All our flue-less gas fires are equipped with flame failure devices. This ensures that the gas supply is automatically switched off should the pilot light cease burning. Our flue-less gas fires also have an oxygen depletion sensor which will switch off the fire if it detects a low level of oxygen in the room.
These safety devices make these units very safe to use. As flue-less gas fires consume oxygen and produce Carbon Monoxide / Dioxide, adequate air supply is essential to ensure peak performance from them. Please refer to the table detailing the minimum room size our flue-less appliances should be installed in. It is ideal that some ventilation occur, either in the form of air bricks or gaps around doors / windows, so that fresh air can be introduced and stale air removed. Chat to the salesman or gas installer you are using regarding the requirement for your application.
It is illegal to install any flue-less gas fire in a bedroom or bathroom. In the event you wish to install one of our fires in a bedroom or bathroom a flued gas fire must be used.
Our flue-less gas fires have recorded CO / CO2 ratios of approximately 4 to 25% of the maximum legal / safe limit set by the authorities of South Africa. These low figures put them at the forefront of technology in South Africa, which guarantees not only their safe usage but also virtually odourless operation, an essential component of a superior flue-less gas fire.
It is a legal requirement that all gas appliances be installed by a gas installer registered by SAQCC-Gas. Please verify that your installer is registered by asking to see his "drivers licence" style registration card.
