Gas Certificate of Compliance

Gas Certificate of Compliance Cape Town

Gas Certificate of Compliance in Cape Town.

Liquid Petroleum Gas, LPG, is a flammable and potentially explosive substance and the usage thereof requires strict adherence to safety regulations for the protection of property and life.

The use of Gas in our homes, for cooking and heating, is on the increase as an alternative to Electricity which is experiencing some supply reliability issues in South Africa.

We perform inspections of LP gas pipeline installations in order to certify their compliance with the SABS Regulations for LP gas installations (SANS 10087 – 1:2008). A Gas Certificate of Conformity will be issued for those installations that fully comply.

A Gas Inspection comprises of the following aspects:

Gas Cylinder storage to comply with safety zones.

SABS approved piping used and installed in the correct manner.

The installation of isolation and emergency valves.

Adequate ventilation at cylinder and inside rooms.

If SABS approved appliances are connected to the reticulation system

A pressure leak test to establish the system continuity.

Outside placement of gas cylinders for Hobs, Geysers, Fireplaces (External gas installation)

According to SANS 10087, the gas regulations state where a bottle can or can't be placed and how an installation may be completed.

The gas cylinders cannot be placed closer than 1m to a door, window or airbrick.

Gas cylinders cannot be placed closer than 2m to an open drain or man hole where the gas can gather if the bottle leaks.

Gas cylinders cannot be placed closer than 5m to an electrical point such as a DB board, motor, generator, pool pump etc.

Gas cylinders cannot be placed underneath a window unless the window is no less than 3m above. This distance can be reduced to 300mm if a non-combustible roof is placed between the window and the cylinder/s.

Gas cylinders cannot be placed closer than 1m to a boundary wall, unless the wall is a double brick "firewall" greater than 1.8m tall, with no ventilation gaps in the wall.

Gas cylinders may not be placed in a garage.
