This fire hose kit with all the fittings is ideally suited to a small bushfire fighting unit mounted on a trailer or vehicle. Suitable for use in Australia. It provides you with the ability to deploy when the going gets challenging quickly. Furthermore, this fire hose is long enough to reach right around a vehicle. They allow the operator to dismount and blackout the fire edge while the driver safely moves the car.
You can place a suction hose and filter into the vehicle water tank or in a dam or other static water supply to refill the vehicle-mounted water tank.

2″ Heavy Duty Bush Fire Discharge Hose Kit
Fire protection in remote areas is primarily a do-it-yourself project. With no road to our house, the small volunteer fire brigade couldn’t come here to help, and with only a few neighbours, we’d have few options in the event of a fire. When it came to building a house in the bush on a tight budget, fire protection seem to take a low priority.

The Suction Hose
Consider a suction hose to be similar to a vacuum cleaner hose. Instead of dust and dirt, it draws water from lakes, rivers, wells, pools, and other bodies of water to transport to a fire.
The pump’s capacity determines the hose diameter, and three standard sizes are commonly used: 75mm, 100mm, and 140mm. With this kit, you get 5 metres of 1-1/2″ (40mm) Suction hose
Hose for Delivery
When most people think of a fire hose, they envision a delivery hose. It’s a hose that delivers pressurized water or another type of fire retardant to a fire. The delivery hose included here is a 19mm or 3/4″ rubber hose which is UV stabilized and chemical resistant. The hose, nozzle and fittings also conform to AS1221.
36 metres of Layflat firefighting hose with fittings and firefighting nozzle
Fire services around Australia use lay flat hoses. It’s straightforward to deploy. I.e. rolling the fire hose out while there is no water in it, and once it reaches its objective can then be charged. It is reducing the fatigue of the operator.
Being very tough and durable, it will perform well when charged to pressures above conventional rubber hose and has an operating pressure of 200bar (2000kpa). Most fire fighting pumps supply pressures around 700kpa at the nozzle for effective firefighting. Larger pressures/flows only make the fire hose more challenging to control.
This fire hose Kit also comes with several fittings and is ready to couple to a firefighting pump and start fighting a fire. The standard length for this type of fire hose usually is 30 metres, but this one gives you an extra 6 metres and is 36 metres long.
Even though the manufacturer indicates that you can place the hose in storage wet, this will reduce the life of the fire hose. All lay-flat hoses should be washed and dried after use.
Features of this fire hose:
- Canvas weave material
- 36 metres in length
- 1 ½ inch brass BSP threaded coupling for the nozzle end
- Quick deploy Aluminium Camlock fitting for the delivery side of the pump
- Fire hose Weight is 7.4kg
Raptor 50mm x 5 metre PVC fire suction hose
Good quality Suction fire hose is essential for every fire fighting pump in Australia. Inferior quality hoses tend to be stiff and very hard to handle, whereas this suction hose is flexible though tough and fit for purpose.
Whether you’re connecting a vehicle-mounted water tank to a firefighting pump or setting up the pump with sufficient suction fire hose to place in a dam or other static water source, this suction hose will help you achieve your goal simply and effectively.

Firefighting can be a dangerous activity, and one should be well equipped and trained when taking on such a task. Even though we would always suggest formal training, you can get some great firefighting and fire hose tips from Youtube.
