Why buy from Thickwall Cylinders?

Steve Luniss, Owner of Thickwall Cylinders


Thickwall Cylinders was started in 1999 as a small hobby business and has developed over the years into an established brand providing great quality products with customer service to match. In 2011, we moved the business to the North Norfolk Coast. We’re a small growing business. The workshop sits at the rear of an Coastguard Station and we manufacture all cylinders to order here. We carefully fulfill every order and can follow through any problems or queries personally. That is why Thickwall Cylinders has a strong reputation over the web for quality products and customer services and are recommended regularly on Yahoo web groups, Newart Forums, and various other websites and forum. We now offer the widest range of vacuum toys available in the world along with custom sizes made to order.

Product Information:

Thickwall Cylinders are made from cast acrylic which is manufactured to ISO 9000. Cast acrylic was developed for the windows of submersibles and for high pressure vessels in industry, so it’s highly durable.

We are so confident of our quality that our cylinders are guaranteed for one year against faults of manufacture. Pumps are guaranteed for 3 months. (Statutory rights under UK law are not affected).

  • Warm soapy water is sufficient for cleaning.
  • Do NOT use petroleum based products on any part of the cylinders or pumps  as  this will cause cosmetic crazing and may cause mechanisms to degrade.
  • They are NOT dishwasher proof – the detergent degrades the acrylic and the connector.
  • A full guide to safe pumping can be found on the website menu and is sent with each cylinder.
  • Tube sizes are in millimetres, measurements are given to the nearest equivalent inch and displayed in inches. Please ensure you order the correct size since cylinders cannot be returned once used. See our guide on How to measure.
