Safety Shield Filters

Restaurant Kitchen Exhaust Safety - How It Works



Most people think of grease as a liquid, but grease can also travel by vapours and smoke. If the exhaust effluent is properly filtered, a large percentage of the grease is removed from the air stream, greatly reducing the amount of grease that will stick to the inside of the kitchen exhaust hood and reduce the risk of a grease duct fire, as well as reducing the need for kitchen exhaust cleaning.


Safety Shield Filters are easy to install, taking just a few seconds. They are used internationally and have successfully enabled customers to save money and reduce ongoing maintenance. The filters sit upstream in front of restaurant kitchen grease filters and capture up to an incredible 98% of the grease particles before they enter the kitchen hood system and require cleaning, making our filters among the best performing filters in the world. 

There is no special knowledge or tools required to fit or replace them, so it can be done by all staff members.

They are made from wool, which makes them not only fire retardant but also completely biodegradable.

How It Works

Fire Prevention

It’s not unusual for fires in restaurant kitchens to start in the kitchen exhaust hood system. The ignition of cooking materials account for almost half of all commercial kitchen fires and all most all of these (90%) get into the kitchen exhaust system.

Grease, dust and oil from cooking activities can build up in the grease hood filter if it is not regularly maintained with thorough kitchen exhaust cleaning, creating odour problems as well as a fire risk. It only takes 1/12 inches or 2 mm of grease build up to burn down a kitchen exhaust system.

Saves Money

Airborne grease is prevented from entering the kitchen hood exhaust system by the canopy filters and provides immediate savings by reducing labour costs associated with commercial cleaning metal grease filters, therefore reducing the number of kitchen duct cleanings dramatically.


Save energy with a cleaner kitchen exhaust system, hood, rooftop fans, HVAC and other rooftop equipment resulting in more efficient operation of the equipment, not to mention less maintenance. Wool is a renewable material source.

Our Filters are made from 100% Wool. The filter media is carbon-neutral and will breakdown in the landfill. In today’s world we all need to do our part to help the environment.

Features And Benefits

Saves energy

Having a cleaner exhaust system, rooftop fans, HVAC and other rooftop equipment results in more efficient operation of the equipment, not to mention less maintenance.

Saves your roof

The containment of grease-laden vapours occurs before they enter the exhaust system, eliminating the grease particles emitting from the rooftop fan. The necessity of rooftop containment systems is virtually eliminated. This saves money while extending the life of the roof itself.

Save on repairs and maintenance

Rooftop equipment will stay cleaner longer, i.e., HVAC coils, return air units etc. This equipment will not require the same frequency of cleaning and maintenance since the grease never makes it to the rooftop.
