What is the maximum room area that will be covered by a single monitor?
Every gas monitor installation should be risk assessed. The correct location of monitor(s) must consider the potential sources of gas leaks and the location of expected human occupation in the area. Where large areas must be monitored, it is often advised that no single monitor should cover a volume in excess of 80m3. The installation of more monitors should be considered where an area is complex in shape, filled with obstacles, has a lack ventilation or air circulation, or if there are
dead zones where gas can collect.
Assuming the device is used in a totally open area, no more than 10 meters should be between devices, however, each installation should be considered individually to account for the particular layout e.g partially enclosed areas, partition walls, obstructions, etc.
