Emergency & Exit Lighting

A self contained breathing apparatus, or SCBA, is often used by emergency personnel like firemen, or rescue personnel who need to have breatheable air. Generally, SCBA has three different parts, including a regulator, an inhalation connector, and a high pressure tank, which are all connected to a frame.

Gas Meter Repair
Gas meters are pieces of equipment designed to protect people from unseen hazards that may exist in workplace environments. It is very important to worker safety that these parts are maintained and calibrated properly.
Gas meter (monitor) inaccuracy due to improper irregular calibration can lead to serious accidents. Exposure to excessive levels of toxic gas or an where there is a lack of oxygen can cause workers illness and in the worst case scenario, death.
Uses of Gas Meter Repair
The only way to guarantee that a Gas meter (monitor) will detect gas accurately and reliably is to test (calibrate) it with a known concentration of calibration gas.
Approved Fire Protection sells repairs and calibrates most manufacturers Gas meters.
