Bosch Commercial & Industrial mandate carbon monoxide detectors for cascade flues
Bosch Commercial & Industrial have announced that anyone installing their boiler systems using cascade flues, where there is more than one appliance, will be required to include a carbon monoxide (CO) detector.
Given CO detectors that incorporate boiler shutdown are more readily available, the company now considers them state-of-the-art and an essential way of ensuring CO incidents are identified and dealt with almost immediately, protecting the end user.
The requirement covers cascade flues as they have a naturally higher level of risk than a single boiler and will only be for new installations, not a retrospective requirement. This will affect the manufacturer’s Condens 7000 WP, 7000 F and FP range, GB402, and Condens 8000 F boilers.
Pete Mills, Commercial Technical Operations Manager, commented; “It may seem like a no-brainer that CO detectors should be included on cascade boiler systems to protect end users from CO, however, there is no national mandate for them to be included”.
