Access Panel Installation
NFPA 96 requires access panels on duct at every change of direction and every 12 feet of length. These panels allow our technicians to completely clean the system eliminating “if we can’t see it , we can’t clean it” areas of the duct.
Exhaust fan clean out ports are also required by code. These ports are mini access panels which allow complete inspection and cleaning of the exhaust fan. Fan access panels (clean out ports) allow our technicians to clean the back side of the fan blades. Not having the clean out ports can result in grease build-up on the blades which can cause the fan to become off-balance, vibrate and noisy. This vibration will prematurely wear out the fan bearings and belts.
