Calling Electricians/Gasfitters,




Are there any restrictions on how minimum distance an internal electrical socket can be from a gas line running internally up a building wall?




See attached photo - flush box is where I'm hoping to install the electrical socket (10Amp PDL Double Socket, if that matters) , and the yellow pipe is the gas line running from my 45kg LPG bottles (which are around 25m away from photo location, if that matters).

A quick Google search brought me to here, where someone claims for "distances from gas pipes to electric cables the clearance is 25 mm (minimum)", but are there any experts here who can verify this for me?




Thanks in advance

It wasn't a claim, it was a reference to the clause in the electrical standard AS/NZS 3000 Proximity to non electrical sevices (b) refers to gas and water standards and has a requirement that above ground electrical services must have a minimum clearance of 25mm from gas or water pipes.
