GRM series rectangular duct with reduced clearances has been approved at UL under test standards UL 1978 & ULCS662. The GRM series offers a more economical rectangular duct when zero clearance is not required.
Van-Packer takes its rectangular grease duct back to testing again for reduced slope. We can now offer our ETL tested 2221 and our UL 1978 listed duct with reduced slope that far exceeds NFPA 96 standard for slope. This is one of the many reasons why our grease duct is the industry leader.
Van-Packer’s GRZ product line is no longer patent pending, we officially received our paperwork with patent number D 908,201. GRZ is the first rectangular duct tested to UL 2221 with a patent.

As you can see from this extensive history, Van-Packer has been a leader in the industry since 1944. We strive to stay ahead of the industry’s needs, to remain relevant to our customers, engineers, and contractors. You have our ear! We listen to your needs, and put you first.
