Grease Ducts Fire Protection Installation

This duct is specifically designed to vent grease-laden vapors or smoke usually caused from cooking equipment such as stoves, deep fryers, and woks to outside of the facility. They are regulated by both maintenance and their construction, forming part of the building's passive fire protection system.

Evidence of compliance must be kept on file by the owner, and typically, the cleaning schedule is dictated by fire code or related safety regulations.
