If you need a gas line connection for your range, fryer, or other piece of equipment, these gas hoses will keep them hooked up correctly. Gas hose kits are assembled to create an easy assembly for joining your commercial equipment to the gas line. Fryers, ranges, and ovens use gas hoses, as they rely on gas to operate. Gas hoses may be 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, or 72 inches. By measuring the distance between the equipment and the wall, you can determine the hose length you need. Equipment mounted on casters will need to have a few inches added to guarantee it can be moved comfortably. If the equipment is mounted on casters, a flexible gas hose can be used. This allows the equipment to be rolled out and allows for easier cleaning and maintenance.
Health codes now require assembly with flexible connectors due to equipment being positioned on casters. These flexible gas connectors make it easier to the appliances for sanitation purposes and cleaning. Gas hoses like the Dormont Blue Hose® are made of flexible, corrugated steel for strength and consistency. These flexible connectors were designed to avoid a potential hazard when moving equipment in your kitchen. An antimicrobial coating is added to most commercial gas connectors to help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
The Dormont Safety Quik® connector was designed for a quick removal of your gas connection. It also adds safety, preventing the gas hose from disconnecting if the valve is still accidentally turned on. Innovative safety features like these ensure you’ll meet health inspector requirements, and keep your staff safe. Loose connections and damaged hoses are important to check for when installing your gas connector. Gas leaks can be very dangerous!
