Every year there are an estimated 50 deaths and 4,000 injuries as a result of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning caused by faulty gas appliances.

SwitchGuard is a breakthrough safety device that’s designed to automatically turn off faulty gas appliances by using its intelligent sensors to learn, store and act upon the alarm signal of a CO detector.

Its straightforward installation means that neither the gas supply or appliance have to be disturbed and its low cost makes for a comprehensive means of protection as well as assurance for consumers.

Created by registered gas engineer, Ben Kuchta of Quantic Corporation Limited, it’s designed with both installer and consumer in mind.

“Over the years I’ve dealt with many dangerous gas appliances and as a registered gas engineer, I have created a solution to protect consumers from CO poisoning. I’ve also developed SwitchGuard as a platform to include other protection devices I have in the pipeline too.”

It’s the first ever product launch by Ben which will be released worldwide and has enlisted the help of British manufacturer Synthotech Ltd.
