Grease Containment Systems
A grease containment system is usually found on the roof where the kitchen hood exhaust fan is located. The job of the grease containment system is to collect and capture the grease and oil vapors that are pulled through the kitchen exhaust system. Without a grease containment system, these vapors can collect on an establishment’s roof, where they can cause damage to the roof structure as well as lead to environmental hazards from storm water run-off.
According to NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 96, commercial kitchens need to have a grease collection device applied to exhaust systems that do not inhibit the performance of the exhaust fan. Grease containment systems are serviced and cleaned during the regular hood cleaning service.
