The device by Clatronic is a model that didn't like in the test. Both the simple processing and the uneven distribution of the air lead to the fact that unfortunately only the mark "unsatisfactory" can be assigned. In addition, the device is unpleasantly loud and does not stand safely. It is therefore not advisable to buy it.
This fan from Clatronic is a tower fan, which in its form stands out from most competing products. Unfortunately, this type of fan has the disadvantage that the wind window is rather small.
The Clatronic floor standing fan is a 76 centimetre high model in white, which looks quite modern. Unfortunately, it doesn't convince in the test with a solid stand, quite the opposite: Even with a thoughtless touch, there is the danger that it will tip over. However, the structure is also quite simple on its own. All you have to do is screw on the footrest, so you need a screwdriver as a tool. However, it is already clear here that this is not necessarily a high-quality model: All parts are made of plastic. The manual is quite compact and contains all the important information.
The fan Clatronic T-VL 3546 is not a fan with rotor blades, but rather a so-called tower fan. The wind window is therefore quite small in comparison to the other stationary fans in the test. In order to benefit from a pleasant draught, the fan must be precisely aligned. You have the possibility to set it to a certain position or to adjust a movement from an angle of up to 75 degrees. The test also showed that the air outlet is not uniform. The airflow at the top and bottom is much stronger than in the middle.
Unfortunately, the T-VL 3546 Tower fan is not only one of the loudest devices in the test, the operating noise also varies greatly. For the office, this model is therefore only suitable to a limited extent. On the other hand, it is possible to set a timer up to 120 minutes. This is done via a rotary switch, which is not very precise. A remote control is unfortunately not included.
