Confined Space Kits
These 4 Gas Confined Space Kits are designed to include everything you would need for confined space monitoring. Each comes with a GasAlertMicro monitor with a variety of options available depending upon your specific gas monitoring requirements. Each of the cases is built rugged and designed to withstand the roughest of handling and conditions. A car charger is included in the deluxe package as well as a face filter and manual pump.
Confined space gas checks are commonly conducted either via lowering a gas monitor into the desired space via the use of a drop line, or as an alternative a 4 gas monitor with a built-in pump can be connected to a hose and fed into the desired space.
All major 4 gas monitors are pre-configured to detect what are the two most frequent toxic gases being Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) and Carbon Monoxide (CO), they also detect flammable gas Methane (CH4) and are used to measure Oxygen levels (O2). If you need to detect or monitor a gas outside of the four mentioned above please speak to our staff who can recommend the best solution for you.
The Confined Space Kits are available in the Standard Package, with Leather carry case and accessories, or the Deluxe Package with heavy duty carrying case and accessories. Please contact one of ADT’s friendly staff for more details.

What is a Confined Space?
By definition a confined space isn’t just a small space, but somewhere where there are hazards associated with a specific situation. According to Safe Work Australia, a confined space is an enclosed space that:
- is not designed or intended to be occupied by a person
- is at normal atmospheric pressure—or is designed or intended to be at normal atmospheric pressure—while a person is in the space
- is a risk to health and safety from:
- an atmosphere that doesn’t have a safe oxygen level
- contaminants like airborne gases, vapours and dusts that may cause injury from fire or explosion
- has harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants
- is at risk of engulfment.
Confined spaces are commonly found in vats, tanks, pits, pipes, ducts, flues, chimneys, silos, containers, pressure vessels, underground sewers, wet or dry wells, shafts, trenches, tunnels or other similar enclosed or partially enclosed structures, when these examples meet the definition of a confined space in the model WHS Regulations.
