Hi folks, I am fitting a lpg gas hob in a static van. Do I need floor vents below the hob. Also any additional wall vents, 

My understanding is that you MUST have floor vents under any LPG appliance.

I am not sure if you should really fit this yourself, I think this should be fitted, or at least signed off, by a gas-safe registered engineer, who will also check that the ventilation is sufficient.

If your van is on a park then your park owner may have somebody who will fit for you - and if it is on a park, then your contract quite probably specifies that gas work is only to be carried out by competent people with the relevant qualifications.

A house is not a static caravan and is subject to different rules and guidance.

HSE gov.uk, pdf RR945 (tried to attach) -  key notes refers to the "..need for drop holes under the appliance"

LPG gas sinks, so this is why van manufacturers create those draughty floors by putting vents under the gas appliances.

 

I wait to be corrected by any with more experience of installing and commissioning gas appliances, until then my post remains unchanged.

Any gas appliance fitted in a caravan MUST have a gas drop hole fitted.

 

Any work on a Static caravan MUST be done by a LPG Gas Safe Fitter.

 

It is illegal for anyone else to do any work on the gas system.
