Do propane cages need to be locked?
In this way, can propane tanks be stored inside?
Store a propane tank, no matter how large or small, outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Never store a tank in a basement, in your home or in an attached garage. Keeping a tank indoors can raise the temperature inside the tank, which can be a fire hazard.
Additionally, which organization develops standards for propane storage? The Interstate Commerce Commission has also adopted standards for containers of LPG.
In this manner, how should a propane tank be stored?
- Keep propane cylinders outside. Never keep them indoors or in an enclosed area, such as a garage, shed or basement.
- Keep them in a cool place. Do not expose cylinders to heat above 120 degrees.
- Keep propane cylinders away from flames. That includes smoking or using spark-producing tools.
Is it safe to leave propane tank outside in summer?
Avoid keeping your tank in temperatures above 120 °F (49 °C). As the temperature rises, the pressure inside your raises. Don't leave your tank in the sunlight during the hottest months. Propane tanks have a release valve that will help relieve pressure if temperatures are consistently high.
