RD-02 V1.1 Cylinder Safety (Transport) Caps


The safe handling and transport of gaseous cylinders is extremely important to avoid injury caused by the accidental discharge of gaseous cylinders during transport, whether by vehicle or manual handling. Cylinder safety (transport) caps are one of several safety mechanisms used to avoid such accidental discharges.


This document provides a list of cylinder safety caps and supplier details for the gaseous fire suppression cylinders most commonly used in Australia.


The list is intended to be a useful reference for technicians so that when they find cylinders with no safety cap they can easily identify the type of safety cap required and where it can be sourced from.
