Stacking up on healthcare management

BOC Healthcare has launched a new range of stackable, gas cylinder storage racks to improve gas cylinder management.

The steel racks, with plastic moulded trays, are designed to help healthcare providers comply with the cylinder management aspects of HTM 02-01. This states that 'smaller cylinders should be stored horizontally on metal racks, suitably protected to prevent damage to cylinder paintwork'.

The racks can be stacked up to 10 high, with five smaller cylinders on each layer. This helps to make the best use of available space.


Because of the modular nature of the system shelf layers can easily be added or removed and, as each layer is only 160mm high, there are no doorway restrictions during installation.


These stackable cylinder racks from BOC, a member of The Linde Group, promote sound cylinder management. By making stock checking and rotation simpler, owners will find it easier, to maintain adequate stock levels. Safer cylinder handling is also facilitated by an organised cylinder store.


In addition to the new stackable racks, BOC Healthcare also supplies cylinder stalls for the vertical storage and segregation of medium- and large-sized cylinders, as well as cylinder holders for wall mounted local storage of small cylinders and trolleys for cylinder transport. BOC offers a store design and installation service, as well as providing appropriate safety signage.
