Gas Locker Safety Legislation on LPG Gas Systems

Safety of gas in leisure vehicles is of upmost importance, the potential fire hazard is well known however leaking gas and carbon monoxide poisoning are by far the most lethal.

Safety: Gas is heavier than air so a metal gas locker encasing your gas bottle with correct ventilation will ensure that should gas leak from the bottle it will safely vent out of the floor of the vehicle into atmosphere.

Security: How secure would you feel if you had a gas bottle not contained in a sealed locker and in your living/sleeping area.

 

Liability: Have you checked with your insurers as to who is liable in the event of a gas leak if the bottle is not contained securely.

The most common cause of a gas leak is the bottle and connection.
A metal locker made to meet UK regulation BS EN 1949:2002 ensuring leaking gas is contained and vented safely out of the vehicle is an essential feature of a van conversion. Gaslow can supply gas lockers to comply with the legislation. Gaslow offer four sizes of locker, the first is designed for a single small Gaslow 2.7kg refillable LPG cylinder & Campingaz 907 bottle, the second for two Gaslow 2.7kg refillable cylinders or two Campingaz 907 Cylinders or a mix of either.
