BRANZ Guideline January 2012 clearance from gas installations

When designing, specifying and installing gas appliances, the minimum requirements that must be met are given in NZS 5261:2003 Gas installations and G11/AS1.

These documents specify the criteria applicable to the installation of gas meters, appliances, and flues (refer NZS 5261 Figure 3), such as:

  • the required distances from windows for appliances
  • separation required between flue terminals (Table 16) and other building elements such as eaves, windows, air inlets, electrical switchboards or meters
  • the splashback requirements for gas hobs
  • location requirements for gas containers (NZS 5261 Appendix G).
