Covid 19 update: please be aware that our locking cooker valve service is suspended until further notice. The safety of our customers and colleagues is our priority at this time, and NGN will not allow gas engineers to enter customers’ properties unless critical work is needed. This page will be updated with further information when the situation changes. In the meantime, please do not fill out the below online form.
The simple safety device is fitted to existing gas cooker pipework. When the valve is locked, the gas supply to the cooker is stopped. This eliminates the risk of the cooker being unintentionally turned on or left on, and gives peace of mind to the carer or relative that the cooker can’t be used when they leave the house or the room.
The carer or relative can easily turn the valve on using the key when the cooker is required, enabling the vulnerable person to continue to use their gas cooker safely.
We provide this free service regardless of your gas supplier. You don’t need to change energy supplier or inform your supplier of the device. If the property is rented you will need to seek the permission of the landlord to have the work done.
