Safety Gas Detection are pleased to announce a significant new contract. The project involves the supply, installation and maintenance of oxygen depletion and carbon dioxide monitoring systems at the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute, Kings College, London.

The risks of oxygen depleted or carbon dioxide enriched atmospheres are ultimately fatal, with significant physiological effects if personnel are exposed even for short periods or to low levels.

The oxygen depletion system suppliers are based in Bamber Bridge Leyland, Lancashire.

Clients include Lancaster University, The University of Liverpool, The University of Manchester, Nanoco Technologies, University College London and The University of Wales Institute Cardiff.

Other typical clients include car park operators and businesses regularly using large refrigeration equipment.

The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute is one of Europe’s leading centres for interdisciplinary neuroscience research and is located at the heart of King’s College London’s Denmark Hill campus.

The Institute provides key research to help fast-track new treatments to patients affected by disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease and epilepsy.

The gas detection system specialists are celebrating after securing the contract and have recently installed the oxygen depletion and carbon dioxide monitoring equipment across multiple rooms, over four floors.

The individual local gas detection systems are networked to a centralised colour touch screen interface located in the reception area with links to the intelligent building management system.

“The benefits of our recent design are that it creates a very cost effective and information rich system, with the focus on localised functionality along with a remote monitoring facility using the very latest in communication technology,” explains Tim.

Tim added, “The use of the centralised touch screen interface overseeing full localised systems is a new development for us. It utilises control equipment (we have experience of) in a new way.”

The founder of the CO2 detection company, said: “Laboratories like Maurice Wohl require regular servicing and maintenance of their gas detection systems. They can fail and if they don't perform properly, staff working in the labs can die as a result of a lack of oxygen".

“The risks of oxygen depleted or carbon dioxide enriched atmospheres are ultimately fatal, with significant physiological effects if personnel are exposed even for short periods or to low levels,” warns Tim.

“Determining if such systems are required is a process of calculation and risk assessment; we offer free advice and assistance to help with specific projects,” he added.

“Our gas detection systems are manufactured in the UK and we provide a comprehensive six year warranty package to help end users fix their ongoing costs. We also maintain other manufacturer’s systems and provide high-tech systems with data logging facilities, e-mail and text message notifications with remote connectivity via secure internet VPN connections,” advises Mr. Holmes.

“All industries should be aware of the dangers of oxygen depletion. Research laboratories, car parks, contaminated land sites, swimming pools, and hospitals should pay careful attention to oxygen and other gas levels,” advises Tim.

Tim’s company also supply, install and maintain carbon dioxide sensors, CO2 detection systems, carbon monoxide alarms and CO gas detection equipment.

In addition Safety Gas also monitor refrigeration, flammable and toxic gases.

The specially designed gas detection systems can monitor more than one gas at a time and can cover multiple areas of buildings.

As well as providing free site surveys (with no obligation), risk assessments, alarm call receiving, maintenance, hardware installation and calibration the Lancashire based firm also services components from five of the most common suppliers: BOC, Crowcon, MSA, Quantum and GDS.
