  • Consideration and placement of gas detection systems
    International Gas Detectors
    Unlike fire systems that have a specific standard for installation and placement, EN54, there is no similar standard that exists for gas detection. Gas Detection systems only have industry approved best practice guidance notes for locating, placement and number of gas detectors. This is due to the complexity/speciality of gas detection due to the vast amount of gases being detected, over 400 gas...
