There is now an essential need to be compliant with TR19® Grease Standards. Ventilation supply and extract ductwork must be designated at one of three levels, according to the area of the building that it serves. Each system must be classified as high, medium or low, in order to reflect the purpose and function of that area of the property. This means that there can be different classifications for individual zones within the same building or complex.
TR19® Grease Standards is an ideal guide to ensure that ventilation systems are properly maintained. It is especially important for kitchen ventilation due to the elevated levels of grease deposits in extract systems, which can lead to increased fire risks. Certified adherence to the standards dictated by TR19® Grease Standards will provide proof that the ventilation system in a building is safe and well maintained, which is vital for securing insurance policies and preventing prosecutions.
