Gas Cylinder Stands 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 Stands in warehouses, laboratories, welding facilities, and factories – anywhere, in fact, that uses pressurised gas cylinders.
Many Gas Cylinder Stand models 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 the gas cylinder stand is fixed or freestanding, restraining chains or braces keep the gas cylinders securely in position.
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. A gas cylinder stand is specifically designed to store gas cylinders safely, as:
A gas cylinder stand will 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, gas cylinders with different gas types should be segregated and stored in separate Gas Cylinder Stands. Full and empty gas cylinders should also be kept in separate Gas Cylinder Stands.
We have a wide range of Gas Cylinder Stand models, all manufactured in the UK and providing safe and secure storage for gas cylinders. We have three different types:
The Gas Cylinder Stands 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 Stands 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:
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.
