Exhaust Fan Hinges

The NFPA 96 code requires that upblast fans in commercial kitchens and restaurants be equipped with hinges. Since exhaust fans are mounted on roofs, these hinges are critical for keeping the fan securely in place. More importantly, the hinges make it doubly easier to lift the fan and allow maintenance and service access.

London, Ontario, requires all commercial kitchen exhaust fans to have the appropriate hinges installed. These hinges should be of high quality and meet the NFPA 96 code sets specific standards.

Good quality exhaust fan hinges are strong, durable, and built to last. They should be made from galvanized or stainless steel, and feature hardened pins. There should also be a dust-proofing seal between the hinge halves to protect against dust, moisture, and other contaminants.

The weight of the fan must also be considered when selecting hinges for an exhaust fan. It’ll determine which type of hinge is most suitable for a particular fan size. For instance, a stronger, heavier-duty hinge may be required for a larger, more powerful fan.

If you find this responsibility too much of a burden, call London Hood Cleaning to help select and install the right exhaust fan hinge for your commercial kitchen.

Kitchen Exhaust Fan Hinge Kits

Adding an exhaust fan hinge kit also reduces the likelihood of the wiring incurring damage during cleaning and maintenance. This is because they’re designed to provide easy access to the components that need maintenance and cleaning. And as such, you don’t need to remove the whole fan bowl and disconnect the wiring. Instead, you can hinge the fan bowl open to access the parts that need cleaning and maintenance.

In other words, a kitchen exhaust fan hinge kit will no longer compel you to work with an exposed wiring system due to a lack of access. When undertaking routine cleaning and maintenance, you’ll no longer worry about fire hazards, shocks, and other safety concerns.

What does the exhaust fan hinge do?

Fire and personnel safety are the two main concerns that an exhaust fan hinge kit addresses. The hinge allows easy access to the upblast fan parts that require maintenance. This, in turn, reduces the possibility of fire hazards due to an exposed wiring system. Additionally, it ensures personnel safety by allowing a safe distance when accessing these components during cleaning and maintenance.

The heavy-duty design of the exhaust fan hinge also helps keep the upblast fan bowl secure, meaning that it will remain fixed until maintenance is performed and can be easily opened with a simple hinge action. What you get is a convenient, safe, and secure way to access the interior of your upblast fan.
