Store and use helium cylinders in a well ventilated area and in a upright secured position so they cannot be knocked over.Helium Cylinders Must Be Secured At All Times.

Close the cylinder valve after each use and when cylinder is empty. Remove the regulator and replace the cylinder protective cap before transporting any helium cylinders.

Do not allow anyone to breathe helium from cylinders or filled balloons.

Do not open the cylinder valve before attaching a balloon regulator on the cylinder valve.

Do not allow children or any unauthorized people to handle cylinders or use balloon filling equipment.

Never Leave A Helium Cylinder Unattended In A Public Area.

Never use any balloon regulator, cylinder or valve fitting that is damaged, leaking or malfunctioning. Have the product repaired or replaced immediately.

Do not drop, drag, tip over or roll the helium cylinder on its side.

Helium is a colorless, non-toxic, non-flammable gas which is lighter than air. It is considered an inactive gas and relatively safe to handle.

When miss used, however; it can cause serious injuries or death. Helium acts as a simple asphyxiant displacing oxygen. If the body is deprived of oxygen, even for a short period of time, DEATH or serious injury may occur.

Exposure to atmospheres containing reduced oxygen (increased helium) will bring about unconsciousness without warning - so quickly, that you will not be able to help yourself.

Helium Tank

If you’re planning a party, our helium tank rental service makes it easy for you to inflate as many balloons as you need. Using helium allows you to create floating balloon bouquets, balloon displays, and much more. You can book our helium tank hire in the Central Coast, Sydney, and all The Base Warehouse locations — and it couldn’t be easier to do.

Helium tank rental is easy at The Base Warehouse

If you’d like to book a helium tank rental, it’s easy to arrange. Simply call your nearest branch, ideally a few days in advance to give us time to sort out a tank for you, and then come and pick it up on the agreed date. We’ll need to see an Australian driver’s licence as ID, and you’ll need to pay a small security deposit.

When you rent a helium tank in Sydney or at any of our branches, you’ll get a choice of sizes to suit your needs. Our smallest tank will inflate about 50 standard-sized latex balloons, plenty for a kids’ party or decorating a small venue. If you’re looking for a large helium tank rental, our largest tank can inflate up to 300 balloons, so it’s perfect for those hosting a big event.

Our inflation service is perfect for smaller orders

If you’re just looking to have a few balloons inflated, then you may want to consider using our inflation service instead. We can offer in-store inflation of latex or foil balloons, and also offer balloon arrangements and foil letters and numbers.

The Base Warehouse offers helium tank rental in all our branches. If you want to book helium hire, simply pick up the phone and we’ll sort it out for you.
