Is a gas interlock system a legal requirement?
In 2009 a law was passed for gas interlock system to fitted in commercial kitchens. Making it a requirement by law for any commercial catering with natural gas appliances installed. Although for existing installation which in place before the year 2009 there are some discrepancies. Where no interlock system is required expect where all gas appliances installed have a flame failure device installed on the actual appliances.
And also for kitchen installed after 2009 and with gas interlock systems all appliances are still required to have a built-in flame failure device. If any of the appliances fitted doesn’t have a flame failure device then gas proving interlock system should be fitted.
