ULTRA Smart Fan

The ULTRA Smart Fan by Modern Forms helps create a safer sanctuary for residential, hospitality and commercial settings. ULTRA uses a patent pending system, which combines a powerful Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) LED module that irradiates the air, with an efficient ceiling fan that circulates the air from the occupied spaces to the unoccupied upper reaches of an area.  This combination can help reduce the SARS COV-2 virus in the breathable air spaces.

An independent CAP (College of American Pathologists) and CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) accredited lab, Innovative Bioanalysis, has tested the efficacy of the ULTRA.  The lab test on the ULTRA, with the UV-C LED module enabled and the fan operating in the standard forward rotation at the highest speed setting, showed 99.99% (4 log) reduction of SARS-CoV-2 virus in the breathable air space after just 30 minutes of operation of the ULTRA in a closed 8’x8’x10’ room!

The ULTRA Smart Fan produces 5172 cubic feet per minute (CFMs) of airflow on High and also irradiates a large area above the ceiling fan with a UV-C LED module, which operates at a UV-C range (peak wavelength of 275 nanometers) to reduce SARS-COV-2 virus in the breathable air in the room.

ULTRA is a designer ceiling fan, available in the 54″ size with three finishes: brushed nickel housing with matte black blades, matte black housing and matching blades, and matte white housing with matching blades to accommodate many interiors. The fan is crafted with stainless steel hardware and ABS blades giving it a damp location rating that allows it to be used in covered outdoor spaces too.  ULTRA includes a Bluetooth hand-held remote which controls the six speeds of the fan and the direction of the air, upward or downward. As efficiency goes, this ENERGY STAR rated ceiling fan utilizes a powerful DC motor that keeps things running smooth, quiet and 70% more efficient than traditional AC fans and offers the ultimate user experience in controlling the timing and duration of operation. For unprecedented control, connect with the Modern Forms app via Wi-Fi from anywhere in the world to operate ULTRA, create schedules, or integrate with building management systems and smart home devices.

ULTRA integrates seamlessly with leading smart home devices you may already own, including Google Assistant, Control4, Josh.AI, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings, as well as smart thermostats such as ecobee, using voice command and advances in automation. Enable any of these devices to turn your fan on and off, change speeds and reverse the rotation of the blades.
