Gas & Hazardous Materials

To ensure compliance with safety regulations, exhibitors are required to submit full details regarding the use of LPG cylinders prior to their event. Each application is assessed with public safety as the prime concern. Any exhibitor requiring use of LPG is required to place an order with our plumber’s F Wood & Son before you get onsite.
