Gas convenience outlets allow for flexibility in the installation of natural gas appliances. Generally these products are used with outdoor appliances, but there is a model approved for indoor use as well.
Gas convenience outlets come standard with automatic shut-off valves with a safety interlocking feature. This feature prevents the user from disconnecting the appliance while gas is flowing. Some gas convenience outlets also come with a device that prevents gas from flowing to an appliance if the temperature reaches or exceeds 200º F.
Gas convenience outlets are used most commonly in residential and commercial environments where rearranging appliances may be necessary. An outlet will commonly be used with appliances such as gas grills, fire pits, or patio heaters. The outlet also allows quick disconnect so that the user can ‘unplug’ the outdoor appliance and store it for the winter.
III Equipment Options
Decorative covers for the gas convenience outlet are available in white, black and satin chrome plated. Convenience outlets can be surface mounted or flush mounted.
