What you should know about Gas Interlock Systems

Whenever commercial gas cooking appliances are used, the extraction systems in commercial catering establishments must have a gas interlocking system in place to comply with BS6173 and IGEM/UP/19, CSE are an approved and recognised installer of all types of systems, all systems are installed by a qualified gas engineer. The purpose of the Gas Interlock Systems (GIS) is to prevent the gas supply from being turned on until ventilation is fully operational. Gas interlock systems have a pressure sensor which detects when the canopy is working correctly with sufficient air flow, once this is achieved the gas solenoid valve will open and cooking appliances can be used, all our electric gas proving control panels constantly monitor the flow, should there be a problem the panel will display the fault, the panel can then be reset in most cases. . Here at Catering Service Engineers we offer a variety of gas interlock systems to suit your needs.
