Commercial Catering

Commercial catering

We provide gas engineering services to the catering industry. Our engineers are Comcat1,2,3 Comcat 4, Comcat5 qualified and have a good understanding of the needs of a commercial catering environment.

We install, repair, service and upgrade gas pipework and gas fired equipment in commercial kitchens. We also carry out annual gas safety checks and certification.

Gas safety interlocks

We also supply and install gas safety interlocks systems. Since 2001 it has been mandatory that all commercial catering establishments install a gas interlock.

Gas interlocks and proving systems, what are they?

Gas safety interlock systems are required in all commercial kitchens. Gas Safe regulations and BS6173 both require a gas interlock system to be fitted. This ensures that the commercial kitchen ventilation system is working before the gas is turned on. This prevents a build up of potentially poisonous gas combustion fumes in the kitchen which would be harmful to the health of kitchen staff and others within the premises.

If any gas appliances do not have Flame Failure Devices (FFD’s) fitted, then a gas proving system MUST also be fitted to comply with regulations.
