Grease Trap specializes is grease containment for the roof of thousands of restaurants utilizing our custom manufactured filter systems.
Our custom manufactured Grease Trap Filter allows water (rainwater and dirty-greasy water from vent hood cleaners) to flow through our custom manufactured filter, while encapsulating the grease from the exhaust fan.
Simply put, the Grease Trap Filter catches the grease while allowing water to pass through it, preventing new grease deposits from ever hitting the roof.
Once the system has been installed, the Grease Trap Filter needs to be changed during regular scheduled hood cleanings.

Our Grease Trap System is easily installed (less than 10 minutes). In addition, we currently provide substantial techn support that includes one-on-one problem solving phone calls and excellent web installation photos and instructions.








Grease Trap was designed by hood cleaners, for hood cleaners, and tested in real on-site environments for over 5 years. Grease Trap uses a natural ingredient as part of our filter system. This process produces a super-absorbent filtering product that resists water-based re-hydration, but absorbs and encapsulates oil and other hydrocarbons. What you end up with is a 100% organic, non-leeching filter that locks in grease and oil, and lets water pass right though. The Grease Trap Filter brings you the safest, non-leeching, proven method for absorbing oil and grease anywhere.



It works, more affordable, and it’s guaranteed. Our systems are more effective than any other competitor on the market. Because we custom manufacture our products we are also able to make our systems more affordable than other companies. In addition, we guarantee our customers (restaurants and hood cleaners) 100% satisfaction.


Depending on a multitude of factors, Grease Trap has many different solutions to the problems caused by exhaust fan grease.

In addition, we offer a inexpensive “GET AQUAINTED KIT” built for hood cleaners. Please review the various Grease Trap PRODUCTS below.

Listed below, you will find descriptions and pictures in order of the most commonly used approaches by Grease Trap and hood cleaners.


Grease Trap Pail System (Medium & High Volume Fan)
The Grease Trap Pail System is our most commonly used solution for grease containment. The Pail System adapts to the grease drain found on the many different styles of exhaust fans. You can view it’s various adaptations.

On average, the pail needs to be replaced during regular hood cleanings depending on the volume of the restaurant. The original adapters and hose stay, while the new pail is connected taking less than a minute to re-install. It is very easy and clean to take the pail off/on the roof making it the preferred system for hood cleaners.

The Grease Trap Pail System has the custom manufactured filter medium inside the pail. The pail has 16 drain holes allowing water to pass through it at a high volume. During cleanings, hood cleaners are encouraged to keep the Grease Trap Pail connected to the drain and “wash the dirty water and grease through the old filter while cleaning” and before installing a new filter, which helps prevent a dirty mess and EPA violations.







Grease Trap Rack System (Medium & High Volume Fan)

The Grease Trap Rack System is our second most commonly used containment system due to it’s versatility and adaptability. The Rack System adapts to the grease drain found on the many different styles of exhaust fans. You can view it’s various adaptations.

The Grease Trap Rack System has the custom manufactured filter (aka “pillow”) inside the rack. The rack has a built in drain that allows water to pass through the system at a high volume. During cleanings, hood cleaners are encouraged to keep the old filter in the rack system in place while “washing the dirty water and grease through the old filter” while cleaning and before installing a new filter, which helps prevent a dirty mess and EPA violations.

During installation only, the Rack System is usually screwed into the vent or curb under the drain spout for the exhaust fan. After the initial installation of the rack, only the pillow (filter) needs to be replaced during regular scheduled hood cleanings depending on the volume of the restaurant. The pillows are inexpensive making this option one to consider for your restaurants.

The replacement pillow is packaged in a plastic sack. Grease Trap recommends placing the old filter in the plastic sack to make the replacement as clean and easy as possible.

For extreme volume fans, Grease Trap has custom manufactured the “Double Deep Rack System” which has twice the absorption capacity as the original Grease Trap Rack System. Customers are encouraged to purchase the original Rack System first. If the volume of the grease exceeds the original Rack System, Grease Trap will send you a “Double Deep Rack System.


Grease Trap Econo 360 Perimeter System

(Down Blast Fan and Leaking Gaskets/Seals)

The Grease Trap Econo 360 Perimeter System provides an excellent and affordable solution to down blast fans and those fans that need grease containment completely around (360 degrees) the fan.

Down blast fans do not have a drain spout and some fans leak grease through gaskets and improper fittings. As a result, some fans have grease leakage on all four sides of the fan. The Econo 360 Perimeter has four rails that easily screws into the vent or curb on all four sides. (Grease Trap also offers a 360 Roof Perimeter System which actually sits on the roof and provides more containment than the Econo 360 Perimeter. You can see it’s installation instructions at install.php

The Grease Trap Econo 360 Perimeter has the custom manufactured filter (aka “boom sock or snake”) inside the four rails that make up the perimeter. After the initial installation of the Econo 360 Perimeter, only the boom sock (filter) needs to be replaced during regular scheduled cleanings depending on the volume of the restaurant. The boom socks are easily disposed of and provide an inexpensive solution to fans with grease leakage on all sides of the fan.


Grease Trap LV Box System

(Low Volume Fan e.g. Fry Fan)

The Grease Trap LV Box System is designed for fans that do not create a significant amount of grease, but still need grease containment.

The LV Box System screws into the vent or curb under grease drain found on the many different styles of exhaust fans.

The Grease Trap LV Box System has the custom manufactured filter (aka “small pillow”) inside the box. The box is not completely sealed on the corners which acts as a drainage system allowing water to pass through the system at a high volume. During cleanings, hood cleaners are encouraged to keep the small filter or pillow in the LV Box in place while “washing the dirty water and grease through the filter while cleaning” and before installing a new pillow, which helps prevent a dirty mess and EPA violations.

After the initial installation of the LV Box, only the small pillow (filter) needs to be replaced depending on the volume of grease created by that fan.

The pillows are inexpensive making this option one to consider for your restaurants. The replacement small pillow is packaged in a plastic sack. Grease Trap recommends placing the old pillow in the plastic sack to make the replacement as clean and easy as possible.





DRIPLOC Hinge Kits

Why Are Hinge Kits Necessary?
Grease Trap Hinge Kits are easily installed (10 minutes) by hood cleaners on exhaust fans to allow hood cleaners the necessary access to the exhaust system to clean it appropriately. Furthermore, Grease Trap Hinge Kits will help prevent costly repairs to exhaust fan. For installation instructions, visit install.php


HOW CAN HINGE KITS SAVE MONEY?
Grease Trap Hinge Kits allow the exhaust fan to be lifted back and supported during quarterly cleanings. Hood cleaners are forced to wrestle with the fan bowl and set it to the side of the vent. As a result, fan bowls are damaged, fans are knocked off balance, and wires are damaged. Even the most careful hood cleaners are prone to accident and without hinge kits installed, exhaust fans become unnecessarily vulnerable to these types of accidents.


WHY CHOOSE Grease Trap HINGE KITS?
Grease Trap hinges work and they are one of the most affordable hinge kit on the market. The Grease Trap Hinge Kit comes with the hinges, chains, and screws to install during a nightly cleaning. One Grease Trap Hinge Kit will be necessary for each exhaust fan. It only takes 10 minutes to install. For installation instructions, visit install.php

All Grease Trap hinges are made of heavy duty steel in order to last for years and to support the weight of most any exhaust fan. And most of all, because of their design, Grease Trap hinges are the easiest on the market to install. Time equals money.


SATISFACTION Guarantee!

If you order the Grease Trap Hinge Kit and are not completely satisfied with its performance, send it back and we will refund your money, GUARANTEED!


HOW DO WE SELL SO MANY HINGE KITS?
Grease Trap Hinge Kits work! They are a win-win for all involved.

Heres what we and our hood cleaners tell our clients. Your exhaust fan needs hinges." Here why:

1.
I cant clean your exhaust system appropriately without them.
2.
Due to claims for damaged exhaust fans, my insurance company is now requiring me to install these hinge kits on my fans because it decreases everyones liability.
3.
I need better access to the back of the fan blades to prevent it from becoming off balanced due to the carbon build up on fan blades.
4.
I need better access to the vent itself to clean it to NFPA standards. Top to bottom cleaning is required.
5.
I dont want to tear out your electric trying to clean your fan appropriately.
6.
I dont want to tear up your exhaust fan by denting it during my cleaning.
7.
It will save the restaurant money in the long run.
8.
I can install your hinge kit for $75-100 or you can get some other sheet metal guy to do it, but because Im going to be there during my cleaning, I can do it much cheaper. A sheet metal guy will probably charge you $200-300 to come out and do it for you. Regardless of who does it, it needs to be done ASAP.

They are used by vent hood cleaners to quickly hang plastic during the job on metallic and many non-metallic surfaces.

SUPER STRONG

The magnets used in the GRIPLOC System have, on average, 200 times the pulling force of the regular magnets.

MULTIPLE SURFACE USE
Even when you encounter low-grade Stainless Steel and many other non-metallic surfaces, by using two GRIPLOC Magnets together you have the power to pull through the surface and hang the plastic just as well





DURABILITY
Regular magnets are very brittle and after repeated use they will chip, crack and break. The magnets used in GRIPLOC System are incased in an industrial aluminum case that protects them from damage. The aluminum case also gives you the leverage needed to easily handle and remove the magnets from surfaces.

Hood cleaners don’t lose GRIPLOC Magnets. First of all, they are big enough that they are not easily misplaced. Secondly and more importantly, your spray techs will NOT lose them because he will NOT want to be without them. If he lost these magnets, it would be like him losing his spray wand. He won’t want to lose these magnets.
