Averus inspects your emergency lights and exit signs in accordance with Life Safety 101 requirements, including a required 90-minute load test.
It is critical that your business’s fire alarm systems are functioning properly. Fire alarm systems provide early warning that can prevent tragedy and automatically place fire calls in case of an emergency. This not only ensures the safety of you and your customers, but ensures minimal damage in the event of a fire. Averus inspects your system to comply with NFPA 72 plus all state and local fire codes.
In those first moments of a fire before help arrives, a sprinkler system can prevent a fire from getting out of control. It also becomes the first line of defense when a building is unattended. Regular maintenance, inspection and pressure testing are essential to help ensure a sprinkler system operates properly when needed. Averus takes care of all the details, inspecting sprinkler systems in accordance with manufacturer guidelines, NFPA 13, NFPA 25 and all state and local codes.
Many businesses don’t realize the importance of properly maintaining and inspecting their backflow prevention assembly. If not tested regularly, a backflow assembly malfunction could contaminate your local water supply, leaving you vulnerable to unnecessary liability. Averus performs routine testing to ensure you comply with all state and local codes.
Grease Filter Replacements for Exhaust Hoods
Averus provides UL listed, replacement filters for your hood: aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized, spark-arrestor, as well as custom gap fillers. Our baffle grease filters reduce the amount of grease-laden air that escapes into the ductwork and exhaust system. These filters also serve as a firebreak, controlling cooking flare-ups by minimizing flame penetration beyond the filter area. Did you know, a clean filter can remove up to 35% of grease laden-vapors from your exhaust?! Clean filters also provide a cooler work environment in the kitchen. We take filters seriously, it is important that you never cook with gaps or missing filters! Call us today to order at 800-393-8287.
Access Panel Installation
If we had a fairy godmother in the construction industry, we would wish for all exhaust ductwork to run straight from the hood to the fan. Until our dreams come true, we have to focus on making your existing ductwork accessible, because if we can’t reach it, we can’t clean it. Averus can provide suitable access to your kitchen exhaust system to ensure proper and thorough cleaning, often we can install these items without the use of other trades people, but when needed we are happy to coordinate our efforts. Per code, access is required at every turn of the duct, as well as long runs of horizontal and some vertical. Averus installs only UL-listed access panels, as required by NFPA 96.
Fan Hinge Retro Fitting
In accordance with NFPA 96, Averus will install hinge kits on the base of the exhaust fan. Fans can then be safely tipped and cleaned without damage to the fan, conduit or the roofing system, resulting in a longer fan life. Unhinged fans must be removed from their curbing to clean the fan blades. Fan access doors can also be installed to clean the tops of the fan blades.
