WHY DO WE PROMOTE A CAGE?
With a lot of gas installations done,we had a lot of requests where a client would ask "DO I REALLY HAVE TO GET A CAGE?
Well by law you are not forced to have a cage according to the SANS 10087-1:2013 edition 6.It states that:
5.10.3-Domestic Installations do not require that the cylinders be placed in a cage but shall be secured in such a manner so as not to accidentally fall over.HOWEVER WHERE PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE CYLINDERS IS POSSIBLE,THE CYLINDERS AND MANIFOLD,IF FITTED,SHOULD BE IN A LOCKED CAGE OR FENCED AREA THAT MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS.
We have done a lot of different installations without a cage and all of them are legal and they do qualify for a COC, but we prefer to have a cage installed,because for us, whether the public has access or not, safety is the highest priority.
Here are a couple of points why we promote safety:
-We consider the safety of your children more because children are children.They're always curious.
-Some areas have a challenge with crime,so cylinders just standing alone without being caged,can attract not so good people
-Visitors can have access to the cylinders and they can fiddle with the cylinders
In conclusion,you are not forced to have a cage BUT please put into consideration the above factors before choosing not to have a cage for your cylinders or alternatively you can arrange that we come in at a later stage to put a cage up.
