Calor Gas Storage and Handling Safety

Calor gas bottles, depending on their size and weight, can be heavy because they’re filled with pressurised gas. Therefore, the gas bottles need to be stored, handled, used and maintained properly. Here are some basic storage tips you should try to follow:



For residential properties, you can use up to 15kg of Butane (2 blue 7.5kg gas bottles) indoors, for example in portable gas heaters. You can also store a further maximum of 15kg indoors.

Our red Propane gas bottles can be used indoors in commercial and industrial premises on a temporary basis, for example when you’re using a blowtorch or air heater but the gas bottles must be stored outdoors.

In the case of fixed installations, Propane gas bottles must be sited outside.
