BBQ Gas Bottle Storage is vital this summer

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Pin on PinterestBuffer this page

In recent years, gas has taken over charcoal as the most popular method of barbecuing. This poses a couple of questions: Which barbecue gas do I use? And how do I store it safely? Fortunately, Safety Storage Centre are here to make things nice and simple for you, as we explain why BBQ gas bottle storage is vital this summer.

With temperatures climbing over 30C this summer so far, there’s no wonder families will be having 9 barbecues this year (on average). But with the rise of gas-based barbecues comes a set of relatively unaddressed safety hazards.

Firstly, let’s address the two types of barbecue gas that can be used. There’s butane, which was the more common of the two until recent years, and then there’s propane. Butane is stored in blue gas bottles, while propane is kept in red gas bottles – most barbecues are fitted with a red propane regulator as standard these days.

Regardless of which gas you need for your barbecue, storing gas bottles can result in injury or property damage when not done correctly and safely. It goes without saying that these high-pressured gas cylinders are a ticking time-bomb when mistreated and they could cause serious damage, so it’s imperative that storage is taken seriously.

BBQ Gas Bottle Storage is vital this summer

You should make sure gas bottles are always:

– Stood upright in storage
– Kept well-ventilated when stored
– Kept away from heat and ignition sources
– Stored outdoors and away from entry/exit points of buildings and drains
– Kept secure with controlled access

You should make sure gas bottles are never:

– Stored below ground level
– Stored in places where gas is prohibited
– Stored near corrosive or toxic materials
