S&S ensures kitchen safety in prestigious Manchester restaurant
Rosso’s, the restaurant in Manchester owned by Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand, has installed a new gas-safety system in its kitchen. Supplied by S&S Northern the new gas-interlock system ensures that staff working in the kitchen are not exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide from gas cookers if the ventilation system is not working. The Merlin CT1250 system was installed by Combi-Vent of Denton.
Adam Brewster of Combi-Vent explained, ‘Rosso’s contacted us to fit a new gas-interlock system when they discovered the one that had been fitted did not work properly and was incorrectly wired. Obviously a top restaurant like Rosso’s was keen to ensure safe working conditions for staff, so we chose S&S Northern’s Merlin CT1250 system for the project.’
All new and refurbished commercial kitchens in the UK are required by law to have a fully functioning gas-interlock system that meets BS 6173.
Steve McMahon, managing director of S&S Northern, says, ‘We work with a wide variety of hospitality and food-service companies across the UK — from Michelin-star restaurants to multi-national fast-food outlets and small take-aways. Recently we have supplied to projects at Rivington Services, Old Trafford Cricket Club, the Pizza Hut Delivery chain and the House of Lords.’
