The ceiling fan blades are made from various materials but in India the traditional material used in fan body and blades was Iron.

Consider Your Ceiling
The ceiling of the room where the fan is going to be installed makes much more difference while choosing the right fan. In India the most of the ceiling are made from false ceiling according to interior design. The fan pipe gets installed before the false ceiling (pop) in made. While selecting the fan pipe for false ceiling, it should be at least 9” out of the ceiling surface. This 9 inch of clearance would get the maximum air from the room and it will be easy to install the fan and its accessories. There are different mounting pipes available in market like inclined pipe for steep ceiling, upside down for mounting the pipe on ground etc.
Fan Fastener and Hook
The fan pipe should be installed with single or double anchor fastener or fan hook to secure the fan rubber clamp on the place. Before installing the fan fastener on the concrete ceiling, look out for any electrical pipe or any other pipe inside the ceiling. Once the fastener is installed, check the fan fastener by putting some body weight on it. The general image of fan fastener and hook is shown below:
