There are very good reasons why many professional chefs love cooking with gas. Gas ranges respond immediately when lit, providing precise temperature control and highly-sensitive and instantaneous cooking results. It’s easy to see that cooking with gas offers superior results in every sense.
Immediate heat, superior temperature control, even heat distribution, improved usability with a multitude of cookware, and to top it all off, a more affordable heating source: how can you go wrong? Upgrading your kitchen to a gas cooktop can also be managed without major remodelling, as gas cooktops are fairly easy to install and can either be free-standing or built in.
LPG for your home
We deliver a Home Pack of two 45kg LPG bottles to your place.
Most gas appliances can be connected to our bottles which are mounted to the outside of your house.
Each gas installation needs a gas fitting certificate issued by a craftsman gasfitter before the gas can be turned on and is available for use. We can help you choose a good site for your setup, as well as recommend a certified gasfitter.
If you are ready to go, call us on 06 873 4091 and tell us:
• Where you live
• Where you would like the bottles fitted
• The name of your gasfitter
We might need to pay you a visit to check if your house is suitable for supply.

Pair up handy gas packs
Our gas cylinders are a great way to go. Our standard LPG pack has two 45kg cylinders – delivered to your door. We can do multi-cylinder installations for larger businesses. When one gas cylinder empties, your regulator should automatically switch to the next cylinder. Give us a call when that happens, and we’ll replace the empty cylinder.
Some of our larger customers go for a standing order so cylinders are replaced on a regular basis.
New gas installations need a gas fitting certificate issued by a craftsman gasfitter before the gas can be turned on and available for use.
Soak it up
Gas can give you continuous hot water – perfect for hospitality, hotel and health industries. Water is heated as it’s used, so you’ll never run cold, and it’s cost efficient because you’re only paying to heat the water you use.
Get cosy quickly
Gas heating comes on quickly. It’s perfect for providing easily controlled heat, for instance to optimise crop yield or with livestock management. At the fancier end of the scale, there are attractive gas heating options for hotel lobbies or special guest rooms, with flame-effect gas fires. Large scale heating or luxury cosiness – gas covers the field.
Gas is king in the kitchen. Chefs love cooking with it because of the instant heat and quick temperature control. And in a busy kitchen the visibility of a gas flame has added advantages – along with the swift cool down. Whatever you’re whipping up, gas is top of the menu.
The great all rounder
Gas ticks boxes all over the place for a bundle of industries. Gas fired laundry equipment is quick and cost effective. Automotive paint ovens love the accuracy and speed of gas. Gas makes smart sense for most businesses – from bistros to large manufacturing sites.
Get together with a gasfitter
It’s a legal requirement that your gas is installed by a certified gasfitter. To check they’re the real deal, ask to see their card issued by the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board. Or check out www.pgdb.co.nz and click on ‘search the public register’.
Fire up your forklifts with LPG
LPG will give your forklift fleet all the grunt you need – without the high cost of petrol. What’s more, LPG burns cleaner so it’s better for the environment than petrol.
We deliver straight to your work so there’s no time wasting or hassle – and you can set up a standing order, so you never run short. We’ll even rent you extra cylinders when you need them.
