‘Luxfer cylinders have been around for a long time and firefighters trust that they’re going to work every time.’
- Chief David Rhodes, Georgia Smoke Diver 339
Over 20 million Luxfer SCBA cylinders are in use today all across the world, and nearly every firefighter in the USA trusts Luxfer to have their back.
12,000 miles (19,000 km) of carbon fiber filament are used to make each cylinder – that’s enough to reach halfway around the world.
