Insist on CaterSense solid fuel safety,
for your charcoal grilles & pizza ovens  
Carbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas produced by incomplete combustion. It is always dangerous and can be lethal in low concentrations. Elevated levels of carbon monoxide are produced with most solid fuel appliances. A CO sensor if properly installed, calibrated and maintained forms part of an effective safety system. 
Carbon dioxide is also a colourless and odourless gas, however it is present in elevated levels with all types of combustion. It is dangerous and potentially lethal in high concentrations. A quality CO2 sensor if properly calibrated and maintained is a useful secondary sensor for use in all types of kitchens including ones using solid fuel appliances. 
A 3-hour fan run-on for trickle ventilation is recommended for a solid fuel safety system as solid fuel cooking appliances can continue to produce carbon monoxide for up to three hours following service. In combination a dormant start facility that can start and increases the ventilation rate when detecting elevated levels of CO or CO2 provides the best protection.
A CaterSense solid fuel safety system uses multiple corresponding sensors to ensure total safety. An integrated three-hour ventilation trickle function combined with CO and CO2 dormant start provides the most dependable system available.
