If you’re currently preparing for your next caravan holiday, you will know that you won’t get very far if you haven’t thought about your bottled gas supply. Your caravan will use gas for cooking, heating and maybe even lighting so it’s important to make sure you have the correct gas and equipment on-board and ready for your caravan break.
As they can potentially pose a significant risk, it is equally important to consider how you will store your gas bottles safely and securely.
Your gas bottles should be stored in a locked storage unit because they pose a fire risk. Don’t forget to check you have the correct fire extinguisher for the protecting you and your caravan against any fire risks.
Remember: When not using your caravan, ensure that all gas bottles and your appliances are turned off.
Security measures for your gas bottles
Gas bottles can be unsightly and easy to steal or damage and that is why Asgard, the specialist in secure steel storage have designed the Asgas Gas bottle Storage range, which has been selected as a Calor Gas Choice product.
The Asgas 38 gas bottle storage unit has been developed for the storage of up to two 19kg propane gas bottles. All our gas units are built from thick, heavy gauge galvanized (weather proof) steel panels with a large (lockable) single door access, the Asgas 38 Gas Bottle Storage provides superb secure store for propane gas bottles.
The winter months are usually a time when your caravan may be closed up and if you have not ensured your van is ready for the frost and months of idleness then you could be facing big problems and even expensive repair bills.
If you are not going to be using your van during the winter, it is recommended that you remove all gas cylinders and store in an adequately ventilated location. Ensure that all cylinders are fully turned off and the gas compartment is locked. Keep in mind that when storing Butane gas, it begins to freeze at temperatures below 4°C whereas Propane does not.
