Restaurants know that kitchen exhaust systems experience grease buildup over time. But what many restaurants may not know is that this grease buildup is a leading cause of restaurant fires. Because of this, federal law mandates regular cleaning of these systems to keep grease buildup at a minimum. Failure to do this can result in citations from the local fire marshal or even loss of insurance coverage.
One of the components that needs to be cleaned is the kitchen exhaust grease fan. However, fully removing it to access the exhaust system ductwork can be difficult and time-consuming. To make regular kitchen exhaust system cleanings easier, install an exhaust fan hinge kit from Kanela.
Exhaust Fan Hinge Kit Installation
During the course of cleaning your vent hood, we have to remove your grease fans and move it out of the way on the roof to access the vent. Doing this over multiple visits can result in additional wear on the wires, motor and blades of your fan. To minimize the wear on your equipment, use hinge kits from Kanela.
- We only use hinges and fasteners specifically built for exhaust fans, durable enough to withstand exhaust heat and exposure to the elements
- Once the hinges are installed, cleaning technicians can simply swing the fan out of the way, avoiding the risk of damage to your equipment
- The location of the hinges will be in alignment with fire safety regulations.
- We can install the hinges during a regular vent hood cleaning service visit.
