The AGS Kitchen Interlock Range protects the staff of commercial kitchens from gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. It ensures the gas solenoid valve cannot be opened in a kitchen until the fans connected to the panel are operating. The units also include built-in connectivity for ancillary components and systems.


AGS manufactures a line of gas detectors. Whether detecting carbon monoxide, natural gas, LPG or carbon dioxide, AGS sensors use modern digital design and do not need on-site calibration or end-user set up,  saving time and money.

Merlin Flush Mounting Kit

The Merlin Mounting Kit (MK) permits a flush mounting for the Merlin Gas Control Panel enclosure in classrooms and commercial kitchens. The space pressure reference port eliminates drilling separate holes and running tubing long distances. The Merlin MK comes with eight pre-drilled holes perfectly located for easy mounting and cuts installation time in half, and an aesthetically appealing unit emerges. The mounting kit is made of steel and finished in white and complements the Merlin control boxes.
