GREASE FILTER REPLACEMENTS FOR EXHAUST HOODS

Averus provides UL listed, replacement filters for your hood: aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized, spark-arrestor, as well as custom gap fillers. Our baffle grease filters reduce the amount of grease-laden air that escapes into the ductwork and exhaust system. These filters also serve as a firebreak, controlling cooking flare-ups by minimizing flame penetration beyond the filter area. Did you know, a clean filter can remove up to 35% of grease laden-vapors from your exhaust?! Clean filters also provide a cooler work environment in the kitchen. We take filters seriously, it is important that you never cook with gaps or missing filters! Call us today to order at 800-393-8287.

ACCESS PANEL INSTALLATION

If we had a fairy godmother in the construction industry, we would wish for all exhaust ductwork to run straight from the hood to the fan. Until our dreams come true, we have to focus on making your existing ductwork accessible, because if we can’t reach it, we can’t clean it. Averus can provide suitable access to your kitchen exhaust system to ensure proper and thorough cleaning, often we can install these items without the use of other trades people, but when needed we are happy to coordinate our efforts. Per code, access is required at every turn of the duct, as well as long runs of horizontal and some vertical. Averus installs only UL-listed access panels, as required by NFPA 96.

FAN HINGE RETRO FITTING

In accordance with NFPA 96, Averus will install hinge kits on the base of the exhaust fan. Fans can then be safely tipped and cleaned without damage to the fan, conduit or the roofing system, resulting in a longer fan life. Unhinged fans must be removed from their curbing to clean the fan blades. Fan access doors can also be installed to clean the tops of the fan blades.
