Roofin’ It? Here’s How to Stay Safe

It’s May, the world is in bloom, and after a wet winter, people are tired of roughing it. They’re eager to eat out and schmooze. City dwellers without backyards may even hang out on their rooftops, catching a breeze and enjoying the moonlight.

But if your restaurant business is “roofing it”, you’re really roughing it. Here’s why: The roof may be a cool spot to spend time when the temperature sizzles, but it’s a perilous place for storing grease and oil. Fats, oil and grease (FOG) may be destroying your roof and creating a real fire hazard.

What’s more, FOG will typically make its way into your drains. With more cities and states passing legislation aimed at protecting storm drains, you could be liable for expensive fines.

Fortunately, Impact Absorbents has the solution: the Grease Catcher System. With XSORB’s rooftop grease protection system you’ll never have to worry about spill clean up, because this lightweight, easy to use spill containment unit puts an end to dangerous FOG. And by containing all that cooking excess, Grease Catcher also protects drains.

The revolutionary Grease Catcher consists of hydrophobic, grease absorbing “pillows” that are fireproof and adhere to EPA standards for absorbents. Once they capture grease and oils, they never leak, even in heavy rain!

And the Grease Catcher System is a snap to install: just follow the easy instructions, and soon your grease catcher pillows will be snuggled inside their grease catcher tray, an attractive and fully automatic spill containment alternative to haphazard rooftop storage. So you can focus on what you do best: cooking up a storm, and using your restaurant rooftop to grow herbs for your one-of-a-kind burgers.
