13.09.2017 - GOK presents a video of a leak test of a LPG bottle construction

How to ensure the ready to use condition of the LPG
bottle construction without big efforts and in short time?
No matter because of a simplified leak check!

We show in the first video tutorial from GOK how you should
put the testing into practice and what to take in consideration.
For the first time we show the bubbles described in many cases
shown in the liquid of the leak tester if the construction of the
application is leaky.

Generally the mentioned leak test does not make any difference
neither the to be tested application supplies a gas barbeque or
patio heater, nor if it is installed on a caravan, boat or mobile
home. The simplified leak check is the same for all applications.

Only one click to get the video. Who is permanent interested

04.08.2017 - GOK present their primer for gas barbecues

According to a survey conducted by the German online portal
Statista, almost one in nine interviewees preferably barbecue
with LPG. Even though charcoal and electric barbecues are
still the top dogs, sizzling with gas clearly gains ground. Similar
to the other energy forms, barbecue experts in Europe should
bear a few things in mind when it comes to gas barbecues and
especially their components.

It is impossible to operate a gas barbecue without pressure
regulator and hose assembly. Unfortunately, too little attention
is sometimes paid to these parts, the so-called peripheral
equipment. We believe that this is wrong, because the focus
should also be on these safety-relevant components as it is on
the gas barbecue itself when it is time for the regular check-up.

To support all chefs in their striving for a safe barbecue, we have
published a type of primer for gas barbecues in that you will find
many helpful tips, technical details, answers to frequently asked
questions and illustrated guides.

You can download here the interactive PDF with links to suitable
products, detailed information and expert tips.

03.08.2017 - Successful Introduction of Energy Management System according to ISO 50 001

The efficient use of all forms of energy is an important element
for the sustainable development of our company. We wish to
preserve natural resources and avoid additional polluting of the
atmosphere, e.g. with greenhouse gases. In our view, economy
and ecology are not mutually exclusive, but always complement
each other when costs can be cut permanently through the use
of modern and efficient systems. One example is our cogener-
ation unit which helped us not only to reduce considerably our
procurement of electricity, but also to use produced heat for
room and hall heating, for the paint shop as well as for the
absorption refrigeration system. We have introduced an
energy management system that has been certified
successfully. On this basis we will pursue and implement
the objectives that we set for the energy consumption in our
company.


31.07.2017 - Care-free package for shop operators

Are you a specialist dealer selling GOK products? In this case
you have probably heard of the Product Safety Act (ProdSG
in Germany). But do you also know all details of this law?

For example, do you know that major legal issues might arise
if the dealer repackages original products? Let’s assume that
the specialist dealer does not add the assembly and operating
manual to their own new packing. Or there is an error in the type
identification of the product on the label.

The consequence is always: No legal conformity.


Transfer of obligations to the dealer
Many also forget the passage which says that all obligations of
the manufacturer are transferred to the dealer once the goods
are presented in an own packing or own labelling.

If you wish to avoid possible issues, but at the same time do not
want to do without a visually appealing presentation in your
shop, we have the right solution at hand.

You will find valuable information in the GOK blog article
"How do I present GOK products at the Point of Sale (POS)
in conformity with the law?"
(only available in German
language, please ask us for more information if required).
