A functioning rooftop grease containment system is the number one piece of equipment that will prevent grease spills on your roof. Kitchen exhaust fans are designed to remove grease vapors from your commercial kitchen. If you do not have a rooftop grease containment system installed, the grease will eventually end up on your rooftop where it can become a safety hazard, an environmental hazard by running into your gutter system, or even attract rodents and other pests.
Both rooftop grease spills and enviornmental hazards caused by grease spills cost restaurants thousands of dollars per year. Controlling rooftop grease contamination is an issue every commercial kitchen deals with. Addressing the safety and environmental issues posed by a rooftop grease contamination is necessary for every commercial kitchen.
