The FIRE GUARD is manufactured with heavy 24 gauge Galvanizes steel throughout, including the baffles themselves. Two layers of baffles are carefully aligned to eliminate the direct passage of flame and grease through the filters. The heavy gauge makes all the difference when it comes to a superior baffle filter. Secured in place, the baffle pad will not shift or bend when being handled. Because of the extra weight, the filter won’t vibrate when installed.
The maximum temperature this filter can handle is 450 degrees F. Anything more could cause damage to the filter.
If you are in need of a higher temperature Grease Filter, the Fire Patrol “S” (Stainless Steel) would be what you are looking for. This filter can handle temperatures up to 900 degrees F.
