Air King FR fans include Energy Star and humidity-sensing models
By Anthony Capkun
April 5, 2013 – Air King’s UL263-listed fire-rated fans are rated for use in combustible (wood frame) construction and, according to the company, have been successfully tested by UL in “more truss designs than any major manufacturer”. The fire-rated exhaust fan series features a three-part system that includes a housing, motor/blade/metal grill and damper. The 4-in. round spring-loaded metal damper protects against back drafts. These fans install using the included adjustable hanging brackets. The all-metal grill is low-profile and durable, says Air King, with a painted, white finish. Included among the fire-rated models are Energy Star-qualified fans, single- and dual-speed fans, humidity-sensing fans, and are available as contractor packs.
