    LCX® composite SCBA cylinders

    LCX cylinders are up to 70% lighter than steel cylinders and up to 30% lighter than all-aluminum cylinders with the same gas capacity.

LCX® composites are now the most widely used SCBA and life-support cylinders in North America. Available in a wide range of sizes, LCX cylinders are up to 70% lighter than steel cylinders and up to 30% lighter than all-aluminum cylinders with the same gas capacity.

All carbon-wrapped models have a five-year requalification cycle. LCX cylinders are approved to applicable Department of Transportation (DOT) and Transport Canada (TC) standards and are designed and manufactured to meet all NFPA, NIOSH and OEM requirements.
