Monitoring ground gas risk in warehouses


The multifaceted nature of warehouses provides challenge. Enourmous buildings house a synchronised system of processes, including a vast number of products being received, sorted, stored, and shipped via a complex network of people and transport. The fluidity of this operation depends on the provision of a safely constructed and actively monitored structure.

Managing ground gas risk in warehouses

The massive scale and layout of warehouses presents the need for large scale ground gas planning and protection. The round the clock nature of warehouse operations needs the right type of monitoring to ensure the safety of the facility, the people that work there and the assets it stores.
