36 metres of Layflat firefighting hose with fittings and firefighting nozzle
Layflat fire hose is used by fire services around Australia and the world. It’s very simple 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. Reducing fatigue of the operator.
Being very tough and durable it will perform well when charged to pressures above that of 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 difficult to control.
This fire hose Kit also comes with a number of fittings and is ready to couple to a firefighting pump and start fighting a fire. The standard length for this type of fire hose is normally 30 metres, but this one gives you an extra 6 metres and is 36 metres long.
Even though the manufacturer indicates that the hose can be placed in storage wet this will reduce the life of the fire hose. All layflat hose should be washed and dried after use.
