The Shepherd Filters solution is revolutionary within the Kitchen Exhaust & Ventilation market by making it smarter, cleaner, safer and more environmentally friendly.
As opposed to metal kitchen grease filters that only stop 20-40% of grease vapours from entering the hood, Shepherd Filters capture up to 98%! This reduces the grease build-up that enters the plenum, ductwork, fans, and roofs dramatically and therefore minimises the risk of catastrophic fires. With grease build-up minmised between cleans, instant savings are made to:
Labour/contractor costs associated with metal grease filters & exhaust systems
Reduced frequency and complexity of kitchen duct cleans
A reduction in water usage and potentially harsh chemicals to maintain a clean kitchen exhaust system; and
Cleaner rooftop fans, HVAC & other extraction equipment equals efficient operation, less maintenance & energy savings.
Shepherd Filters eliminate the guesswork as to whether the kitchen exhaust system is dirty and a fire risk. A clean system being protected by Shepherd Filters will ensure that your business is compliant and fully covered by insurance as a cleaner kitchen exhaust system 365 days a year greatly reduces your risk of fire.
Quick, easy to install, and disposed of in seconds, changing Shepherd Filters is a welcome alternative to degreasing filters. Replace the filter media only when needed, saving staff time, and improving their daily routine. Customers can rest easy knowing that Shepherd Filters:

The filters are proudly made from 100% Australian wool, a renewable resource that is naturally fire-retardant and bio-degradable. The filter media is carbon-neutral and will break down in landfill.
Shepherd Filters come as pre-cut wool sheets in all standard commercial sizes. Wool’s flame-resistant properties make it an ideal fiber for kitchen grease filters, helping to reduce the risk of fire spreading. Wool is also oleophilic – meaning that it has an affinity for oils, making it a great choice for grease containment.
Shepherd Filters are used in conjunction with a specially designed UL1046 stainless steel 'baffle' frame that makes the filters easy to use and highly effective.
Shepherd Filters capture up to 98% of airborne grease without restricting airflow when the wool filter media and frame are used together.
