access for replacement and ensure that clean filters are installed after
final testing.

3-48

3.

Ventilators

a.

Power Roof Type - Inspect for: service access door; flashing at
curbs is watertight; operation of automatic dampers; and direct
discharge of fan away from air intakes or exhaust outlets. For
fume hood, stack must extend 8 feet above roof level.

b.

Gravity type - Check for free rotation.

c.

Back draft dampers - Check for felt on edges of blades and
condition of blades.

d.

Check goosenecks and rain hoods for flashing and bracing and
that goosenecks face away from the wind.

e.

Screens - Check mesh size.

4.

Duct Work Construction

a.

Check material thickness and bends for center line radii.

b.

Check vanes in right-angle elbows.

c.

Ensure tightness of installation against leakage and vibration.
Specifications may require testing.

d.

Check transitions for no slopes exceeding 1 in 5. If greater
slope is necessary, provide splitter vanes.

e.

Check for obstructions inside duct work prior to operation of
system. If absolutely necessary to run pipes or conduits through
ducts, they should be encased in streamlined sleeves. If
obstruction is more than 15 percent of the cross-sectional area,
increase area to maintain the original cross-section.

f.

Check access doors at all fire dampers, automatic dampers,
coils, filters, heaters, thermostats, or any item that requires
servicing. Verify that doors are airtight, securely fastened,
accessible and can be fully opened.

5.

Duct Work Erection

a.

Check lock seams and breaks in duct work for cracks. Reject
damaged ducts.

b.

Verify that drive slide ends are cut square and thoroughly
beaten over. Ensure that “S” Slips are installed so the interior
piece is in direction of air flow.

3-49

c.

Inspect hangers for proper support and spacing.

d.

Check canvas connections for weight, fireproofing, slack, and
airtight seams. Canvas should not be painted.

e.

Check applications of sound-absorption lining. Check for non-
flammable cement and taped exposed edges.

f.

Mark butterfly damper rods.

g.

Check multi-louver damper blades for bearings and closing.
