What general requirements apply to storage of containers?

(1) Containers in storage must be located to minimize exposure to excessive temperature rise, physical damage, or tampering.
(2) Containers stored inside must be located away from exits, stairways, or in areas normally used or intended for the safe exit of people.
(3) Container valves must be protected while in storage as follows:
(a) By setting into recess of container to prevent the possibility of their being struck if the container is dropped upon a flat surface; or
(b) By ventilated cap or collar, fastened to container capable of withstanding blow from any direction equivalent to that of a thirty-pound weight dropped four feet. Construction must be such that a blow will not be transmitted to a valve or other connection.
(4) The outlet valves of containers in storage must be closed.
(5) Empty containers that have been in LP-gas service should preferably be stored in the open. When stored inside, they must be considered full containers for the purpose of determining the maximum quantity of LP-gas permitted by this section.
