On top of this solution helping to meet NFPA 96 regulations, it also helps them meet EPA regulations. When grease is allowed to spill out over a container that has an open top, where rainwater can get it, grease has a higher chance of overflowing onto the roof. This is damaging to the establishment as repairing or replacing a roof can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, but if grease is allowed to enter storm drains then the EPA can hit a business with a fine of at least ten thousand dollars. However, since Omni designed our filters to be hydrophobic, they only capture grease and allow water to pass through. This is great for our clients because it means they don’t have to replace their filters so often.
Finding solutions for rooftop grease containment isn’t only our job, it’s our passion. The puzzle and excitement of being able to create solutions out of hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of options always keeps us guessing. If you have a rooftop grease containment problem that seems to have no solution, make sure to contact Omni because we guarantee that we can find a solution for your needs. No feat is too big for Omni Containment Systems!
