WHO WE ARE

OUR STORY

Timber Fans was founded in 2000 by Horst Hutter, a qualified refrigeration engineer from Austria with over 50 years experience in the fields of ventilation and refrigeration. His goal was to produce a ceiling fan product that was not simply functional but an expression of classic design and aesthetic appeal combined with superior quality materials and engineering precision. 16 Years later, the business, based in Knysna, is thriving and its products are to be found widely throughout Southern Africa, the Indian Ocean islands and further afield. It proudly describes itself as the maker of “South Africa’s finest handcrafted ceiling fans”.

“Our mission is to be a world class maker and supplier of handcrafted ceiling fans in a wide range of natural wood combinations and finishes.”

All our hancrafted ceiling fans are certified by a master craftsman specialised in ventilation and air conditioning with over 50 years experience.

 

We use aircraft quality bearings in all motors to ensure a longer lifespan and whisper-quite performance and re-engineered blades to deliver performance improvements of over 20%.

 

Every ceiling fan is balanced and sound levels tested according to strict standards, before being expertly and securely packed for customer collection or shipment.
