The system has been installed in the show’s kitchen in time for the fourth series starring chef Marco Pierre White and celebrity contestants Anthea Turner, Ade Edmonson, Bruce Grobellar and Miss Dynamite.
The safety system installed included the Merlin 1250s panel, which interlocks the gas valve with
the kitchen’s ventilation system. The Merlin 1250 panel has a built-in current monitor that ensures the fan is running before the gas valve can open, this is required to ensure compliance with BS 6173.
The standard, which is health and safety driven, states that gas should not be used if the ventilation system is not working and applies to either new kitchens or kitchens which are undergoing a major refurbishment.
S&S Northern Director Steve McMahon said: “We love the Hell’s Kitchen TV show and are delighted to have been selected to help ensure the safety of so many celebrities as they do culinary battle.”
