LP Gas is highly efficient and cost effective energy source. It is a clean burning, controllable fuel (being free of lead and sulphur), providing an alternative energy source in today’s society where environmental concerns are often at the forefront of consumers’ minds.
In cylinder format, LP Gas is highly versatile and mobile. Our cylinders are compatible with all gas appliances, whether a mobile heater, barbeque or patio heater and as such, Flogas bottled gas is the perfect accompaniment to today’s modern lifestyles.
Further information on the characterisitics, storage and transport of bottled LP Gas can be found in our Dealer Safety Booklet.
Flogas offers a comprehensive range of butane and propane cylinders. Butane cylinders range from 7kg to 11.34kg, while propane cylinders range from 10.89kg through to 47kg, with patio gas and forklift truck cylinders also available.
While all our cylinders meets stringent health and safety guidelines, Flogas use secure tamper-proof cylinder seals (Securiseal) for Flogas Butane and Propane cylinders. Such seals are a sign of a quality product and a guarantee that the cylinder is full and has been tested to the highest standards.
We can also provide expertise and support for those dealers wishing to expand their business by offering appliance sales.
Flogas has an excellent nationwide distribution system throughout Ireland. There are three marine gas terminals at Belfast, Drogheda and Cork and a land terminal at Ballyhaunis. We also operate through a nationwide network of distributors who fill and deliver bottled gas to dealers. Such distributors are strategically located throughout the country so that we can guarantee a first rate, prompt delivery service to all our dealers.
Flogas provide an ongoing programme of cylinder testing and upgrading. By recycling and refurbishing cylinders on a regular basis, we ensure that our cylinders continually satisfy the highest health and safety standards whilst strengthening Flogas’ brand image.
As a dealer, you can help us by always asking your customers for empty cylinders when they buy gas. If they don’t have empty cylinders, you should always charge the current cylinder service rate applicable.
Customer and Technical Services
Flogas offers an unbeatable level of support to our dealers. Our customer service team will react promptly to any queries that you may have, ensuring that that customers demands for quality, performance and value are constantly satisfied.
If your query is of a technical nature, a team of highly experience engineers, designers and technicians can advise on everything from installation and energy supply to gas usage and applications.
With safety being such a crucial issue, Flogas provide all dealers with a brochure covering all aspects of LP Gas safety. We also update dealers on relevant health and safety legislation that will impact upon their gas dealership and regularly organise fire safety training for those involved in the transportation and/or connection of cylinders.
