Grease Guard Rooftop Defense Systems®
Grease Guard Rooftop Defense Systems® are rooftop grease containment systems. They are installed around fat, grease, oil, & chemical producing exhaust fans and ventilation equipment. They are designed to collect and effectively prevent those discharges from damaging rooftops, providing fuel to fire, and polluting our water supplies amongst other benefits.
How does it work?
The Advanced Filter Composite ® traps fats, oils, greases, and chemicals in ALL weather conditions by being both hydrophobic (water resistant) and oil sorbent (the ability to absorb oils). The Grease Guard is completely standalone, does not attach to the roof, and does not interfere with exhaust equipment operations.
Why do I need a Grease Guard?
The Grease Guard prevents harmful substances from reaching your sensitive roofing membranes and the environment. With Grease Guard in place you can potentially prevent:
• Slip/fall accidents
• Fire hazards (and their inherent dangers)
• Regulatory fines from the NFPA, EPA, or OSHA
• Liability and/or workman’s comp claims
• Roof damage (and the associated costs)
• Storm drain pollution
• Damage to the local ecosystem & wildlife
