Experience Camping Safely with Composite LPG Cylinder
As the school holidays approach, many parents are gearing up to take their children on outdoor adventures, such as camping by waterfalls, beaches or hiking trails. Such activities have gained popularity, particularly in the wake of the pandemic, where people are seeking the benefits of fresh air and outdoor activities. Some prefer to indulge in “glamping,” (glamorous camping) where the accommodation and facilities are more luxurious and exclusive. MalaysiaNow reports that demand for camping and glamping are increasing by 200% from the previous year.

There is also a new style of camping that’s gaining popularity in Malaysia – using camper vans. Recreational Vehicles (RVs) are gaining more attention, with more people prefer caravans, camper vans, and motorhomes for outdoor recreation. The trend is also spreading across the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
Camping with LPG Safely
Camping is a fun activity for families, where they can build campfires, barbecue, and kids can socialize and play with other children who are also camping. For those using campervans, there is always an adventure waiting from morning till night. However, safety is always a top priority.
When camping, it is essential to ensure the safety of the gas equipment and take necessary precautions. Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning is a potential danger among campers and caravanners. CO is a poisonous gas that can be formed when any carbon-based fuel is burned. It can build up in an unventilated space, and it is crucial to be mindful of its dangers.
Portable gas appliances, such as gas lamps and gas stoves used in camping and caravanning, also require attention. Many people are unaware of the dangers of CO while on holiday. It is important to know that using a portable gas camping stove can be a potential hazard, and that CO can build up in a poorly ventilated area such as a caravan.

LPG stoves, lights, or heaters must use in outdoors, as gas can quickly build up in small, enclosed spaces such as tents or caravans, leading to CO poisoning and even fire. It is important to ensure that the ventilation is adequate and never to use these appliances indoors.
Additionally, it is inadvisable to use these appliances near flammable materials, clothing, or long grass.
To ensure safety, it’s crucial to keep the LPG cylinder outside the tent or caravan and far away from any ignition source. It’s also essential to check if the appliances are in good working order and undamaged. If in doubt, it is best to avoid using the gas cylinder.
