Ideal for 11-foot ceilings, this 3/4-inch ID by 24-inch oil rubbed bronze extension down rod maximizes your ceiling fan's cooling benefits by providing the proper height. It features an oil rubbed bronze finish for a traditional complement to your existing ceiling fan. Tapered threaded ends ensure a deeper connection and stronger bond for maximum durability. For optimum performance and safety, ceiling fan blades should be at least 7 ft from the floor but no higher than 8 to 9 ft in order to best cool a room. For ceilings 9 ft and higher, an extension down rod is required to bring the ceiling fan down to the proper height above the floor.
