Utilities supplying natural gas and propane use Firebag® thermal shutoffs to protect residential and commercial dwellings with a level of fire safety previously not available. By installing a FireBag thermal activated shutoff, prior to the gas meter, these utilities protect the safety and property of their customers and first responders in the event of a fire.

FireBag Thermal Activated Shutoffs are available in multiple piping configurations and sizes to accommodate the varying piping requirements of a natural gas or propane system. A recommended FireBag piping orientation and design illustration is highlighted as follows or simply contact your local Firebag distributor for additional information and specifications:
