Stainless Steel Kitchen Duct NYC
If you own or manage a New York City Restaurant Exhaust ductwork provides the means to transfer contaminated air, as well as cooking heat and nasty grease vapors from inside the hood to the fan. We’re not talking about some cheap steel dumped on us by China. This is American Made (In Ohio) Stainless Steel Duct NYC Restaurant Owners want in their commercial kitchen line.
Exhaust Ducts accumulate a significant amount of combustible grease and need to be fabricated from 16- steel or 18-gage stainless steel as per code requirements. But it’s more than that. We have to make sure that the stainless steel duct is designed and assembled (with ample easy access points), and that each part is perfectly fit together. Not 99%, 100% air tight. That’s what we do.
All ducts are required to be securely supported by non-combustible duct bracing and supports. They need to carry the gravity and seismic loads as per code requirements. Under no circumstances are fasteners to penetrate the duct.
In New York City, commercial kitchen exhaust ducts often run inside a shaft enclosure. Those enclosures are typically constructed of gypsum board, plaster, concrete, or ceramic tiles. They too must be of an approved, continuous fire-rated nature.
