What Sets Epic Inspections Apart

All our commercial gas safety check and inspections are carried out by our licensed Type A gasfitters experienced and trained in real commercial kitchens.

EnergySafe has strict guidelines and zero tolerance strategy for a number of items. We have an exhaustive checklist based exactly on EnergySafe’s instructions as stated here. All piping, hose assemblies, installations, tests, and clearances will be done according to guidelines and applicable standards.

From November 2016, gas applications involving high energy appliances with no thermostatic control, extended usage patterns, and where flue products discharge near or adjacent to a wall containing a combustible surface will require those appliances to be installed with a minimum 50 mm clearance from the adjacent surface.
