London, United Kingdom – WEBWIRE – Friday, December 06, 2013

What has been considered safe for the domestic appliance market falls short of what is required for the transportable appliances and equipment market.

Allens Hire can go to the top of your list as a supplier for gas appliance hire as the EHA publishes a new Code of Practice which will improve the safe use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the hire sector.

The guidelines, from the Event Hire Association (EHA), are not intended to substitute other industry codes or documentation from the HSE or other authorities. Instead, they are designed to focus purely on the hire industry; and businesses that hire LPG in cylinders, or LPG powered appliances, for events.

They outline the requirements of the LPG and associated appliances in order to minimise the risk of harm to the hirer or the general public. As such it has never been safer to hire appliances for parties and events. The news is welcome in an area that has been fraught with confusion.

In addition to providing gas appliance hire and LPG cylinders for parties and events, Allens Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire is a member of the EHA. They have been heavily involved in developing the Code of Practice, as members of the EHA , along with other member companies.

Kevin McGuinness, owner of Allens Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire, said: “It’s been a privilege to work with the other members of the EHA involved in bringing this to fruition. 

“Representatives of the HSE, Calor, VOSA, and other member companies have all been involved and worked tirelessly to ensure that there is a standard specific to the hiring of LPG. 

“There have been conflicting opinions on what is safe for transportable appliances and equipment. It is an area that falls between commercial and domestic appliances and what the manufacturers’ or gas safe engineers’ advice is for these areas. In other words: what has been considered safe for the domestic appliance market falls short of what is required for the transportable appliances and equipment market.

“What is safe for commercially installed appliances is over and above what is necessary and sometimes practical for the transportable appliances and equipment market.”

Allens Hire is one of the few SafeHire accredited companies who must adhere to the standard to retain the accreditation. When companies choose Allens gas appliance hire they can be sure that they’re gaining a professional hire company and one that is certified safe and up-to-date with the latest safety practices, and that they can get the advice that they need on the safe use of the gas appliances available.

Appliances for hire include gas fryers, stoves, BBQ, ovens, hot water dispensers and even hog roasts.  Allens have a comprehensive selection of kitchen equipment available to hire for the London area and the south coast.
