The Right Choice of Storage Location

In order to comply with regulations when storing gas cylinders outdoors, the choice of a suitable location is crucial. In this context, certain safety distances must be observed. Compressed gas cylinders containing flammable or oxidising gases must be stored at least 2 metres apart.

The protected area of the gas cylinder storage must be far from public traffic areas. Likewise, a distance of at least 5 metres must be maintained from adjacent facilities from which a possible fire hazard could emanate. This minimum distance can be replaced by a 2 metres high protective wall, which must be of sufficient width and made of a non-combustible building material.
