Carbon Monoxide Kills

By January 12th, 2024Canadian Gas Safety

Did you know each year 400 deaths and 50,000 visits to the emergency room are caused by CO poisoning across Canada & the U.S.
Is your building and life protected from the Silent Killer Carbon Monoxide? You cannot smell or see Carbon Monoxide, but you can detect it.

While natural gas has a rotten egg smell that helps with detection, carbon monoxide is odorless. To detect it, a carbon monoxide alarm is required which is why you need a CO alarm in your home and business. The initial symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are flu-like, but without a fever. They may include dull headache, weakness, dizziness and nausea. High-level poisoning can result in vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision, loss of consciousness and in some cases, death.

If you want to add cost effective life safety and insurance to your next project, use the CGS Mini Merlin. It is the most affordable, adaptable and compact CO detection and isolation device on the market.

Designed as a standalone plug and play product, most commonly installed in boiler houses to identify problems with flues & boiler equipment, commercial kitchens for air quality monitoring plus natural gas leak detection for various applications. The Mini Merlin features modern components with multiple inputs & outputs to adapt the operation of the monitor, including panic & fire alarm shut down, BMS/BAS connectivity and utility isolation.
