Fourtis®Innovation is green.

Amtrol-Alfa’s Type IV composite cylinder sets out to become the high watermark of its class. Green at heart, the Fourtis® is a fully recyclable product, but doesn’t compromise its quality to save on end-of-life costs. Also built to last, the Fourtis® is a thoroughly resistant product – and not just to impact, but also to corrosion and permeability. All this wrapped inside a customizable, easy to clean and finely designed jacket. The Fourtis® is not just eco-friendly, it’s eco-passionate.

The 'Four Elements' Technology

POLYMERIC JACKET – Featuring finely crafted design, the UV resistant jacket is stackable with compatible cylinders and features ergonomic handles. It is also demountable, making the reassembling easy. IMPACT RESISTANCE DESIGN – A differentiating concept, the innovative design helps to dissipate the energy from physical impacts on the top and the bottom of the cylinder. COMPOSITE LAYER – Between the liner and the cover rests the glass fiber with PP matrix composite structure (fully recyclable), increasing lightness, strength and resistance to impact. POLYMERIC LINER – This polymeric liner with integrated barrier film ensures high impermeability.
