Hinge kits make it easy to clean the exhaust fan and eliminate the risk of damage to fan components. The NFPA requires exhaust fans to be hinged and have flexible, weatherproof electrical cable. Hinging of the exhaust fan helps to increase the life of the fan and promote safety when cleaning and inspecting.
If the fan is not hinged, proper cleaning and inspection becomes difficult and may result in premature damage to the fan bowl, motor housing, and possibly the facility roof. In fact, many insurance companies are now requiring hinge kits on fans because it decreases liability.
