hellsLancashire firm S&S Northern, based in Coppull, has supplied its Merlin gas safety system to the infamous kitchen of Hells Kitchen 4. The hit ITV series starring celebrity Chef Marco Pierre White is back on British screens and features a new line up of celebrities cooking competitively in front of a specially invited celebrity audience. The contestants include Anthea Turner, Ade Edmonson and Bruce Grobellar and Miss Dynamite.

The safety system installed included the Merlin 1250s panel, which interlocks the gas valve with the kitchens ventilation system. The Merlin 1250 panel has a built-in current monitor that ensures the fan is running before the gas valve can open, this is required to ensure compliance with BS 6173. The standard, which is health and safety driven, states that gas should not be used if the ventilation system is not working and applies to either new kitchens or kitchens which are undergoing a major refurbishment.

S&S Northern Director Steve McMahon commented: We love the Hells Kitchen TV show and are delighted to have been selected to help ensure the safety of so many celebrities as they do culinary battle.
