Safe Gas Cylinder Storage Ltd was formed in 2007 with the aim of reducing the problems associated with the storage of medical gas cylinders. During a brief stay in a local hospital it was evident from conversations with the nurses and other staff that the medical oxygen cylinders on the ward were a potential hazard as they did not feel that they had the necessary equipment to store them safely. The larger cylinders are very heavy and could cause severe injury if they were to fall on a member of staff or a patient. We have designed a range of high quality cylinder containers, cylinder restraints and medical cylinder holders that we believe help reduce the risks involved. They are designed to accommodate the most widely used medical cylinder sizes, those used on the wards, treatment rooms and in theatre areas. We now supply some of the largest NHS Trusts with their cylinder storage requirements and we also supply many vets, dentists, ambulance stations and British Red Cross branches.
IF THE GAS CYLINDER STORAGE OR RESTRAINT THAT YOU REQUIRED IS NOT AVAILABLE, WE CAN DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE TO ORDER.
All of our containers are now painted with an antimicrobial powder coating Sterilcoat AM In tests the powder coating showed a complete broad range activity against bacteria, yeasts and moulds including antibiotic resistant bacteria superbugs such as MRSA. The powder coating shows a high reducing activity against a variety of micro-organisms and has a long lasting action thanks to a controlled release of the active component. Please click here if you would like more information on Sterilcoat AM powder coating and the test results.
Safe Gas Cylinder Storage Ltd
We supply vets, dentists, ambulance stations and some of the largest NHS Trusts with hospital cylinder storage. We have also worked with medical supply companies to design various cylinder storage systems to be used in their fleet of oxygen cylinder delivery vans. Our cylinder restraints, stalls and cylinder cages can be used for storing the larger F or HX size medical cylinders that are too heavy to be lifted into the containers. The cylinder stalls can hold up to 15 F/HX size cylinders or there is a cylinder cage which holds up to 20 cylinders. If you are unsure which size the cylinders you have are, or which would be the appropriate cylinder storage solution please contact us and we can help. A small selection of our cylinder containers and cylinder restraints can be seen on our products pages. If the container or restraint that you require is not shown, we can design and manufacture to order. Discounts are offered on larger orders and prices include free delivery.
For the larger cylinder we also have cylinder stalls for up to 15 cylinders and lockable cylinder cages for up to 20 cylinders. They have fixing holes and can be used outside or alternatively be placed inside a hospital medical gas store. A small selection of our holders, restraints and stalls can be seen on our products pages, where you can also purchase them online. However if the container or cylinder restraint you require is not shown, we can design and manufacture to order, as shown on our bespoke products page. To take advantage of our professional workmanship and competitive prices, please Contact us today for a free, no obligation quotation, either through our contact form or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We supply storage solutions for all sizes of medical cylinders though our standard cylinder containers are used to store the smaller cylinders with a diameter of up to 104mm (D, CD and E size). Our range includes containers to hold 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 small cylinders. Our containers can reduce the problems associated with medical gas storage as they provide a fixed, focal point for staff when cylinders are required for use, as well as a neat solution to the hazards that free-standing cylinders can create for both users and passers-by. For the larger, heavier cylinders we supply a range of cylinder restraints for the most common sizes F/HX (140mm), G (180mm) and J/L (230mm). They have fixing holes to attach to a wall and are made from 3mm steel with a protective trim and chains fitted to prevent cylinders from falling.
The containers are made of 1.5mm steel and powder coated for a superior, corrosion-resistant finish. They are fitted with protective trim to reduce noise and “wear and tear” and all have a 3mm thick rubber mat in the base which can be removed for ease of cleaning. Furthermore, all containers have fixing points enabling them to be attached to a wall if required. Many of our storage holders can also be fitted with braked castors, making them much easier to relocate and to move during ward cleaning. We also supply wall-mounted cylinder holders for the CD size cylinders for wards where keeping the cylinders on the floor is not practical.
We are happy to work from your own design or equally, to work with you to design something appropriate to your requirements.
Our storage products can reduce the problems associated with medical cylinder storage as they provide a fixed, focal point for staff when cylinders are required for use, as well as a neat solution to the hazards that free-standing cylinders can create for both users and passers-by. Gas cylinders are relatively unstable and heavy, so a falling cylinder could cause serious injury.
The cylinder containers are designed to accommodate the most widely used medical cylinder sizes, those used on the wards, treatment rooms and in the theatre area (CD, D and E). The containers are made of 1.5mm steel and powder coated in grey for a superior, corrosion-resistant finish. Other colours are available upon request if required, for instance it is possible to order a mixture of red containers and green containers to indicate empty and full cylinders. All have a 3mm thick rubber mat in the base to reduce noise and “wear and tear”, these can be removed for ease of cleaning.
They also have hard plastic trim to reduce damaging contact between the cylinders and the container. Our cylinder containers are robust, durable and virtually maintenance–free. Furthermore all cylinder containers have fixing points enabling them to be attached to a wall (recommended). All of the containers also have small rubber feet to stop the metal of the container from contacting directly with the ward floor. If you require moveable storage containers we also make wheeled cylinder containers, the 4, 6, 8 and 9 cylinder containers can all be fitted with braked castors.
