Storing gas bottles: The basics

Storing gas bottles can seem daunting but it needn’t be with Safety Storage Centre’s fantastic new range of gas bottle storage cages. Read on for a full introduction of our range!

Gas bottles can be dangerous and tend to be rather heavy but if you follow a few basics then you can’t go too far wrong:

  • Store the gas bottles outside… Whilst there can be some exceptions to this, storing gas bottles outside is the safe course of action in the majority of circumstances;
  • Keep the gas bottles securely locked away… This is crucial to prevent thieves and vandals tampering with the dangerous bottles;
  • But don’t lock away in an enclosed cabinet… Ventilation is key with gas bottles. The storage facility should be secure, locked but allow good ventilation;
  • Whatever you do, don’t store near something that could cause ignition… Think about nearby heat sources, volatile chemicals or flammable materials and keep your gas bottles well away from those; and
  • Take advice if you have different types of gas bottles… For instance LPG should not be stored near to other gas cylinders.

Gas bottle storage cages: The solution

To deal with the first three bullet points listed above, our gas bottle storage cages are the perfect design solution! They allow for outdoors storage, with a secure locking facility as well as providing ample ventilation for the gas bottles stored within. Storing gas bottles couldn’t possibly be made easier…

The cages are a top quality product and they are manufactured right here in the UK. They are made of powder coated steel and come with a hasp and staple design allowing you to fit your own padlock to provide the security that is needed. Or, if you need a padlock too, then visit our sister website Ultra Security Centre for a huge range to choose from.

The gas bottle storage cages come in a huge range of sizes depending on the nature and quantity of the bottles that you wish to store and there are various colour options too. If you want a bespoke design and size or if you want to upgrade to a galvanised finish then we can accommodate this too, you would just need to call us with your requirements.
