Fencing around LPG bulk storage tanks


Recommended Posts

Can anybody advise on the separation distances between LPG tanks and flammables please?

At work we have a LPG bulk Storage compound with chain link boundary fence. The site manager wants to mask this off with a hit and miss wood fence (see example below) next to the chain-link boundary fence which is 1.5m from tanks - they are six in two rows of three. I'm thinking the potential fire loading of that type of fence could give risk to the tanks and the gap should be bigger than 1.5M. I'm aware there is a code of practice doc but am reluctant to purchase at £90 if I can avoid it for what I'm hoping is a simple one. Thank you in advance!
