Safety

Once a suitable tank location is found the site must be appropriately prepared for the tank installation. The installation of the tank can be undertaken in one day. 

Intergaz technicians will carry out the last safety checks and will explain everything that you should know about the tank. 

As a new customer, you will receive important information regarding customer service, ordering of LPG, cost/payment, and safety measures. 

All LPG tanks must be placed at an external ground-level location with all necessary equipment that satisfies the following requirements:

  •    Keeps safety distances as defined by governmental regulations.

  •    Should not be close to exiting doors.

  •    Should have a solid and flat concrete ground base and located away from dangerous areas.    

  •    There should be no dirt, dry grass, plants, volatile and explosive materials etc, within a three-metre radius of    the LPG tank.   

  •    The LPG tank should not be close to any underground locations, openings, underground ventilation units, sewers, and building openings.   

  •    The area between the building and the storage location of the tank needs to be made from non-combustible materials.

  •    The storage location of the tank should be  protected by a metallic cover. In addition, it is preferable that the tank’s sides are also protected using a non-flammable fence (height of two metres). Such a fence should be able to stop unauthorised people from accessing the tank. The fence should, however, permit the ventilation of the ground and the tank’s sides (as mentioned above). Ground ventilation is required in order to enhance the evaporation of LPG in the unusual situation of a leak.    

  •    There should be an independent earthing system.

  •    Finally, the opinion of the Fire Department is    of great importance and should be taken into account during the    process of selecting a suitable storage site for LPG.

NoteCustomer is expected to undertake the above-mentioned preparation themselves, but we are always available for guidance and to offer advice and support.

After Tank Installation:

  • Keep rubbish, ragweed, grass, and any combustible materials away from the tank. Maintain a suitable  metal fence and keep a three-metre radius from the LPG tank clean at all times.
  • Keep vehicles, electrical equipment, smoking and any other sources of ignition well away from the installation.
  • Do not make any alterations within the specified (by law) perimeter of the tank which may affect the installation. Contact Intergaz for advice.        
  • Only allow Intergaz or those authorised by Intergaz have access to the installation.
