NOTTINGHAM, England (May 16, 2006) – Visitors to the Luxfer Gas Cylinders stand at the high-profile Rettmobil Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services exhibition in Fulda, Germany, were invited to consider the dramatic weight savings, increased gas capacity and easy portability offered by a cylinder range made from Luxfer’s patented L7X aluminium alloy.

The lighter-weight Luxfer Medical range of L7X-alloy cylinders helps reduce occupational injuries during patient and equipment handling while providing more gas for resuscitation and pain relief in emergency care.

Now in its sixth year, Rettmobil is Europe’s largest dedicated emergency services exhibition, attracting more than 15,000 visitors, including paramedics, firefighters and rescue workers. Veronique McKellican, Luxfer’s marketing director said: “Rettmobil, once again, was a highly successful exhibition for Luxfer. The event provided us a unique opportunity to demonstrate weight-saving advantages of our Luxfer Medical L7X-alloy cylinders to European crews still using heavy steel cylinders.”
