Gas detection - ensuring gas safety

With increasing electrical costs, consumers are moving towards alternate energy sources such as gas. There is still, however a fear of gas and the risk of suffocation or even dangerous explosions due to gas leaks.

The Yale Gas Detector is an early warning device which activates an ultra-loud 85dB alarm and LED warning lights when it detects the presence of dangerous and ignitable LPG or Natural gas, where these gases are present over general safety levels. To ensure maximum safety, this gas detector complies with the EN standard EN 61010-1:2010 as well as SABS safety standard requirements.

It is vitally important to install your gas detector at the correct mounting height for detection, as these two gasses react differently in their natural state (LPG sinks and Natural gas rises). Plug sockets are not traditionally installed 30cm down from the ceiling or are strategically located close enough to where you would ideally like detection to occur. For this reason, the Yale Gas Detector is pre-fitted with a 1.5m power cord, making installation a breeze. No need to call an electrical installer…

Periodic maintenance is also an important factor for all gas detection products. Installations are often near cooking areas where airborne dirt and grime build-up occurs which in turn affects detection. The Yale Gas Detector has a removable grill which is easy to clean to ensure efficient detection all year round.
