These systems monitor airflow from the extraction canopy and their fresh air intake. They can do this by either flow monitoring or power monitoring of the fans. The system can be run either from the BMS (Building Management System) or via isolated control within the kitchen.
If a fan failure occurs within the kitchen, the interlock system interrupts gas supply to the appliances. This prevents the production of harmful levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Failsafe carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide sensors can also be added to an interlock system. Similarly, if there are problems with gas appliances or fresh air into the kitchen become impeded, the gas flow will be shut off.
It’s essential for health and safety to make sure your gas interlock systems are working correctly in compliance with the BS6173 standard. Failure to do so can invalidate your insurance and potentially lead to prosecution.
Our gas interlock system maintenance service ensures that your equipment is working exactly as it should. We can carry out annual checks as part of your regular equipment maintenance service, or we can conduct stand-alone inspections.
