Why is high-pressure natural gas the right fuel for your classroom?

Natural gas is far safer than propane because it is lighter than air so leaks rise and dissipate; propane is heavier than air so leaks sink to the lowest place in the building and collect there. Any spark could cause a fire and explosion.

That is why many commercial buildings prohibit propane cylinders but G-TEC gas booster systems are welcomed everywhere, even in buildings where propane is not allowed.

Is your studio in a high school, community college or community arts center?  A G-TEC system is the safest way to supply gas to your torches - one Fire Marshal in Colorado learned about our products and said, “This is a fireman’s dream!”

G-TEC systems do not need special site preparation such as outside ventilation, they are quiet and can be installed right in the studio work area.

You’ll never run out of natural gas because a G-TEC Gas Booster is connected right to the utility natural gas pipe! Propane cylinders seem to run out of gas right in the middle of a project. You have to remember to check and change cylinders so it takes longer to get ready for class. With a G-TEC system you just turn on the gas booster and you are ready get started on your project.

There’s no carbon buildup on the tips of your torches because natural gas has very little carbon to begin with. You don’t have to clean carbon buildup off the tips of the torches and students don’t get flecks of carbon flying into the glass.

Natural gas is easier on the eyes because the flame is not as bright as a propane flame so there’s less eyestrain and it is easier to see your work!

For equal heat, natural gas is half the cost of propane! That’s right, you’ll cut your fuel gas bill in half when you switch from propane to high-pressure natural gas.
