An emergency earthquake shut off valve is intended to close the gas line to your home, on the outside of your house, in the event of an earthquake. This will greatly reduce potential risk of explosion or fire due to the loss of gas line integrity or gas leak inside your home after a major earthquake.
At Earthquake Tech we exclusively install “The California Gas Valve.” Having been manufactured in California since 1978, this valve comes with a 30 year warranty as well as EarthquakeTech’s. These top-of-the-line valves are the original, tried and true valves made by Pacific Seismic Products and are built in the USA. We install the California gas valve in any size requested for both vertical and horizontal installations as well as residential and commercial use .
Having been through NW Natural’s training program, we warranty our installation. With the installation of this emergency gas valve, we use a ridge bracing strut that keeps the gas line stiff to avoid false trips as well as ensuring that it is triggered when the house moves. With your order from Earthquake Tech, you will have the peace of mind knowing that the valve is installed correctly.
All our crew is certified by Hilti to professionally and accurately install Hilti anchors. These anchors, which include several varieties, are the highest quality products we’ve found to support heavy, dynamic loads, such as seismic and shock loads.
