A Mobile App for Faster and Safer Gas-Line Installations

To support customers of its GAS-FLO CSST product line, Fairview wanted a dedicated mobile app that would take the guesswork out of installations. By handling the calculations for customers, an app would help them find the right product and install it safely.

Calculator for Product Recommendations

The app's core function is to calculate the most appropriate tube size for the job. By plugging in a few details—such as gas type, required BTU and run length—installers receive an instant recommendation. The entire app interface is designed for easy reading under a wide variety of lighting conditions.

Reference Tables

Even with the calculator, installers might want to reference the full tables. We redesigned the tables to display clearly on mobile devices and reduce confusion. Our highest priority was making the app usable while on the job site, so we analyzed multiple source tables before arriving at a new, simplified layout.

Installation Support

We added a support section for easy access to helpful materials such as product installation and assembly guides, as well as FAQs. Since working with gas lines can be dangerous, we wanted to ensure installers had all the information they need at their fingertips. All content is also available in English and French.
The app was designed for easy use on the job, under any lighting conditions.

The outcome

By automating a major step in the installation process, the app dramatically reduces the chances for human error.

As a result, work can be performed with greater efficiency and safety. The app is now available for free download in the App Store and on Google Play.
