Covers for Cylinders

Breathing air cylinders cover and protect your most valuable asset – under a high pressure. The quality of this security comes at a price. Your breathing apparatuses were designed to withstand most environmental hazards. Compressed air cylinders, however, can already lose operational safety by superficial damage and can become unusable. So it is worth to keep your cylinders undamaged and clean while they are in use under protected conditions.

Our protective covers meet all basic needs for the protection of your cylinders.

Easy to use, safe and reliable

Basic covers

  • Blended fabric, which surface is protected by a special weave with a flame-resistant thread.
  • The special impregnation is used to repel water, dust, oils and grease.
  • The inner padding is located on the bottom of the bottle and offers optimal impact protection.
  • The cover is closable with a cord on the neck of the cylinder
  • A reflector print ensures increased visibility, even in low light situations.
  • The Design fits for all typical 6.8 liter cylinders

eXXtreme Covers

  • The selected mix of the fabric layers and threads is stretchable which increases the flexibility and makes the case extremely resistant against external damage.
  • Thick blended fabric (Nomex-Viscose-Lycra), which surface is protected by a special weave with a flame-resistant
  • Nomex thread. A foam layer within the fabric also protects the bottle better against shocks.
  • The special impregnation is used to repel water, dust, oils and grease.
  • The inner padding is located on the bottom of the bottle and offers optimal impact protection.
  • The cover is closable with a robust zipper on the neck of the cylinder in order to limit the potential contact surface for a flame attack on the cylinder.
  • Velcro locking prevents accidental opening.
  • A perfect visibility in any situation ensures a large reflector print in combination with a special luminescent stripe on top and bottom.
  • The applied handle loop provides an ideal carrying comfort.

alphaCLICK High Pressure Coupling System

alphaCLICK is the high pressure coupling system for very simple and rapid connection of compressed air cylinders to the pressure reducer. Now enhanced with new safety features on adapter and coupling.

SPEED – allows changing cylinders at ten times the speed of normal threading
SAFETY – unique flow restrictor in the cylinder adapter avoids uncontrolled air flow and the safety release  in the coupling is a two-step disconnection sequence to avoid unintended opening.
VERSATILITY – approved for and fits on all 200 bar or 300 bar standard threaded cylinder valves, on all AirMaXX, AirGo and BD96 SCBAs and on filling panels

alphaCLICK – Filling Coupling
