How to Hang your Wall Fan

Once you have received your beautiful hand-painted folding wall fan, just how do you go about hanging it on the wall? Well, you can use any method that you would normally use to hang a normal picture or painting, and in addition you can simply use double-sided tape to secure the fan to the wall. We'll give you some easy step by step instructions here to make things go smoothly!

When you receive your fan, remove all packaging materials and hold it in front of you with the single pivot screw towards the bottom of the fan. Now you can easily unfold the fan by twisting the bamboo slats in a clockwise direction. The fan should easily open to it's full width of 60 inches (40 inches for our smaller sized fans). There is never any need to remove the fan pivot screw--all fans open easily in a clockwise direction.

One of the most popular methods used to hang the wall fan is to use double sided tape, readily available from most discount stores. Our wall fans are all made from very strong Thai bamboo, which has the added benefit of being light. Double sided tape, applied to a few places on the fans ribs, can easily hold the fan in place and using this method you can also easily move the fan should you want to reposition it later on. As a final bit of added security, you can add a single normal picture hook or hanger at the bottom of the fan if you wish.

How to Hang a Wall Fan with Double-Sided Tape

I'm going to show you how to hang a wall fan with double-sided tape. It's a super easy and affordable way to add a touch of style and function to your home or office.

What you'll need:

Instructions:

Clean the wall and the back of the fan with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or dust. This will help the double-sided tape adhere better.


Cut the double-sided tape into strips. About an inch or an inch and a half long should be good.
Peel the backing off of the double-sided tape and apply it to the wooden slats of the fan. Be careful not to put the tape on the fabric, as this could tear it when you remove the fan.


If you're using a wall mount, attach it to the wall according to the manufacturer's instructions.


Place the fan on the wall, aligning the double-sided tape with the wall mount (if using).
Press firmly to adhere the fan to the wall.


That's it! You've now successfully hung your wall fan using double-sided tape.

Tips:

For added support, especially if you're hanging a heavier fan, you can use more strips of double-sided tape or a wall mount.


If you're hanging the fan in a humid environment, make sure to use a double-sided tape that is specifically designed for outdoor use.


To remove the fan, simply peel the double-sided tape off of the wall and the fan. Be careful not to damage the wall or the fan when removing the tape.

 

If you're hanging a large or heavy fan, you may want to use a level to make sure that it is level before you press it into place.


If you're hanging the fan in a high-traffic area, you may want to use a safety wire or chain to secure it to the wall. This will help to prevent the fan from falling if it is bumped or jostled.


If you're hanging the fan in a rental property, be sure to check with your landlord before using double-sided tape. Some landlords may not allow tenants to use double-sided tape on the walls, as it can be difficult to remove without damaging the paint or wallpaper.

 

Conclusion

Hanging a wall fan with double-sided tape is a quick and easy way to add a touch of style and function to your home or office. Just be sure to choose a strong enough type of tape and to follow the instructions carefully to ensure that your fan is securely attached to the wall.
