Know Your Fire Hose Reel

Fire Hose Reels provide a reasonably accessible and controlled supply of water to a fire to extinguish it.  All Fire Products Direct Fire Hose Reels comply with Australian Standard

Fire Hose Reels use a variety of natural and synthetic fabrics in their construction. These materials allow the hoses to be stored wet without rotting and to resist the damaging effects of exposure to sunlight and chemicals. Modern hoses are lighter weight and this has helped reduce the physical strain on fire fighters.



Fire Hose Reel provides an easy approach the location of the fire and controlled it. In case of fire, it is not necessary to set up a very long hose. Also, this reel gives a controlled stream of water to the source of fire. A red round 36-metre long fire hose reel is the most common of its kind and it has 19mm semi-rigid round tube fixedly attached to a wall.

 

The valves can be automatic or manual. Before running out the hose, you have to turn on the gate valve to let the water into the system. By doing this, the hose is free from frost and other damages. On the other hand, the automatic valve keeps the water permanently on. However, when the reel is being run out, the automatic valve saves time and effort because just a simple twist of the hose reel nozzle will allow the water flow from the hose. It is then ideal for emergencies.

 

 After use, a fire hose is usually hung to dry because standing water that remains in a hose for a long time can deteriorate the material and render it unreliable or unusable. Therefore, the typical fire station often has a high structure to accommodate the length of a hose for such preventative maintenance.
