Ceiling fan downrods let you bring your ceiling fan closer to the room occupants for maximum enjoyment of circulated air. Perfect for moving air from high cathedral ceilings or great rooms. And when used with a reverse-flow air in colder months, the circulation moves trapped heat that collects at the ceiling down to where it can be enjoyed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ordered 48" downrods for HD fan, HD recommended wrong size!! I LOVE the fans I bought, but I needed 48" downrods. I went to your website and purchased the downrods recommended in your link that were supposed to fit. One BIG problem, when they arrived they were the wrong diameter and did not fit the fan as stated!! I then had to pay my installer to go to your competitor and pick up the correct downrods that they had in stock. VERY inconvenient and costly due to your error!! September 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by BEWARE! Not a universal size downrod!! Ordered this to go with a Hampton Bay fan. The diameter of the rod is smaller than a universal downrod, but this was not stated clearly in the description. Also $15 more expensive than the universal downrod we purchased locally. My husband, who manufactures lamps and lighting fixtures (but not fans, unfortunately), said the quality of this product was average at best & overpriced. February 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Misleading Size Although the size stated is a standard size for downrods and matches the size stocked at stores in other colors, this one is actually smaller. It is not a standard ceiling fan size. Even though I used online chat with HD to confirm that this was compatible with my HD bought fan, it was not. Had to return March 2, 2013
