How do I transport gas bottles and cylinders safely?

It’s important that you follow the below guidelines when transporting your gas bottles or cylinders.

How to move gas bottles (4kg and 9kg*)

  • Transport gas bottles in your vehicle’s passenger compartment with windows open, or in the boot of your car
  • Do not transport gas bottles loose or lying down. The gas bottles must be secured in place either in the passenger compartment or boot of your car.
  • Do not leave LPG bottles in an enclosed vehicle unnecessarily.
  • Always keep gas bottles cool and away from any flames, sparks, and heat.
  • Ensure the valves on your gas bottles are turned off firmly when not in use.
  • Do not transport more than two gas bottles in a vehicle.

How to move gas cylinders (45kg)

  • Kleenheat will generally deliver cylinders in excess of 13kg to your premises.  If you need to transport a gas cylinder yourself, make sure it stands upright and is secured in an open vehicle (e.g. in the back of a ute or trailer). The gas cylinders need to be secured at the back of the cab or front of the trailer with a webbing strap and not with a rope or chain.
  • Make sure the gas cylinder valve is turned off and cannot be moved during transport. Do not transport more than two 45kg cylinders at a time.
*Our 4kg Kwik-Gas bottles are filled with 3.7kg of LPG, and our larger 9kg Kwik-Gas bottles are filled with 8.5kg of LPG.
