Gas connection systems with quick disconnect are a real advantage for catering services and restaurants interested in expanding off-premise operations. In seconds, kitchens can be reconfigured, or caster-mounted commercial cooking equipment can be disconnected from its usual gas source for off-site use or easier cleaning and service.
More importantly, gas connectors ensure that commercial kitchens meet mandated safety standards for installation of gas appliances that are caster mounted or moved frequently. Manufacturers offer a wide range of commercial grade gas connector systems and accessories for fast, easy, safe and flexible disconnection and reconnection of gas appliances.
