Code of practice for domestic butane- and propane-gas-burning installations - Part 1: Installations at permanent dwellings, residential park homes and commercial premises, with installation pipework sizes not exceeding DN 25 for steel and DN 28 for corrugated stainless steel or copper

Executive summary

Recommendations for the installation of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) supply systems at permanent dwellings, residential park homes, and small commercial premises.

Abstract

This Part of BS 5482 provides guidance and recommendations for the installation of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) supply systems at permanent dwellings, including residential park homes, and small commercial premises, with installation pipework sizes not exceeding DN 25 for steel and DN 28 for corrugated stainless steel or copper. It applies to systems using either commercial propane from cylinders or bulk supply at a pressure of 37 mbar, or commercial butane from cylinders at a pressure of 28 mbar.

This British Standard makes recommendations on the selection of materials and components, on design considerations, on installation, on inspection and testing and on user instructions.

This standard does not cover the installation requirements of bulk tanks supplying LPG.

Appliances incorporating their own gas supply, such as mobile heaters, are not considered to be part of the installation and are thus outside the scope of this standard.

This standard does not cover leisure accommodation vehicles.
