No, the GLF will not support combustion. Instead of burning freely when touched by flame, the filter chars and smolders. When it is removed from the source of the flame, it will self-extinguish.
That depends on the cooking device used under the filter. Because some cooking devices/methods produce more grease particulates than other devices, the filter-changing frequency will vary. The benefit of the GLF is they do not expire with time, so a filter does not have to be changed until it is fully utilized. Also, an initial filter change schedule is provided with the installation of your GLS.
Yes, the filters can be easily installed and removed from the brackets using the Grease Lock Mounting Tool. They are easily removed from the hood and easily re-mounted while standing on the floor so climbing on equipment or ladders is not required. Additionally, the GLF is non-toxic and made from all natural materials. It is recommended that the filters be changed in the morning prior to heating the cook line to avoid contact with any hot equipment.
No, the GLS has been thoroughly tested and does not create any significant pressure drop airflow problems. Therefore, using the GLS allows you to use your existing fan motor in your hood and does not require a costly replacement for a larger capacity motor.
The GLS is designed to significantly reduce the buildup of grease inside your kitchen hood and ducts, and on your roof.
The frequency of cleaning is sometimes regulated by local jurisdictions. You should have your ductwork and extractor cleaned whenever buildup of grease is present. If the GLS is properly maintained then you should experience a much cleaner duct and extended periods between cleaning.
No. The used filters can safely be disposed of in your normal trash receptacle. The GLF fibers are biodegradable with significant benefits accruing from returning it to the earth as a fertilizer, rich in nitrogen and sulfur. (Source: Wool as a Technical Fiber, J.Text.

No. The Grease Gutter was designed to perform in the harshest of conditions
During normal cleaning and maintenance, parts of the fan wear and loosen leaving gaps where grease will leak out onto the roof.
Not if the replacement fan is the same size as the original because the Grease Gutter mounts to the curb not the fan itself.
