KDK has been a mainstay in the world of fans for more than 100 years and our ceiling fans are often the solution to well-ventilated homes due to its unique 3D blade design that allows for strong and powerful airflow. However, in a world of choices, why buy KDK? To be brief, we care about your safety.
“But how do we know?”
Well, I’m glad you asked, curious reader.
Safety Mark is a standard implemented by the Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Regulations (CPSR). Safety Mark is a quick and easy way for consumers to know that the product has passed a rigorous series of test that ensure the appliance is safe for use in our homes.
For ceiling fans, this means they have to meet three requirements:
1. Suspensions must have adequate strength to withstand mechanical stresses from daily use.
2. Screws, bolts and nuts connecting the suspension system must not come loose.
3. Moving parts must not cause undue stress to electrical connections.
KDK ceiling fans you find on store shelves, both digital and otherwise have all been submitted for and have passed the aforementioned tests. This means they bear the rubber stamp of approval to be spinning in your homes.
“But what happens when ceiling fans don’t have Safety Mark applied?”
According to Enterprise Singapore, fans without a Safety Mark runs the risk of potentially falling, electrocuting users or causing electrical fires. It is also not uncommon to hear of horror stories of fan blades flying off when in use.
Moreover, buying products without Safety Mark could lead to insurance claims being denied. While this varies based on your insurance provider, most of them will only strictly only cover appliances that have Safety Mark.
“Okay, but Brand X has Safety Mark too!”
Sure, my zealous reader, but here’s what KDK does to ensure your safety:
KDK ceiling fans are equipped with a patented safety design that assures the safety of you and your loved ones. But what is so great about this patented safety design?
The first of all is a cut off safety switch. In the event of a fan mounting failure, the cutoff switch will disconnect and stop the motor from spinning.
Secondly, a safety wire. The safety wire, made out of woven steel, and will catch a falling fan hub and prevent it from causing damage to its surroundings.
Lastly, is a fall prevention plate. Mounted on the fan blade, this prevents failures by providing an additional measure to ensure that the fan blades do not break off during normal operation.
KDK goes above and beyond the CPSR’s requirements, all to safeguard you and your family. So when shopping for a ceiling fan, always consider the safety aspect as the last you would want is for it to suddenly come crashing down on your head, hurting you and your loved ones.
