How does an exhaust fan hinge work?


Exhaust fan hinge kits come in various forms and functions. Primarily, it acts as a movable joint that is attached to the exhaust fan and the curb which allows the system to be easily open and closed. 


Most hinge kits have a locking pin, chain attachment, and other mechanisms that keep the whole system from tilting back too far. In general, the hinge secures the exhaust in its place.


A hinge kit is a commercial kitchen investment worth taking. A high-quality hinge kit will help prolong the lifespan of your commercial exhaust system. Knowing all that, it is critical to keep the hinge clean and functioning well.


NJ Hood Cleaners are knowledgeable when it comes to cleaning all types of hinge kits. Our team of hood cleaners has dealt with numerous kitchen exhaust fans and hinge kits. Here are some kinds of hinges:

Why do local safety codes and insurance companies require exhaust fan hinges?

Obviously, one of the main reasons why the local rules and regulations, as well as, most insurance companies require the commercial kitchens to have an exhaust fan hinge is because:

  • It makes the inspection, cleaning, and maintenance so much easier

Commercial kitchens heavily depend on the kitchen exhaust systems to blast up smoke, fumes, oil, heat, and grease. And since the exhaust system is in constant use, the buildup of dirt and grease on its surface, filters, and fans is fast too.


Hinge kits help eliminate any potential hazards or risks trapped in the exhaust system. The hinge allows easy access to ducts and filters. It makes dealing with rooftop grease contamination easy.

  • Protects the exhaust fans from getting damaged

Without a hinge kit, exhaust fans have to be taken out in whole in order to remove and replace broken components. Installing a hinge kit onto the system solves this problem. Hinge kits save time when removing, installing, repairing, or maintaining the commercial exhaust system.

  • Provides a proper draining solution

A hinge kit allows the water, grease, oil, and other contaminants to properly drain from the exhaust system. Exhaust system cleaners will have easy access when draining the ducts and be able to reduce and eliminate any risks and potential components that might damage the whole system.
