Bespoke Gas Detection in Boiler Rooms

Boiler Room Gas Detection

With 25 years of experience, Gas Alarm Systems provides a full turnkey solution for gas detection in boiler rooms and energy centres. By drawing on decades of specialist expertise, we’re able to offer a comprehensive service, designing and delivering cost-effective solutions that are tailored to your individual needs.

Our experience encompasses boiler rooms and energy centres across a wide range of settings, from smaller environments such as schools and community centres, all the way up to large installations on commercial or industrial sites. Whatever the nature of your premises, you can trust our gas detection systems to provide reliable early warning and protection for your staff against the threat of toxic gases, giving you complete peace of mind.

Boiler Room Toxic Gas Detectors

Our boiler room toxic gas detection systems utilise a number of highly sophisticated components, including a central control panel, and anywhere from 1 to 16 incredibly precise gas sensors. This means that when they detect that toxic or flammable gases have reached unsafe concentrations, these gas detection systems are able to autonomously interface with plant safety systems and shut down operations to minimise further danger while the area is evacuated.

Each of the individual boiler room gas detectors constantly feeds information to the system’s central control panel, which is designed to clearly and efficiently communicate the level of risk to onlookers in real-time. In both addressable and conventional systems, this central control panel is typically positioned immediately outside of the potential hazard area, allowing users to safely assess the environment before entering.

The dangers of boiler rooms

Our toxic gas detectors excel at protecting people from two of the most prevalent gas hazards present in boiler rooms: asphyxiation and combustion.

Asphyxiation is an especially potent danger, especially in areas where there may be faulty or leaking boilers. Gas detection systems are widely used to monitor for the fugitive release of fuel gases in boiler rooms, such as LPG, natural gas, and Carbon Monoxide, which is formed as a by-product of combustion and associated with inefficient boiler processes.

The colourless and odourless qualities of many of these gases make them otherwise highly difficult to detect until they reach harmful concentrations, making gas detectors effective and vital measures for safeguarding human health. They can also provide peace of mind in environments where boiler flues pass through other rooms before venting, by monitoring the potential for gas leakage across a number of affected rooms.

Since certain toxic gases can also be combustible, our gas detection systems can protect boiler room employees from the risks of fierce fires, or even deadly explosions.
