What are Gas Cylinder Racks?

Gas Cylinder Racks are designed to store and restrain one or more gas cylinders in an upright position, so that they can't topple over or be damaged. You’ll find Gas Cylinder Racks in warehouses, laboratories, welding facilities and factories – anywhere, in fact, that uses pressurised gas cylinders.

How do Gas Cylinder Racks work?

Many Gas Cylinder Racks are bolted to the floor and / or the wall, for secure and stable storage. Others are freestanding, with additional bracing and supports, and are ideal for situations where there is no option to fix the rack to the wall or floor or the workplace has frequent layout changes. Whether they are fixed or freestanding, restraining chains or braces keep the gas cylinders securely in position. 

What are the benefits of Gas Cylinder Racks?

Gas cylinders are highly pressurised and flammable, with potential for serious workplace accidents – it’s no surprise that handling and storing them is so heavily regulated. Gas Cylinder Racks are specifically designed to store gas cylinders safely, as:

  • They restrain cylinders securely to prevent them from falling over or falling onto another gas cylinder
  • They allow the gas cylinder to be stored upright, with the valve uppermost, in line with HSE guidance – this also stops them from becoming a trip hazard
  • Gas Cylinder Racks can store one or several gas cylinders, allowing companies to store only what they need
  • Racks that house more than one gas cylinder mean that gas cylinders are physically separated from each other, which minimises the risk of damage

Gas Cylinder Racks also allow gas cylinders to be easily and safely moved on and off Gas Cylinder Carts without the need to drag or roll them.

For safety reasons, we recommend that gas cylinders with different gas types are segregated and stored in separate Gas Cylinder Racks. Full and empty gas cylinders should also be restrained in separate Gas Cylinder Racks.

Which Gas Cylinder Racks are in the First Mats range?

We have a wide range of Gas Cylinder Racks, all manufactured in the UK and providing safe and secure storage for gas cylinders. We have three different types:

  • wall-mounted racks, cost effective and easy to install
  • racks with a base plate, for fixing to the floor and wall
  • stands that are freestanding, no installation required

The Gas Cylinder Racks are available in different widths, so that gas cylinders of different sizes (100mm to 270mm diameter) can be stored securely with no risk of sideways movement.

We also have Gas Cylinder Racks that can house one cylinder on its own or several, up to six. Our Single Sided Gas Cylinder Floor Stand can even be joined back to back to form a Double Sided rack with twice the capacity.

Other safety features include:

  • restraining chains or braces
  • pre-drilled holes for fixing to walls and / or floors; in the case of our freestanding options such as the Round Gas Cylinder Stands, extra bracing and supports
  • manufactured from 3mm sheet steel, such as the Economy Gas Cylinder Floor Stands or fully welded, such as the Single and Double Sided Gas Cylinder Floor Stands, for strength and structural integrity
  • Durable epoxy finish, in blue or light grey

Some have extra safety features, such as the Hinged Latch Gas Cylinder Stand. The hinged latch means that getting the gas cylinder in and out of the rack is easy, and once in place, the gas cylinder is secured with wing nuts. And its vertical bracing and heavy base plate stops gas cylinders toppling over.
