The NFPA Standard-96 requires each exhaust fan to be hinged, allowing appropriate inspection and cleaning.
Hinging of the exhaust fan is not only required by the code, it also helps to increase the life of the fan.
If not hinged, the electrical wiring can be torn and exhaust fans can be damaged. Kescor can purchase and install exhaust fan hinge kits at a very competitive price due to our exclusive relationship with industry manufacturers.
Fan Access Panel Installation
NFPA Standard-96 requires fan access panels on the exhaust fans, allowing all areas of the fan to be inspected and cleaned.
Fan access panels allow the technician to clean the back side of the fan blades. Not having access panels results in grease build-up on the blades, which can cause the fan to become off-balance, rattle, and wear-out the bearings and belt, thus degrading the overall effectiveness of the exhaust fan.
