How far apart should Macurco Detectors be installed?

Last Updated: 12/06/2013

That depends on the type of detector you're using and the environment in which it will be installed.

The spacing figures listed below assume the detectors are being installed in locations with good airflow. For narrow hallways or environments where airflow is poor, detectors will have to be installed closer together.

For residences, offices, hotels...
Carbon Monoxide detectors and Heating Gas Detectors should be installed 900 feet apart.

For commercial garages, warehouses...
Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide Detectors, like the TX-6-ND, should be installed 5,000 feet apart.
Combustible Gas Detectors should be installed 900 feet apart.
