Are all ceiling fan hanger bars the same

Hi,
I am trying to install a ceiling fan in my kid's room. The box is not fan rated, that I checked and understand. I got a fan box today and was about to install when it hit me I didn't know if the old hanger bar between the joists was adequate. I understand the boxes may not be fan rated but what about hanger bars? Are they all they same? No bar I looked at indicates one way or the other regarding fan vs fixture. The existing hole is between the joists, so I have to use a bar of some sort.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

Joe left you a link to a fan mounting box system. That can be installed from the room below if there is no attic access.
