As you can see in the images above, the Micro-Hinge caused the fan base to completely snap in the corner at its edges and bend in the center. It’s not a rule by the NFPA that the hinge must cover 60 percent of the fan base, that is just our own philosophy so that we can best protect the fan, its base, the roof, and, most importantly, people.
If you ever have questions about what kind of hinge will properly fit your fan base, we would love to help you figure it out! Our passion is protecting your investments, our environment, and the people we work with. You can always count on Omni Containment Systems for all of your roofing questions and needs.
Bonus: One more picture from The Micro-Hinge, showing a break near the spout.
