Responsive Respiratory has released new DOT-compliant vehicle cylinder restraints for cylinder transport.
The new restraints secure oxygen cylinders in an upright position to eliminate shifting, rolling or ejecting in the event of sudden stops, accidents or roll-overs during delivery, as required by DOT regulations (DOT 49, CFR, CH1, 177.840).
Made from heavy-duty netting, the restraints secure to most manufacturer’s racks via pulling a strap.
“It comes down to safety,” said Tom Bannon, RRI President in a prepared statement “These vehicle cylinder restraints are precautionary measure and a necessity for anyone transporting cylinders.”
The restraints use a universal sizing system, so that providers can properly size them to an existing rack rather than purchasing an enclosed metal cage.
