Exhaust Fan Hinge Kit (Offset Fan Base) - Type II

DRIPLOC's newest Hinge Kit is easy to install on commercial kitchen exhaust fans (only 15 minutes). They allow hood cleaners the necessary access required to clean the hood exhaust system and will prevent costly repairs to the exhaust fan.

DRIPLOC's recent redesign adds some exciting new features like the side mount brackets. These new brackets are designed with multiple elongated axel placement holes that allow the bracket to mounted on angled curbs at an angle up to 45 degrees.

They also can be laid on their sides which presents a very low axel hole to be fitted in areas with very low clearance. Because of their larger, taller “L” bracket style, they can be mounted on the side of fan curb allowing them to work well on fanbases with reducers. The Upper Hinge Assembly was reengineered not only to make them stronger but also by eliminating the welded on knuckle on the bottom of the hinge, we can now sit on top of a shelf and hinge the fan. In addition to all of that we added a face cap plate which reinforces the fan bases to add strength where needed on larger or aging fans.

Lastly, the Type#2s is expandable meaning if additional support is along the fan base then you can simply purchase an additional “Upper Hinge Assembly”, slide it onto the axel along with the 2 upper assemblies.

This DRIPLOC hinge kit is proven to work and is one of the most affordable hinge kits available today.  It is shipped complete with hinges, chains and screws to install during a nightly cleaning. One DRIPLOC hinge kit is necessary for each hood exhaust fan.

All DRIPLOC hinge kits are made from heavy-duty steel. They will last for years and support the weight of most any exhaust fan. And most importantly, because of their design, DRIPLOC hinges are the easiest to install.
