What is Fire Hose Reel?
The Fire Hose Reel Invented by Jan van der Heyden, the Superintendent of the Fire Brigade in Amsterdam, the first fire hose in 1673 replaced the practice of using water buckets to fight fires. The first fire hoses were 15 meter lengths of leather sewn together like a boot leg. Nowadays most fire hose reels used on commercial and industrial properties are made of lightweight synthetic fabrics, whilst nozzles and connectors are constructed of brass or aluminum. .
While modern fire fighting equipment have been developed to control and contain fires, the fire-hose remains as the single, most important tool because of its unique ability to enable a fire fighter to gain access to the site of the blaze and control the direction of the water to completely douse the flames.
The older types of fire hose reel need to be hung after use because water that is left inside for extended periods can affect the fitting material. However, modern fire fittings are manufactured from more durable materials and allow fire hose to be stored even when wet without compromising the integrity of its material.
Modern hoses are also lightweight and they have been designed to withstand the effects of various chemicals and sunlight. As technology advances, new knowledge and materials are being integrated into the composition of existing hoses to further boost their efficiency.
