Exhaust Fan Accessories
Exhaust Fan Hinge Kit
Premier Grease recommends that you protect every exhaust fan with a hinge kit.
An exhaust fan hinge kit acts like a door frame for the fan and allows our professional hood cleaning team to safely tilt the fan open so we can properly clean the inside of the fan blades and down into the ductwork.
Without a hinge kit, the entire fan must be removed during the cleaning process and set to the side of the duct and on the roof membrane. This can lead to unnecessary damage to your fan, a possible puncture of the roof from a sharp corner or the conduit wiring getting pulled out.
Premier Grease hinge kits help reduce accidental damage to exhaust fans, are recommended by building code and are accompanied by a lifetime warranty.
Exhaust Fan Access Panel
Access Panels allow your hood-cleaning professionals to clean all of the ductwork that we cannot reach or see from the fan or hood. Collection of grease and debris in these hidden areas can be very dangerous and create a much higher risk for a fire.
NFPA 96 specifies that an exhaust fan access panel be installed at least every 12 feet and at every bend yet many commercial kitchens do not have the required access. Premier Grease will do a complimentary inspection of your system to determine if any inaccessible areas exist and if an access panel is recommended to properly clean your system.
All Premier Grease foremen have been trained to safely install only certified access panels so we can get to the inaccessible areas, clean them, and help prevent a grease fire.
A broken or worn fan belt is one of the most common reasons why hood exhaust systems don’t work properly. Regrettably many restaurants forget to change their fan belts regularly. A broken fan belt may not only cause the kitchen to be excessively hot, but it can create a safety hazard. Not maintaining this seemingly small part can shut down your restaurant and lease to huge losses.
Belt manufacturers recommend replacing your belt with every hood cleaning, just like changing the oil in your car. Premier Grease has a belt replacement program where we will change your belt while we are cleaning your kitchen exhaust system. Most companies charge more than $100 for a service call in addition to the cost of replacing the fan belt. Let Premier Grease put you on a belt replacement program so you can avoid extra costs and unexpected service calls.
