  • EASY INSTALLATION – From the moment you start operating our industrial quality compressed air piping system you will enjoy its trouble-free safe operations. But first, you will like the easy installation of our air compressor hose kit. Just have a plan as to the location of the air compressor and where you are going to mount the compressed air outlets, follow the step-by-step instructions we provide, and very soon you will have it seamlessly up and running.
  • NO LEAKS AIR SYSTEM – We offer a complete leak-proof compressed air supply solution for your shop or a garage, rolling up to 100 ft. Smooth interior walls of our piping rolls will never build upscale or rust. It is much more efficient than iron or PVC piping, and while reliably holding pressure, operates at 200 psi at 73F and 160 psi at 140F.
  • EASY TO CUT AND TERMINATE – No more pipe cutting, messy threading, or gluing! We provide you with a simple tool to make it effortless. MaxLine Master Kit has all components necessary to complete the installation.
  • BENDABLE AND FLEXIBLE - What a relief if compared with iron, copper, or PVC piping! Rolls with fewer joints allow not only faster installation but also make it easy to bend and keep in place. The aluminum lining of our rolls can create rigid but flexible layouts. The 3/4-inch inside diameter of the pipe has a bend radius of 6-8 inches and can be bent to any shape.
  • SCALABILITY – Perfect for shops or garages of any size and layout. You can purchase additional accessories if necessary, to expand or further customize your pneumatic line installation based on the requirements of pressurized air distribution.
