Revolution in Ventilation: KlassFan's Balsa Wood Blades P8 for Winter 2023
This winter 2023, the world of ceiling fans is about to witness a revolution with the arrival of the new balsa wood blades, the P8 models, by KlassFan. These blades, combining aesthetics and performance, mark a turning point in the sector of domestic and professional ventilation.
Dimensions and Variety
The P8 blades are distinguished not only by their manufacturing material - balsa wood, known for its lightness and strength - but also by their variety of sizes and colors. Available in two main dimensions, 132 cm and 166 cm, they offer adaptability to various spaces, whether small or large. Moreover, the choice of five colors - white, black, light wood, dark wood, and gray lacquered wood - allows for harmonious integration into any type of interior decor.
Customization and Finishes
The most innovative aspect of the P8 blades lies in their high level of customization. Users can choose between open or closed blades, thus creating 20 different configurations. The blade finishes are also customizable, with three options: 100% wood, a cover matching the color of the motor, and a ring with colored screws for a refined finish. Additionally, a slim light kit adds a touch of modernity and functionality.
Performance and Silence
The choice of balsa wood for the P8 blades is strategic. Ultra-light, it allows a weight tolerance of ±2 grams, thus optimizing the balance and performance of the fan. This precision contributes to the P8 blades' ability to be used with rods of different lengths, depending on the diameter of the fan, while maintaining silent operation. Profiled like airplane propellers, these blades guarantee silent operation below 38 Db (a) at speed 3, thus meeting the criteria of the Hyper Silence label.
The L1Slim Kit is another asset of fans equipped with P8 blades. With its compact dimensions (21 cm in diameter, 8 cm high) and 18-watt power, this LED light kit is not only economical but also adaptable to the desired light intensity. Its versatility is enhanced by the option to choose from three color temperatures (2700K, 4500K, 6000K) and a CRI of 65, making this kit ideal for different environments.
In summary, the P8 balsa wood blades from KlassFan represent a major advancement in the field of ceiling ventilation. With sixty possible combinations with the two motors available in ten colors, they offer a potential of 400 combinations, ensuring that each user finds the fan perfectly suited to their needs and style. These new P8 blades combine aesthetics, customization, performance, and silence, setting a new standard in the ceiling fan market.

What is Balsa Wood?
Balsa wood is a lightweight but surprisingly robust material, coming from the balsa tree (Ochroma pyramidale), which primarily grows in South America. This wood is renowned for its low density, making it extremely light compared to other woods. Despite its lightness, it has good structural strength, making it a favored choice for various applications requiring both lightness and strength.
Used in the construction of scale models, particularly airplanes, as well as in industrial applications such as aircraft components and sports equipment, balsa wood is also prized in the ceiling fan industry for making blades. Its ability to reduce the overall weight of the fan while maintaining a solid structure is essential for improving energy efficiency and quiet operation of fans. Moreover, balsa is easy to work with and can be shaped into various forms, making it ideal for customized and innovative designs in the field of ceiling ventilation.
