Static caravan gas tank covers improve safety.
Buying a static caravan on a UK holiday park is now more popular than ever with people in the UK taking more ’eco friendly’ UK short breaks. When using such holiday homes safety is of paramount importance when traveling with your friends and family, especially the LPG gas supply used as fuel for heating, hot water and cooking. Some holiday parks are now converting to ‘central storage’ of LPG gas supply that is linked to all static caravans on the site to improve safety, however most static caravans in the UK still have independent LPG cylinders stored adjacent to the caravan. Many owners consider large red LPG cylinders to me unsightly, often spoiling the view from idyllic holiday locations. Most LPG cylinders have had a very hard life with dents and flaking paint and make even the most recent models of static caravans look unappealing. These cylinders currently have no protection from the elements or from tampering and vandalism.
Some owners we have spoken to have tried to ‘’box in’’ these cylinders, however there are many rules and regulations regarding issues such as ventilation and advice should be gained from a Corgi registered engineer before completion. As a result of these issues an innovative UK company has produced the first Gas Cylinder Cover designed for Static Holiday Caravans. This product is designed to keep 2 LPG Cylinders safe and secure whilst using a range of colour options to help owners match with their static caravan. Should this product be a success there will be an instant improvement in the look and feel of many static caravans based on UK holiday parks, especially if supported by the park operators. We could also see an extension in the life of LPG Cylinders, reducing costs and helping the environment.
