The Henley Kestrel Motor & Blades

The Henley Kestrel is a great-value, state-of-the-art mid-priced designer ceiling fan which is one of the most efficient and powerful motors on the market.  It has a unique high-duty 46w (cf the normal 35 w of competitors) DC brushless motor which is ultra-low energy design using extra-efficient copper windings with silicon steel laminations and precisely controlled with a special wave-form to save energy.

The solid-wood blades are made from light but strong sycamore wood from certified sustainable forests.  The wood is seasoned for 9 months to prevent it warping and then made into blocks that are CNC carved out to the 3D curved windmill shape.  They are hand-finished and spray-painted before being balanced in sets to eliminate any wobbles on the fan.

 

The Henley Kestrel LED Light Kit

The light kit is a low-energy LED which has a colour temperatures of standard pure white (4,000K).   The energy use is 17 watts giving an equivalent light of 50 watts and 600 lumens.  The light shade is made from frosted glass.

 

Henley Fan Birds of Prey Range

To commemorate our 25 years in business milestone we have launched our own brand range of mid-market solid-wood, high efficiency, DC ultra-low energy ceiling fans with a high quality specification for about 1/3 less than similar brands.  The range comprises the Falcon, Kestrel and Harrier models chosen to reflect the elegance, efficiency, power and precision of these amazing birds in mastering the air-stream.  We achieve this by going direct to the factory and passing on the savings.

The Falcon range sits under our other own-brand Zephyr range at a lower price point of £400-450 with smaller blade sizes at 42″/107cm and 52″/132cm and less ornate blades but with the same high quality. The Falcon range is manufactured by one of the best ceiling fan factories in the World in Taiwan by a family business who were established in 1965.  They have been producing them for over 40 years and supply some of the best quality global ceiling fan brands which sell for 50% higher prices in other countries.  The range has beautiful contemporary finishes for the motor and very stylish carved solid-wood blades in either drop-rod or hugger style, with and without LED lights.

 

What is a DC Ceiling Fan?

Some people wrongly assume that a DC ceiling fan needs special DC wiring.  This is not the case as the fan is fed by normal 220/240v mains AC (typically off the lighting circuit) and the electronic driver converts it into a DC voltage chops the wave form and converts it back to AC again before feeding it to the motor.  This is done to give a very precise 6-speed control and big energy saving without any loss of power.  The driver also receives the Wi Fi signal from the remote handset.

 

Compare Our Motor Performance with the Competition

All of our competitors’ DC fans that look similar to this have a cheaper motor duty of only 35 watts and often without quality copper wires but cheaper aluminium wire which is not as efficient or reliable.  Our own brand Zephyr fan does have a larger motor at 60 w duty but is detuned to a maximum power output of 30 w to ensure maximum efficiency and reliability. The Kestrel is set to 35 w for the same reasons.  The graphs compare the air moved and fan speeds for the Kestrel/Falcon fans (same figures) along with our three different sized Zephyr fans and the MrKen Wood which has a smaller 35 w motor and is limited to 30w.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many brands’ fans  can only rotate a max. of 130 rpm at full power for a 52″ blade.  Our motor however can run up to 220 rpm and move up to 33% more air for the same energy use.  In practice the fan would be run at lower speeds for effortless, quiet, streamlined and far more efficient airflow.  For these reasons we can offer a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects in the motor whereas most other brands are only 3 years or a maximum of 10 or sometimes 20 years.

3 reviews for Henley Kestrel Solid-Wood Designer Eco DC LED Ceiling Fan 52″/132cm, 46w High-Power, Lifetime Warranty – New for 2024!

  1. Nice style and colour – Josie Hopkins (verified owner)

    I am really pleased with this fan which we got for our bedroom. It is surprisingly quiet, in fact no noise at all on the low speeds which is perfect for us as we are light sleepers.

  2. Beautiful Blades – Patrick Neustedter (verified owner)

    We were offered this fan on approval and I was impressed sufficiently to keep it. It is a lovely looking fan with beautiful curvy blades which also generates a nice strong airflow.

  3. Good design – Angela Whitehead (verified owner)

    We had a few problems understanding the manual but the fan went together fine and looks great now it is up. The operation is nice and more than enough breeze for our 20ft lounge.
