Overhead exhaust removal systems are an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for exhaust hose storage and accessibility. These systems incorporate various hose types (ranging from high-temperature silicone to medium-temperatures polyester) and lifting configurations to accommodate many different applications.
Fume-A-Vent offers two types of overhead exhaust systems: Simple Drop System (SD) and Retractable Telescoping System (RTS)
Simple drop systems (SD) are the most popular option for overhead exhaust systems because they are easy to install and more affordable than other alternatives like track systems. Fume-A-Vent simple drop systems make it easy to prevent accidents by storing exhaust hoses away from technicians and other nearby employees. Our simple drop lifting configurations include rope and pulley and spring cable balancers.
Rope & Pulley
Rope and pulley overhead systems provide seamless retraction and are excellent for lighter exhaust hoses. The hose clamps directly to the ducting system and is stowed using an elbow joint that suspends the hose.
Spring Cable Balancer
Spring balancer overhead systems are higher-end systems, known for their usability and high durability. Spring balancer systems are ideal for heavier exhaust hoses.
Retractable Telescoping Systems (RTS)
The most economical answer for overhead exhaust removal is the retractable telescoping system. The RTS incorporates three lengths of hose (6", 5", 4") that telescope into one another. The overhead telescoping system combines the aesthetics of a disappearing system with the economy of a simple non disappearing system.
Retractable telescoping systems store away in an overhead position and are secured by chains and hooks. The chains and hooks can also be used to secure the tailpipe adapter to the vehicle. RTS overhead systems make it easy to move throughout garages and service shops.
The Fume-A-Vent team can assist with the exact temperature, diameter, length of hose needed, and tailpipe adapter to meet the needs of your custom application. Complete the package by adding a direct-mount fan, which allows a complete stand-alone system or connection to ductwork and a central fan. It's important to select a storage and connection approach that is compatible with the building and consistent with the expected vehicle exhaust output.
