PAC’s Cylinder Mate: Securing SCBA solutions

May 9, 2024

Performance Advantage Company’s Cylinder Mate is setting new standards in SCBA storage

Ensuring the safety and readiness of emergency response teams starts with how their equipment is stored and maintained.

Tool mounting solutions should be designed to offer peace of mind, knowing that SCBA cylinders are protected, easily accessible, and ready for immediate use.

Performance Advantage Company’s latest offerings, the Extended Cylinder Mate – CM6060 and Standard Cylinder Mate – CM6000, present a sturdy approach to SCBA cylinder storage.

These products are designed to cater to the needs of fire and safety professionals by ensuring secure and efficient storage solutions for self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) cylinders.

The Extended Cylinder Mate – CM6060 and Standard Cylinder Mate – CM6000 are made using high-quality materials, ensuring durability and resistance against weather and UV damage.

These units are specifically engineered to self-center SCBA cylinders, providing protection from impact from any direction.

This feature is critical for maintaining the integrity of SCBA cylinders, which are essential for the safety of firefighters and emergency responders.

Secure straps

Both versions of the Cylinder Mate come equipped with a high-strength locking strap.

These straps ensure the air cylinder is securely retained, with a simple latching and removal process that enhances the efficiency of emergency response teams.

The non-conductive material used in the manufacturing of these storage solutions adds an extra layer of safety, particularly in environments where electrical hazards are present.

One of the standout features of the Cylinder Mate is its ability to allow pressure readings while the cylinder is contained.

This facilitates quick checks on the readiness of equipment, ensuring that teams are always prepared for immediate action.

Additionally, the design of the Cylinder Mate enables safe and straightforward storage and removal of empty cylinders when installed backwards, simplifying inventory management and readiness for refills.

The Extended Cylinder Mate – CM6060 accommodates bottles up to 25 inches in length, while the Standard Cylinder Mate – CM6000 is suitable for bottles up to 23 1/8 inches.

This versatility ensures that Performance Advantage Company’s storage solutions can cater to a wide range of SCBA cylinders used across different fire and rescue services.

Matching mounting holes on both versions allow individual Cylinder Mates to be combined into larger storage units, offering scalability and adaptability for fire stations and emergency response vehicles.

This feature underscores the company’s commitment to providing modular and flexible solutions that can grow with the needs of fire and safety professionals.

Essential equipment

Performance Advantage Company’s Cylinder Mate series represents a significant advancement in SCBA storage technology.

These products are designed to offer superior protection and convenience whilst underscoring the company’s dedication to supporting the critical work of fire and safety professionals.

With their innovative features and robust design, the Extended and Standard Cylinder Mates are set to become essential components in the equipment arsenals of emergency response teams around the world.
