A fire hose is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it. Outdoors, it attaches either to a fire engine or a fire hydrant. Indoors, it can permanently attach to a building’s standpipe or plumbing system.
Attack hose is a fabric-covered, flexible hose used to bring water from the fire pumper to the nozzle. This hose ranges in nominal inside diameter from 1.5“ to 3” and is designed to operate at pressures up to about 400 psi. The standard lengths are 50, 75’ and 100’, with custom lengths built to meet specific requirements.
The jackets are woven evenly and free of defects, from spun polyester yarn that offers superior strength
and wear characteristics. The warp yarn is standard 100% polyester. The filler yarns are high strength,
low elongation, filament polyester to reduce weight and increase flexibility. In addition the jacket is
treated to resist mold and mildew.
The rubber lining is a single ply, extruded, synthetic EPDM tube, compounded to resist ozone. Under
this specification, the construction of this hose is to be manufactured fully backed.
As required per specification(s). Available with internal expansion ring threaded aluminum or brass.
