24 / 7 Gas Suppression Transport

Fire Systems Products provides 24/7 Gas Suppression cylinder transport to our industry partners. We can pick up and drop off your cylinders at the requested locations and times.

If your cylinders are arriving from Interstate or Overseas, you can get them delivered to our warehouse, and we can hold them until you require delivery to your project.

At Fire Systems Products, we provide full-service operations & operate in-house transportation and testing wherever possible. We offer our industry partners our services to disconnect, transport, reclaim the gas, hydrostatic pressure test, re-certify, refill/recharge and reinstall. Or we can provide exchange cylinders that are certified for minimal downtime.

Our Transportation Staff

Fire Systems Products is a licensed dangerous goods carrier. Our staff hold Extinguishing Agent Handling Licenses (EAHL), so we are available to transport all your Gaseous Fire Suppression system cylinders, including ODS & SGG, when required.

Customised Services

FSP can organise the transport of your gas suppression cylinders to and from the site and either assist your technicians with the removal and re-installation or provide technicians to disconnect and reconnect. We can transport your fire cylinders for a Refill, Exchange, a mandatory ten-year Hydrotesting, or any other reason. We can take care of the whole process and get you back up and running on schedule and budget. Contact Fire Systems Products for an Australia-wide Gas Suppression transport quote or to discuss any of our customised services.

Our Flexibility of service means that we can send our technicians to disconnect and transport your cylinders, and we will take care of the whole process and get you back up and running in no time or provide assistance with any of these steps.

Our fire protection company clients occasionally require us to remove their cylinders from a site, decant and dispose of them or relocate them to another facility.

Whatever your needs, Call FSP Sales, and we can work out the custom solution that best suits your requirements.

Cylinder Transport Fleet

Fire Systems Products operate a purpose-built fleet of trucks to pick up and deliver cylinders for exchange, refill or hydrostatic testing purposes. Our staff are specialists in the transportation of dangerous goods.

A loading dock is not required as all our trucks have a hydraulic tail lift, and all cylinders are carried in a stillage for safe transport of your goods.

Safe Handling and Cylinder Transport Preparation

The safe handling and transport of cylinders are important safety considerations with Gaseous Fire Suppression systems. Cylinder safety (transport) caps are one of several safety mechanisms used to avoid accidental discharges.

You can ensure that you or your employees are capable and confident in cylinders' safe handling and transport by undertaking relevant training. If these training and certification costs are too prohibitive, contact FSP for assistance transporting your fire extinguishing agents.

Our Cylinder Transport Stillages

All Gas Suppression cylinders must be appropriately contained for transportation. FSP can supply stillage’s to all our customers with every transport to assist you with a seamless changeover.

FSP can provide our customised stillages to interstate customers to safely transport cylinders. We offer these on a deposit based system or as a purchase, depending upon project requirements. Our Stillages are designed and manufactured in Australia to high standards using quality products and processes.

If you’re working with us on an exchange basis, we can provide the exchange cylinders in one of our stillages via one of our dangerous goods transportation companies.

We recommend the following precautions:

  1. All persons handling Gas Suppression cylinders should hold Extinguishing Agent Handling Licenses (EAHL). If you don’t want this expense, Contact FSP.
  2. When installing cylinders, do not remove the valve transport cap until the cylinder is securely mounted to the container bracketing system and ready to be connected to a completed pipework system.
  3. Cylinders should not be moved from storage areas, transported or handled if they do not have the appropriate safety cap fitted, so it is made safe. (See FPAA RD02 for example caps).
