Gas Interlocking Systems
At BFES, we are trained to keep you safe. The objective of all gas interlocking systems is to ensure safe working conditions in kitchens. The cooking process within a commercial kitchen generates many harmful bi-products, all of which are required to be kept within safe limits, by operation of the ventilation system. If a mechanical system fails or isn’t working correctly, the environment may become unsafe or unfit for work. It’s important to make sure all natural and mechanical ventilation systems are working effectively.
Commercial kitchens should have an appropriate interlocking system between the mechanical ventilation system and the operation of gas appliances – failure of the system causes the gas supply to shut down.
Where there is no interlocking of the ventilation system and gas supply, BFES can help. We’ll assess whether a risk is likely to arise and, if so, make sure it is prevented or controlled appropriately. There are large numbers of installations that do not comply with BS 6173 or the law.
