Commercial kitchens must adhere to a number of regulations to ensure that the foodservice operation runs smoothly and safely - gas interlocking are one of the most important of these regulations.
Gas interlocking systems are manufactured and installed to ensure that the gas supply to the kitchen is shut off in the event of a fan failure.
With recommendations given out to commercial kitchen operators, it is advised that gas should not be available in a commercial kitchen if at the start, or during the course of the day the fans fail or are turned off.
Having the right gas interlocking components is not only a legal requirement to comply with regulations and legislation, but it also ensures that the operator is providing a safe cooking environment for all kitchen staff.
The Gas Solenoid Valve must be interlocked with the ventilation to ensure gas is not present if the fans are not working. If catering equipment is not fitted with Flame Failure Devices then a gas proving system should be fitted.
