Medical Gas Cylinders
Medical gas cylinders may be used for convenience or just be kept as a back-up to a fixed pipeline supply. Historically, many medical gas stores have been located in isolated or disused buildings with only basic security measures in place. This has led to medical gas cylinders being targeted by thieves for both their scrap metal value and contents. Increasing the standard of gas storage facilities to avoid the possibility of theft and the cost of replacing cylinders is now a priority.
Design of a Bespoke Solution
BOC Healthcare will visit the site and meet with Estates personnel to gain a thorough understanding of the storage facilities, surveying any existing facilities. The design team will then develop a bespoke solution that is fully compliant with the recommendations set out in HTM 02-01 and BCGA Code of Practice 44. This may involve the upgrading of current facilities, or a proposal for the construction of new purpose-built external store.
BOC Healthcare will manage the entire project from start to finish. Project elements may include:
- Proposal of new storage equipment
- Design and development of an operating system for the stand-alone store
- Plinth design
- Selection of location (in line with HTM 02-01, BCGA CP 44 and other relevant guidance)
- Provision of new or updated signage
BOC Healthcare anticipates and addresses every challenge that could arise during installation. The medical gas storage installation turnkey solution offers expert engineering for safety, compliance and system performance throughout, delivered smoothly and efficiently by one trusted supplier.
