Macurco Gas Detection

Vehicle Exhaust Systems

At Macurco Gas Detection, we specialize in gas detection for vehicle exhaust systems such as parking garages, loading docks, etc. With over 50 years of experience in this industry, let our team help lay out a system for your application and answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to make life easier for you by providing you with resources, saving time for project layouts, and submitting details that you can implement into your mechanical drawings.

Why Install A Gas Detection System?


The solution to pollution is dilution. The solution to vehicle exhaust in parking garages is dilution with “fresh” air drawn in by fans, louvers and doors until reaching an acceptable gas concentration. Macurco gas detectors provide automatic exhaust fan control to help maintain acceptable levels of Carbon Monoxide (CO), Combustible Gases (EX) or Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) in parking garages. Consult local codes for the specific requirements.


When people think about sustainability and saving energy, the temptation is to think first of inhabited spaces like offices and residences, but one of the most important areas is in reducing energy consumption in enclosed parking garages. Installing ventilation controllers based on gas concentrations can substantially reduce consumption of both electricity and natural gas and pay for itself in less than one year.


In residential facilities like condominiums with enclosed parking, the noise from exhaust fans can negatively impact tenant satisfaction. Noise pollution adversely affects the lives of millions of people. Studies have shown that there are direct links between noise and health. Problems related to noise include stress-related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption, and lost productivity.

Gases Found

Most states and local municipalities have building codes that recognize and recommend carbon monoxide detection and ventilation in enclosed parking garages. If local building code does not have any requirements for Carbon Monoxide or Combustible Gases and Nitrogen Dioxide detection in parking garages, it is still a good idea to educate the facility manager or design engineer that mitigation of these gases is a very important component of environmental health and safety in a parking garage. Consult local codes for the specific requirements.

Suggested Gas Detectors, Control Panels & Accessories

The Macurco 6 & 12 Series fixed gas detectors provide life-saving solutions aimed to protect people and property. These fixed gas detectors are designed for low-level detection, mitigation, and notification. Let these detectors do the work for you by shutting off valves, turning on fans, engaging horns and strobes, and provide notification to fire panels and building automation systems when gases reach key limits. These controllers in conjunction with Macurco gas detectors provide automatic control to help maintain an acceptable environment in parking garages or other applications. These systems are easily configured making installation hassle-free.
