Rainman 5 Blade 54" Indoor / Outdoor Ceiling Fan - Light, Wall Control, and Blades Included
Beautiful Fan - beware of RC211 remote
I bought this fan in April for my screened porch. It's worth the money. Nothing at Lowes or Home Depot comes close. Beware of the Direct Lighting accessory recommendation. The RC211 is the wrong remote according to MinkaAire. I couldn't get it to work. After struggling with it, I contacted the company they said the RC212 is the proper one. The wall switch for the Rainman has 8 dip switches. The RC211 only has 4.

Great Outdoor Fan
We purchased three of these fans for our outdoor spaces. One for screened-in porch and two for outdoor pavilion. They are sturdy, quiet and beautiful. Everyone who sees them comments on how nice they are. I was surprised how quickly they arrived. Great product, great company to buy from.

Lighting Direct Lives Up to their Word
An excellent experience throughout the entire process. From the tons of pre-sale questions to the receipt of the fan to the installation, we are impressed. The shipment arrived timely because it needed to coincide with the installation of our patio. It arrived in plenty of time. Installation went easily and the fan is wonderful.
We plan to buy more fans and our first stop will be Lighting Direct.

Beautiful piece of equipment
This is an outstanding fan, very quiet with very little sound and movement when turned up all the way.
It comes with a 100 watt bulb, but the frosted glass dims it a bit.
I'm pretty handy and installed it easily in our beach house.
I can't stop staring at it, it's a work of art.
I'm not crazy about the wall control switch, it could be nicer for such a quality fan.

Installed this beauty in the mancave- Looks great with the industrial themed globe cage- (got the bronze finish) and runs totally silently, thus not interfering with the mancave games. Dimmable down to almost nightlite and bright enough for power tool lighting.
And when I turn it on, it rains. when I turn it off, the rain stops. Thanks Rainman!

Absolutely stunning !
I receive raves on this fan's unique beauty. The electrician said it was easy to install and was top quality. Ordering was easy and fan came within a couple days. I ordered the extension bar...but an extension comes with it...so unneeded expense. The glow of the amber light is subtle and warm. The fan is quiet-even on high speed.

Looks great but I have to say it doesn't move as much air around as I would have liked. I wish the blade pitch was greater since it is outdoors and needs to be a strong fan. But it does look good and fit in with the rest of our decor.

We couldn't be more pleased with the service and the fan. We purchased the MinkaAire Rainman fan for my grandson''s nursery. We rec'd it in a matter of days, and it looks beautiful with the nautical theme in the room!

This fan is beautiful. I installed it indoors and it looks just great. The fan is definitely well constructed and easy to install.
