If you are looking for safe, practical and efficient medical cylinder storage look no further than our flexible solutions.
How to store medical gas cylinders
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and HTM02 provide a set of guidelines, which hospitals and other medical institutions must abide to in regards to medical gas cylinder storage. Failure to comply could result in you being fined, not to mention the possibility of hazards like explosions and fires. Below we have outlined some of the key points for storing medical gas cylinders:
- Medical gas cylinders should be kept in a purpose built cylinder rack
- A risk assessment should be carried out at the planning stage to ensure a safe and practical location is chosen
- Cylinders must be stored under cover and not in extreme temperatures
- They must be kept dry, clean and well ventilated
- Medical gas cylinder racks should be large enough to allow for you to keep full and empty cylinders separate
- Medical gas cylinder storage should be kept away from other storage areas containing highly flammable liquids and combustion materials
- Proper signage should be present in the storage area (prohibiting smoking and naked flames)
- Racks should be secure enough to prevent theft and misuse
Wall mounted medical gas cylinder racks
If you are looking for a way to store medical gas cylinders safely and efficiently, take a look at our wide range of wall mounted gas cylinder racks. All of our racks are made from quality materials and have been designed to the highest standards to ensure longevity is achieved. They each come with robust steel cylinder restraints to prevent cylinders from toppling over, as well as fixing holes and chains to fix the storage racks to the wall. All of our wall mounted medical gas cylinder racks are available in galvanized and painted finishes.
Many hospitals operate a clean floor policy. This means that anything that can be removed from the floor should be. If your hospital prefers to keep cylinders off the wall floor, then a wall mounted medical gas cylinder rack will provide an ideal solution. Storage Aspects' wall mounted cylinder racks are suitable for different sized cylinders and can be installed by our team to ensure a safe and accurate fit.

Bespoke medical gas cylinder storage racks
The Health and Safety at Work Act and HTM02 outline that all storage racks for medical gas cylinders should be purpose built. Here at Storage Aspects, we can help you comply with the regulations, by providing you with top quality, bespoke medical cylinder storage racks.
We understand that different hospitals require individually designed storage racks due to their different facilities and room sizes. Before we begin designing the cylinder storage racks, we will measure the available space to ensure a perfect fit. We will also ask you a number of questions to help us create your bespoke design, such as the number of cylinders you need to store. We will then make your bespoke medical cylinder storage rack from scratch, ensuring it meets your needs and requirements.
During the manufacturing process we will carry out testing on your cylinder storage rack to check that it is safe to use and meets your specification.
Come to us with your medical gas cylinder storage ideas and problems and we will do our very best to facilitate your requests.
