Gas Cages & The S.A.N.S.

Apr 11th, 2019|

GAS CAGES Are Gas Cages Necessary For Compliance? I have decided to write this article on gas cages, the purpose of gas cages & what the legislation in South Africa has to say about them. The reason for me writing this article is because we have come across a few people that have been told, that domestic installations have to have a gas cage in order for their installation to be compliant. That is quite simply not true. Gas Cage Barden the Gas Guy9 First we need to know what the purpose of a gas cage is. The purpose of a gas cage is purely for theft and vandalism, in other words gas cages are used to prevent the theft of gas bottles & to prevent anyone from tampering or vandalizing the container and regulator set. What Does The S.A.N.S. Say? In the domestic sector, as it stands right now,  the S.A.N.S.

The C.O.C verifies that the gas pipeline, appliance and the gas container have all been installed correctly in accordance with the appropriate legislation. That all the correct materials have been used and are S.A.B.S. approved. That all safety distances have been adhered to. That the appliance is an approved appliance with all safety devices on it and that the entire system, from the tip of the pigtail through to and including the appliance is leak free & safe to use. Does the C.O.C. Validate the Installation? There seems to be a huge misconception in the market that because they have an L.P. Gas C.O.C.  For their gas installation, then it is compliant. Nothing is further from the truth. It is not the C.O.C. that validates the installation but rather that the installation validates the C.O.C. If the installation is not compliant the C.O.C. isn’t worth the piece [...]
