Your Guide to Medical Gas Installations

By: Christian, Founder at MTS

    • Everything you Need:

      We work hand in hand with architects and directors to provide you with everything you’ll need to streamline the installation process. This includes everything from drafting blueprints, scheduling and supervising our ASSE certified medical gas technicians, shopping for and ordering the equipment you need at wholesale rates, and certifying the completed installation per NFPA guidelines.

    • The Correct Personnel:

      New installations are performed by ASSE certified 6010 plumbers and ASME IX Brazers and can handle everything you need from plumbing entire hospitals, to installing new zones, outlets and alarms in smaller surgery centers and dental offices. Your new installation and equipment will then be inspected and verified by our ASSE 6030 verifiers to make sure everything is functioning properly, code compliant and that you have nothing to worry about.
