Lets Talk Gas Detectors…

Lets Talk Gas Detectors…

Most of us are educated on the importance of a smoke detector, but many people aren’t aware of the importance of a carbon monoxide (CO) detector and a gas leak detector.

Does your caravan have Gas Detectors fitted? If not, you may want to consider installing them.

The biggest risks to life inside your caravan are fire, carbon monoxide poisoning and explosions from leaking LGP gas

Carbon Monoxide (CO), a highly toxic gas that is colourless and odourless. CO is considered dangerous to human health If present in the air of your caravan in concentrations over 100 parts per million (PPM), causing disorientation, unconsciousness, and possibly death. Carbon Monoxide detectors should be positioned around bed head height. The Quell Carbon monoxide alarms are battery operated for easy installation.

While it is not as toxic as CO, Leaking LP gas can build up inside a caravan and it is extremely flammable and explosive in high concentrations. As LP gas sinks to the lowest point, a gas detector should be positioned at a low point in the caravan and likely require 12V wiring which can be done by an auto electrician.
