KITCHEN ALARMS & VENTILATION
The ALS1 is our low-cost gas interlock providing a basic and reliable gas interlock system when you are working to a tight budget. The gas interlock panel offers unrivalled safety integrity with its unique hard-wired timer backup.
Maintaining the integrity of the kitchen ventilation system is critical for a safe working environment as specified in British Standard BS6173:2009.
The ALS1 is the only budget gas interlock on the market which has a timed interlock with hardware backup. This will shut off the gas valve if there is insufficient airflow to allow safe combustion. Thus ensuring a safe working environment and achieves compliance with BS6173:2009 and other standards including HVCA DW/172, GSIUR:1998 and Gas Safe TB140

Q – The old ALS1 did not have an emergency stop button on the front, why has this been added to the new ALS1?
There are bewildering range of standards/legislation relating to the safety of work equipment including PUWER, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. However, it is recommended that a mushroom head emergency stop button is located at the main console or interface with the user/operator. The ALS1 allows additional emergency stops to be connected and these can be located around the cooking area.
Q – Is the ALS1 supplied with airflow switches?
If required, we can supply the ALS1 with high-quality airflow switches. Our airflow switches are designed to offer longevity even in the hostile environment of a commercial kitchen.
N.B – Reducing the airflow can compromise pressure switch operation.
