The A1 Filter Box was invented by the team at A-1 Power Steamers, with the goal of reducing the impact that the restaurant industry has on the environment. A-1 Power Steamers, our professional hood cleaning company founded almost two decades ago, invented the product in response to a direct need for a better, more sustainable way to clean commercial hoods and hood filters.

A1 Companies are a family-owned and operated brand with an avid passion for protecting and enjoying the outdoors.

Reducing the grease and cleaning chemical pollution that makes its way into our waterways is our highest priority.

We care deeply about the impact these issues have on both our customers’ businesses and to the environment. So, we designed the A1 Filter Box Clean & Capture System — a comprehensive solution to this industry-wide problem. Just as important, our product is helping to greatly reduce the damage to and pollution of our waterways and our wildlife.

We truly believe the A1 Filter Box clean and capture system will revolutionize the industry by providing restaurants and commercial kitchens their first viable option to properly clean hood filters and kitchen equipment. Designed for simple integration into any working kitchen, the A1 Filter Box is a beautifully crafted and essential component for any restaurant wanting to reduce their environmental footprint.
