Asbestos is a highly toxic fibre which can cause severe illness including the rare and incurable cancer, mesothelioma. Asbestos fibres are most toxic in a powder form when they become airborne and can be inhaled. The thin needle like fibres embed themselves in the lungs and it is there that they wreak havoc on the body. Asbestos related illnesses can take years even decades to present yet that does not make them any less harmful or dangerous.
It is important to BG Heat to make sure our employees are fully aware of the nature of asbestos, the risks and how to appropriately deal with an asbestos situation. Training is absolutely essential to avoid unnecessary risks which could really cause lasting damage. As such, we regularly carry out training and our team have recently completed and passed Asbestos Awareness training provided by UKASL. This course is UKATA approved.

So what's the most efficient way to heat a large open industrial space?
Installing heating within large commercial spaces such as a factories, warehouses or industrial units could signify a number of problems witheffective and efficientheat distribution depending on the facility and size. If work areas are not heated equally or efficiently, the effect is an impact on staff welfare, running costs and energy wastage.
Warm air heating heats up the air as it passes through a heat exchanger and then spreads warm air evenly through the space by fan, to maintain consistent temperatures.
Options include suspended, floor standing, free blowing or ducted warm air heating systems, which offer excellent warehouse heating options.
Radiant tube heaters
, mounted overhead, produce infra-red radiant heat that is directed downward by a reflector.
Radiant heat can be controlled to direct heat only to areas of the building which need to be heated, thereby improving efficiency and reducing heating costs.
Large space industrial heating solutions can be tailored to meet your specific environment requirements, taking into account obstacles such as racking and high roofs.

Gas safety interlock systems are required in all commercial kitchens. Gas Safe regulations and BS6173 both require a gas interlock system to be fitted. This ensures that the commercial kitchen ventilation system is working before the gas is turned on. This prevents a build up of potentially poisonous gas combustion fumes in the kitchen which would be harmful to the health of kitchen staff and others within the premises.All new commercial kitchens must comply with BS6173 (2009) and GSIUR27.
All commercial kitchens installed after 2001 must comply with BS6173.
Our engineers can fit aninterlock system that cuts off the supply of gas should the kitchen mechanical ventilation system fail or if the ventilation is turned down below a pre-set safe level.
Gas equipment and services must only be installed, maintained and repaired by a Gas Safe registered installer.
