XLITEInnovation is light.

The lightest and most ergonomic steel cylinder ever manufactured, with millions of cylinders in use worldwide. A thin layer of high strength steel ensures optimal resistance while keeping the weight to a minimum, saving on transport costs. The polymeric shroud provides ergonomic and easy handling for domestic and leisure use. The interior of the cylinder is a bright, clean surface, rendering the XLITE perfect for forklift use.

Durability

The innovative, high strength steel provides the XLITE with increased durability, allowing it to be lighter while maintaining the expected cylinder resistance.

The polymeric shroud is made out of fully recyclable thermoplastic, and ensures both safety and comfort in handling. Both the shroud and cylinder coating have passed the particularly demanding product class tests.
