If you live by the beach, it’s probably because you like the warm weather. But even the most seasoned beachcombers have their limits when it comes to the heat. The last thing you need when you switch on your fan for a bit of relief is to find out that it’s gone rusty. A coastal rated  fan may save you disappointment in this situation. To help you choose, we’ve picked out the 5 best coastal rated fans.

“I did a lot of research, because I’m close to the beach and I don’t want it to rust. In the end you just can’t beat IP66”

Not only is the Aqua DC fan offers the most protection from rain, it’s an excellent option for coastal areas too. This modern 3 blade model produces an excellent airflow and uses very little energy.

“Very, very impressed with the airflow on this”

The larger size achieves an airflow of over 19,000 m3/hr on its top speed, which is particularly impressive, but the 52-inch model is also an excellent high airflow option for more smaller areas. This model benefits from Fanco’s recent innovations, and is available with either a hardwired wall control or with a remote which includes smart functionality.
