Ceiling fan proximity to automatic detection.


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to find out if there is any guidance to reference on the proximity of ceiling fans adjacent to automatic smoke detection, and if there is the potential for either false activations or probably more importantly, the potential of the fan keeping smoke away from the detector. I have read the general rule of thumb (minimum 3 feet distance from the fan) but can anyone direct me to where this is stated please if possible.


Thank you
