Built to Last: Cylinder Cradles That Go the Distance

Medical Gas Supplies | Cylinder Storage

Cylinder cradles and manifolds are staple items at Ratermann, and we offer a wide range of high-quality options to suit a variety of needs. For customers who are not quite ready for a micro-bulk, our 12 and 16-pack options bridge the gap for increased demand. 


Ratermann Cylinder Cradles

Quality construction for longevity

Ratermann’s cylinder cradles are powder-coated with a variety of color options to match your company’s branding. (Galvanized options are also available.) In addition, you can request a custom cutout of your company name for quick identification on customer sites. A seven-gauge steel top provides top-notch protection as well as a strong lift point you can trust. 

Cradles can withstand any weather, thanks to a bottom drain that prevents standing water from damaging the bottom of cylinders as well as the cradle itself. In-line casters are an optional add-on that allow for a full 360-degree swivel.

Available models include a six-pack forklift style, low-profile, and available rigid or flexible pigtails. We also offer custom replacement manifolds, also with a selection of rigid or flexible pigtails and suitable for a variety of gasses from argon and CO2 to nitrogen, oxygen and other special gasses.

10-year inspection exemption

Due to the high-quality construction and design of these cradles, you can apply for a 10-year inspection exemption (DOT-SP 14175), which is a huge benefit. All cradles ship fully assembled and stamped with a serial number. Additionally, cradles have been designed with open sight to the cylinder bottoms for five and 10 year inspections.

Key Features:

  • Durable powder coated paint
  • Galvanization options
  • Drains to protect cradle bottoms and withstand any weather
  • Seven-guage steel top for protection and strong lift point
  • Optional six inline castor design for 360-degree swivel
