UMASS Medical School

Atlantic Air Products & Schebler Chimney Systems provided pre-construction services to RDK Engineers on an extensive kitchen upgrade for the Umass Medical School. Schebler provided product selection & system sizing to RDK. Schebler’s Fyre-Guard® UL-1978 Listed / UL-2221 Classified prefabricated grease duct was selected as the grease duct risers were routed through non-fire rated shafts. As the design advanced it became apparent that round grease duct would not fit in the long horizontal runs from the shafts to the kitchen hoods. The design team turned to Schebler’s SlimVent® product line. Slim Vent® is a UL-1978 zero clearance/UL-221 two hour rated grease duct. Schebler designed & provided cleanouts, meeting NFPA-97 & local code requirements.
