Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, poisonous gas, It is produced during the incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, such as oils natural gas, wood and coal. Once inhaled Carbon monoxide prevents the blood from carrying oxygen to the body's cells, resulting in asphyxiation.

Every year approximately 20 people die from CO poisoning caused by gas appliances and flues that have not been properly installed or maintained.

Still others also suffer ill health from the effects of non-fatal exposures..

It is only when the fuels do not burn correctly, that excess CO is produced, which is poisonous.

As you can not see, taste it or smell it, CO can kill quickly without warning.

Scienco are working in conjunction with one of the worlds leading manufactures to supply a reliable proved detection method which is calibrated and maintained regularly to ensure the instrument is working when you need it.
