Anyone on here familiar with city code for commercial kitchens? I am having trouble finding an answer about exhaust hoods. The city website says the code has been replaced by ordinance 1404-99 but then skips right from 1403 to 1405. I have called the city everyday for several days and can get no help. Anyone how can help please PM me. Thanks.April 16, 2008 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #192025
which code are you using… the 2007 ohio building code? im assuming this is for columbus? or does your jurisdiction use the 2005 obc?April 16, 2008 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #192026
well maybe i can help, whats the specific question.April 16, 2008 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #192027
I am trying to figure out if I will need a type I or type II exhaust hood over a gas deck pizza oven. The store will be on High street somewhere between Broad and 5th. OMC says I need type II, but I found something from the city saying that NFPA standards override the OMC?April 16, 2008 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #192028
yeah i would contact a HVAC contractor. they would most likely give you free estimate. the health dept cant help you on that? all of the restaurants ive renovated never had the kitchens touched. so when it comes to equipment im honestly clueless.April 16, 2008 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #192029
who have you been contacting at the city? you should call the Building Services Division and ask to speak to a commercial building inspector… I’m sure he could answer your question (or give you a call back within a day).April 16, 2008 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #192030
I finally got someone at the manufacturer to give me a contact number at the city. Got right thru and had my question answered in a matter of minutes, OMC is correct. I guess it is all about having the right phone number. Thanks for your help.April 16, 2008 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #192031
Just as a question… what number/office did you originally call?
Did you try 311?April 16, 2008 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #192032
:lol: code questions on CU. Wow. Type II hood in your case since you are dealing with gas deck. If it was “wood burning” Type I would have been needed. Was that the answer you received?April 16, 2008 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #192033
I called the Building Services Division at 645-7433. 311 does not work on my VoIP phone and my cell phone thinks I am trying to find a contact.
And yes a Type II hood is the answer I received.
