The patented Super Hinge™ provides access to rooftop up-blast exhaust fans and is the ONLY patented NFPA 96 compliant fan hinge on the market. Hinged up-blast exhaust fans are required for commercial exhaust systems to be NFPA 96 compliant. The NFPA 96 requirements state the following code for hinging compliance:
- Hinged commercial up-blast exhaust fans are required for compliance
- Service hold-open retainers are required
The standard Super Hinge™ has an L-bracket on the top support arm that helps to reinforce damaged up-blast fans or support heavy fan weight distribution. The Super Hinge™ features make it the most versatile hinge system Omni Containment Systems has to offer. It can be adapted to fit all of the up-blast exhaust fans on the market.
