Industrial and commercial ventilation systems are designed to vent smoke, grease, odors, toxic fumes, and pollutants from the inside of a building and exhaust them outdoors. They differ from home ventilating systems in that they are designed to handle high-volume exhaust, rather than smaller amounts found in homes. For public health and safety, industrial systems are equipped with filters to keep toxic fumes from being released into the atmosphere. Restaurants, commercial kitchens, factories, and plants are required by local, state, and federal laws to implement appropriate measures for keeping employees safe and for making sure emissions meet safety guidelines.
Commercial and industrial operators can avoid fines and retrofits by staying in code when it comes to exhaust, filters, air intake systems, variable airflow, and ductwork. Quality industrial exhaust fans combined with professional installation and regular maintenance helps ensure that a system won't malfunction. Look for quality equipment from a reliable dealer, and complaint-friendly professionals to help you stay in code.
