Revolutionisers of the kitchen exhaust and ventilation market, Shepherd Filters offer a solution that is smarter, cleaner, safer and more environmentally friendly. Standard metal kitchen grease filters only stop 20 to 40% of grease vapours from entering the hood. Shepherd Filters capture up to 98% – meaning less grease build-up entering the plenum, ductwork, fans and roofs, and less risk of catastrophic fire. Shepherd Filters are quick and easy to install and can be disposed of in seconds – a welcome alternative to degreasing traditional filters. By heavily reducing grease build-up between cleans, Shepherd Filters helps you save on:

  1. Labour and contractor costs associated with metal grease filters and exhaust systems
  2. Kitchen duct cleans, which become less frequent and complex
  3. Water usage and harsh chemicals typically needed to maintain a clean kitchen exhaust system
  4. Maintenance and cleaning of rooftop fans, HVAC and other extraction equipment, resulting in more efficient operation.

Shepherd Filters are made from 100% wool, a renewable resource, and the filter media is carbon-neutral and will break down in landfill.
