Catcher in the Grease

Catcher in the Rye is a classic coming-of-age novel, but despite many cartoon spoofs on the title, the story isn’t about rye bread, or any other kind of food. It’s not even about a catcher (as in baseball), but alludes to a mishearing of popular song lyrics. The tale is iconic because teenage angst is timeless.

Speaking of food, however, something else that’s timeless is a restaurant’s ability to generate grease and the grease’s ability to destroy a rooftop, if that’s where you tend to store it.

While Impact Absorbents isn’t known for crafting literary masterpieces, we are peerless when it comes to protecting food service establishments from FOGgy weather: that is, the fats, oils and grease that can decimate your restaurant roof and create a real fire hazard. FOG also makes its ways into drains, creating health and environmental challenges. So we created a Catcher that is about food: Grease Catcher.

Our revolutionary Grease Catcher System protects your kitchen roof from damage or fire with specially designed “pillows” that absorb the grease and oils that drip from your kitchen exhaust fan. These pillows are hydrophobic, fireproof, and adhere to EPA standards for absorbents. Once captured, the grease and oils will not leach out, even when soaked in rain or snow. The Grease Catcher System is easy to install, lightweight, and won’t rust.

Whether your reading tastes run to literary classics or up-to-the-nanosecond blogs (or both), make sure your food establishment is perennially prepared for smart spill containment, with our Grease Catcher System. There’s nothing wry about that.
