Your drains are likely filled with a variety of debris, including food, grease, and dirt. This mixture is sure to clog your drains over time and invite unwanted drain flies, which are a real nusiance. At Hi-Tech Hood Masters, we offer drain jetting solutions to free up the grease and grime trapped in your drains. Steer clear of common household products that will only mask the odor without taking care of the problem. Our tools are sure to blast away that drain-clogging debris and bacteria.
Grease Containment Systems
Grease containment systems are vital to protect your roof from an overflow of grease, which will eat away at the membrane of your roof, causing extensive damage. HI-TECH will install a containment system and maintenance it with each visit.
According to the NFPA 96 FIre Codes, the ability to drain grease out of any traps or low points formed in the fan or duct near the termination of the system into a collection container that is noncombustible, closed rainproof, and structurally sound for the service to which it is applied and that will not sustain combustion.
HINGE KIT INSTALLATION
Upon inspection of your hood by HI-TECH, we will ensure that your fans have operable hinges, which allow the fans to open and close safely. When performing service, the hinges protect our technicians from injury and the fire marshall when performing inspections of your hoods. It is a NFPA 96 fire code violation to not have and properly maintain these hinges as to prevent your establishment from receiving a fine.
According to the NFPA 96 FIre Codes, exhaust fans must have a hinge with a "hold open" retainer installed on them. You must be in compliance before HI-TECH is able to perform hood cleaning services.
HI-TECH will also install necessary hinges on the same visit prior to cleaning your hoods.
iNSTALLATION OF dUCT ACCESS PANELS
It is not unusual to find exhaust systems that were installed without the proper number of access panels, which are necessary to perform a proper cleaning. When the duct makes a 90 degree bend, an access panel must be added to prevent a grease accumulation and fire.
According to the NFPA Fire Codes for Duct and Access Panels, states that grease duct access doors are required to be installed on every 12' of grease duct.
Our technicians are able to install additional panels at time of service depending on the number of panels needed.
