West Midlands Ambulance approached us for a secure solution for gas cylinder storage at a central hub in the North Midlands.

They required racks for both small bottles and floor standing cylinders, all enclosed in a lockable steel mesh enclosure and protected externally by heavy duty barriers.

The racks were custom designed by Advantage to suit the two sizes of gas cylinder.

It is essential that a stock of full cylinders is always available at the ambulance hubs for re-stocking the vehicles as required. It is also extremely important that they are kept in a locked cage with access to only authorised personnel.

The modular railing barrier around the outside of the store was a vital element as the store is situated close to the entrance of the ambulance fleet workshop. This additional protection was required against potential damage from incoming vehicles.

The barrier installation uses an innovative ‘flex’ pad system. All support posts are mounted on shock absorbing polyurethane pads which enable the railing barriers to ‘give’ up to 10 degrees from the vertical upon impact. This still offers full protection to the store but with the additional benefit of reducing the incidence of damage to vehicles that may contact the barriers.

The installation was completed in one day with no disruption to the important work of the Ambulance Service.
