Super Hinge changes the way exhaust fans are hinged for cleaning and maintenance. The Omni Super Hinge’s patented technology allows for ease, convenience, versatility and durability, and helps increase the life of the expensive fan housing by adding support to prone failure areas of the fan base. Laser cut heavy gauge powder coated steel components eliminate the repetitive flexing stress that occurs to fan base during use and service. Corrosion proof hardware is provided to ensure that the Super Hinge stays firmly attached to the fan and duct. NFPA 96 Code 18.104.22.168 states: “Approved Up-blast Fans with motors surrounded by the air stream shall be hinged, supplied with flexible weather proof electrical cable and service hold-open retainers, and listed for this use.”
If a fan exceeds these sizes, our Print-n-Fit forms available on this site will direct you as to which measurements are needed for us to make custom application hinging systems for unique or oversized fan-to-duct hinging scenarios.
Please remember when choosing a Super Hinge hinging system for proper safe support we recommend choosing a model which supports at least 2/3rds of the fan base. This will help eliminate any flex of the fan base and insure a flush contact point between the fan base and the duct surface.
