Type 3 fire fighting hose is made from a woven textile but, unlike Type 2 that is just outer-coated, this hose is totally encased in rubber nitrile that stops kinking, helps flow rates, is resistant to oil and most chemicals and does not need drying. Our layflat fire hose meets the UK Home Office Specification JCDD 1/1.
If you are likely to use the hose quite often, you need Type 3. The outer surface is ribbed and will survive the rigours of being run across rough ground. It is also easy to repair. See the options for length, diameter and coupling material. Storz and other international couplings can be supplied quickly with prices on request.
