Perfect bedroom fan
Really good fan. Not too loud but super effective. Sleek design even with light - blends in to the room. You can keep the covers on in summer using this fan!
Purchased in January 2021.
Better than air conditioning!
Even in this weekend’s Sydney heatwave these fans are fantastic. So quiet and effective. I’ve had my fans for a year now and they are still Worth every cent. Thank you Franco!
Great fan, really happy
Really happy with the urban 2 DC with light we had installed in our daughters bedroom, great power and so silent. Only annoying thing is the beep noise every time you push a button on the remote... would be great if there’s a way to turn that noise off!!
Fabulous Fan - very quiet and circulates the air well. I would recommend this fan to others as it has a very modern and sleek look with a very reasonable price.
We were very pleased with the fan, service and speed of delivery. We had already bought 6 previously so we knew the quality and operation of the fan.
We would buy again from you and highly recommend your business.
Fan is vey quiet and has great airflow.

Even our electrician was impressed
When we bought our house 12 years ago we swore we would install ceiling fans...and it took Covid isolation for us to decide to finally do it! We looked at many models and read a heap of reviews and decided to pay a bit extra for the Urban 2 DC model with CCT LED light. We installed 5 in total, 4 in bedrooms and one in a living area. Running 10 hours a day at full speed one fan costs about 8 cents per day to run which is way cheaper than our aircon. Our electrician explained that the DC model would be quieter, more efficient and have more speed ...options. He did say the AC model was a good fan too if you decide to go that way. There is so much to love about this fan. It looks great and is incredibly stable and quiet, you only hear the breeze it generates. No wobble or vibration. It has 6 speeds and you can even reverse the direction in winter. I love the timer and often set it to go off after eg 4 hours. The light at full brightness is a very powerful cool white and there are two other options which are less bright and more warm. Dimming is a little strange, you have to turn off and on to cycle through the 3 brightness levels and it beeps each time. The light will always be full power when you turn it on, you have to adjust each time if you want it softer. The remote feels a little light / cheap but it does the job and can be wall mounted. Be aware that with the DC fan your wall switch needs to be on for the remote to work. You can turn the light on and off with the wall switch or remote but you need the remote to turn the fan on or off, change speed, dim the light etc. Our electrician has installed his fair share of metal rattler fans and was very impressed with the quality of this bad boy. The 52 inch span gives more reach without being “huge”. We purchased our fans through Fansonline and they were great to deal with. The fans arrived in less than a week with free shipping. If you are planning on staying in your home for a few years then consider purchasing this fan. Amortised over 5-10 or more years it isn’t much and they are a million times better than the cheapies. The fan comes with a 3 year warranty and is recommended by Choice. I recommend it too!
Fan for our back patio
Very happy with this fan. We had it put in ready for when our deck is done. Which will be perfect for next summer.
Very stable with no noise especially with the remote control.

Fans On-line and Franco Urban 2
We recently purchased a Franco Urban 2 ceiling fan for our new home. We had standed included fans in all bedrooms, however we we waiting to install other lighting options in our main bedroom. The ease of ordering, prompt delivery, packaging were all first class. We had our electrician install the fan and it seemed a pretty quick job tapping into the existing power source and then utilising the remote to adjust fan speed, direction and the brightness of the L.E.D. light. The noise (or lack there-of) of the fan is the immediate highlight. When compared to the fans in the other rooms and as supplied by the house builder, the Franco Urban 2 is literally silent.

I purchased 4 x Fanco Urban 2 Indoor/Outdoor ABS Blade Ceiling Fans and couldn't be happier! Fans are only 3 speed but perfect for our needs. Was wrapped to find they are Australian made and recommended by Choice. They circulate the air beautifully and are just so very quiet. I love the fact that the blades are a composite material as I was so fed up with metal blades and the rust and paint flakes that chip off the edges. Am so happy with the product that when I move on to the next stage of our renovation I will definitely be purchasing more units. Great product!!
Purchased in February 2020 at Purchased directly from the Fans On Line store. for $685.00.
Beautiful, quiet ceiling fan with extra features
I bought the fan a couple of weeks ago and had it installed a little while later. I bought this fan because of it's rating in Choice plus I am super sensitive to noise, and I dislike cool white light. The fan has 5 speeds and the lowest is inaudible but still effective in lower heat situations. The higher speeds work exceptionally well, are audible but not loud. The only sound seems to be that of the wind being generated, not mechanical noise. The fan was the only reasonably priced fan with all the features I wanted: appropriate low noise as mentioned above, DC power, remote control, 3 light settings (including warm white), timer and summer/winter switch on the remote. EXACTLY what I wanted.
Great quality, quiet fans with good functionality and great after sales service!
Fanco Urban 2 DC fans were highly rated on Choice and have lived up to expectations. Universal Fans after-sales service has been great when seeking to buy a spare remote.
Purchased in September 2019 for $325.00.
This fan is quiet and works well. It doesn't wobble and looks nice. The remotes work well. The fans have really brightened up the room and have made the bedrooms look more sophisticated.
Purchased in February 2020.
We are really happy with the fan, it is well reviewed for a reason. It looks great, works well and it’s super quiet.
We purchased the fan for our son’s room and it’s perfect!
exactly as described
only had the fan a couple of weeks but so far...
powerful fan. looks modern and clean.
wanted a dc motor and this has shown to be incredibly quiet.
like the timer function on the remote as well.
the light is bright without being glaring.
We have this fan installed in our nursary. It's an excellent fan with all the basic functions you need including 5 speeds, timer and reversable rotation. It's very quiet, no problem using it in a bedroom.
I got this fan after reading the reviews. It is a good fan and with five speed the airflow is very good. There is no noise when it operates. I will give it a five star.
This fan was a replacement for a ceiling fan in an openspace living room/kitchen and covers the area very well with good air movement and plenty of settings. The fan has no "wobble" and the remote is user friendly.
Purchased in November 2019 for $289.00.
Perfect for out outdoor area
After a lot of investigation on the best outdoor ceiling fans to buy we Purchased 2 Fanco Urban 2, they run quiet on all 3 speeds the airflow is perfect. Also look great. They do not disappoint.
Recommended by Choice. Must be good.
We purchased and installed 2 in November 2019; both with remote and dimmable LED light. So far they have met all expectations; quiet, no obvious vibration, plenty of "breeze" and the 3x intensity LED light gives more than enough light on high and adequate light on the two lower settings. Remote is easy to operate. Looking forward to trying them out when/if the weather warms up and we need air circulation to sleep.
Questions & Answers
Where are these fans made . Thanks Keith
Fanco A.Fanco Australia
Hi Keith, we’re an Australian owned and operated company, and like most suppliers of electrical goods in Australia, we import products made to Australian standards from China and Taiwan. All of the ceiling fans we are aware of on the Australian market are also imported. However, for your peace of mind,all of our fans are covered by an Australian warranty – and we offer a 3 year in-home warranty (which covers the cost of a technician to repair or replace the fan if necessary) on all of the products in the Urban 2 range. If you have any further questions about this please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Can this fan be used with a wall switch? I do not want a remote
What is the length of the "pole" ie ceiling to fan drop
Fanco A.Fanco Australia
Hi Mark, thanks for your question. The Urban 2 with AC motor can be operated by a wall control, whereas the model with the DC motor can only be operated by remote. The model with timber blades has a ceiling to base of motor drop of 315mm, (or 345 for the timber blades with light) and the model with ABS blades has a ceiling to base of motor drop of 305mm (357mm). You can find more information about specific models on our website, www.fanco.com.au, and if you have any other questions, please email email@example.com.
Hello. Our Fanco urban 2 DC series (with light) was working fine. Recently, however, the fan stopped working (possibly after a power outage a while ago), though the light still works. We replaced the battery in the remote control to no effect. When we press the fan button we hear a beeping sound but the fan doesn't move. Instructions on the remote direct us to turn off the power and press the "fan off" button for 10 seconds. We did that, the red light on the remote flashed and we heard beeping but the fan didn't start. Also, in order to turn off the power to the fan we have to flick the switch in the fuse box for the entire house as we can't find the power switch for the fan in the ceiling. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
