To pursue a higher quality of life, ceiling fans are expected to have more functions and value-added features. However, it is also crucial to consider the safety and reliability features of the fan when selecting one.
Safety Policy by Panasonic
Preventive Measures For Safety
Panasonic aims to minimise and reduce accidents, thus Panasonic practices a safety policy to prevent any dangerous mishaps.
Cut-off Safety Switch
Problem
If there is any damage at either the shaft or the bolt due to improper installation or should malfunction occur, the fan motor may be detached from the pipe rod due to factors such as the wearing of shaft bolt, etc.
Preventive Measures
The safety wire helps to secure the fan motor with the ceiling hook to prevent the motor from falling when the fan motor detaches from the pipe rod.
If Motor stops
Stop using immediately and seek contact for qualified installers or authorized Panasonic service dealers for assistance.
Safety Blade Hook
Problem
The fan blade may detach from the fan motor should there be improper installation coupled with the fan blade wearing off, deformed blade shape or stronger wind blowing to the fan.
Preventive Measures
The broken blade will be visibly hanging with the aid of safety blade hook when the fan is functioning (as shown in the picture) as an indication.
If Blade breaks
Stop using immediately and seek contact for qualified installers or authorized Panasonic service dealers for assistance.
Safety Wire
Use the original pipe rod
Original pipe rod comes with the safety wire and safety cut-off switch in line with Panasonic safety policy. Also, do ensure the pipe rod is fully tightened to the motor shaft. (Bolt tightening torque is 800 - 1200 N.com)
Problem
Due to improper installation or should malfunction occur, the fan motor may detached from the pipe rod due to factors such as wearing of shaft bolt. etc.
Preventive Measures
The safety wire helps to secure the fan motor with the ceiling hook to prevent the motor from falling when fan motor detaches from the pipe rod.
If need shorter/longer pipe
Stop using immediately and seek contact for qualified installers or authorized Panasonic service dealers for assistance.
Wobbling Reduction Mechanism
Problem
Constant wobbling will cause the bolt, motor shaft and pipe rod to wear off which may cause breakage or falling of the fan to happen should the condition worsened.
Preventive Measures
The newly developed anti-wobbling structure helps to reduce wobbling between bolt, motor shaft and pipe rod. It can minimise the parts from wearing off and prevents them from detaching from the fan.
The bathroom, toilet and kitchen are places with a high concentration of contaminants. When these places are being used, ventilation fans should be operated to extract pollutants before they spread throughout the area.
