There are a lot of kitchen exhaust fan accessories and customers of Hoodmart often ask if they need them. For the most part, you don’t need these accessories but depending on the type of restaurant you’re running, and how you’re using your exhaust fan, some of our accessories may be a good option for you.
It’s essential to keep your kitchen exhaust fan well-maintained and in good working order. Doing so can help prevent significant issues like back drafting, buildup of fumes that could be deadly, and negative pressure. Some of these accessories improve performance while others help with maintenance needs.
Exhaust fan handles
In some cases, exhaust fan handles may be a great way to make it both easier and safer to open and close your exhaust fan. They offer an easier, better way to gain access to the internal components and are a great option if you intend to do regular maintenance or when it comes time for repairs.
Grease containment boxes
To control extra grease that could damage the rooftop, result in a terrible grease fire, or harm the environment around us all, grease containment boxes can trap grease until you’re able to get rid of it in a way that’s safe and healthy for the environment.
Exhaust fan hinge kits
If you want to ensure that your exhaust fan is up to the fire code set by NFPA, then an exhaust fan hinge kit may be what you’re looking for. When you install one, it makes it easier for you to service your fan on a routine basis, and it makes it easier to clean your fan without the risk of damaging or affecting your fan’s wiring, housing, or other components. Exhaust fan hinge kits can be found in a wide range of types and sizes to work with virtually any fan.
Exhaust fan access panels
These are installed from the exterior of your fan. That make it easier to get at your fan blades when you need to inspect them or when it’s time for routine maintenance or cleaning. Sometimes you’ll see them referred to as ports or plugs.
