Locking metal/petrol cabinet

Hi all

I'm looking for something similar to below to store petrol in. It doesn't need to be yellow or designed for storing petrol but i'd like it to lock and be metal.



These cabinets are £150+ so any help in finding one cheap would be appreciated.

Thanks

I bought/supplied a petrol one for club, after being advised...,

Would buying an non-designed one be not a waste of money and giving lip service to regulations...ie you still not be insured!

We paid £240 that can store 3 x 22 litres jerry cans rated at 30 mins.

We don't have our petrol in anything at the moment - it's just on cans on the floor in boathouse.

Is it actually a regulation? I thought it was just a sensible thing to do?

There are some on e-bay. One in Brum(£29 and reserve not met runs until 15th) and two Chester (£10 start one bid on one, none on the other both run until the 17th). All these are collection only.

It might also be worth looking at "Freecycle" if there are any groups near you.

there are regs re the storage of petroleum spirit.
People have been prosecuted for storing petrol at home in contravention of them.
Noteably the guy who was discovered with a 50gallon drum in his garage, during petrol shortages, after his neighbour smelt petrol fumes coming out of his toilet pan. The defendant had panicked after reading of the problems with storing petrol and had poured some away into the drains.
But having read the hse website the regs seem to have been relaxed a lot since I had to deal with them
http://www.hse.gov.uk/fireandexplosi...oleum-faqs.htm
Familiarity breeds contempt and its easy to forget the amount of potential energy stored within a gallon of petrol.

I've got a couple of half height (about 900mm) steel cabinets which may be of use. Leg me know and I'll post pics.

If Jizm isn't succesfull in selling you his, I've got a 1.8m long top loading one I could sell you, really heavy built but no lock. Would be easy to fit some angle iron to accomodate a couple of pad locks.
