Alexander. “We are continuously proud of the dedication from our team members and are fully committed to building better fans for our customers that blend both our love for design and dedication to technological advancement.”

The features and innovations in the WeatherMax® collection truly showcase Hunter’s brand leadership and differentiation in both the industry and outdoor ceiling fan space.  Their passion for providing performance products, encapsulating new design trends and creating new technology for their products is evident with each new release. From more coastal options to contemporary to ultra-modern, the new designs in the collection were created to match a number of customer preferences and styles. The collection includes the ultra-modern Havoc, the simplistic Trimaran, the sophisticated Oceana and the lantern-inspired Searow which range from $249.99 to $399 and are available in 10 different finish combinations.
