First Responders

Luxfer lightweight high-pressure cylinders help reduce strains, sprains and muscular pain caused by carrying extra weight. Favored by firefighters due to their lightness of weight and durability in self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBAs), Luxfer's L6X® composite cylinders are now also widely used by paramedics and other emergency first-responders. For emergency situations requiring additional oxygen content, Luxfer's L7X® high-strength, higher-pressure aluminum cylinders provide more gas in the same traditional-sized package.
