During water supply applications, fire hose couplings are utilised to swiftly connect and disengage hoses. They come in a variety of configurations, such as BS 336 instantaneous fittings, which are mainly used by the British fire brigade as the standard low pressure fire fitting, Storz couplings, which have two identical locking heads and are used all over Europe, and Barcelona fittings, which are mainly used in Spain.
The BS 336 instantaneous fire hose couplings are the most often used and come in aluminium or gunmetal. They may be quickly connected to our selection of hydrant valves, nozzles, standpipes, and dividing breechings (which all have a maximum working pressure of 16 Bar or 232 psi). Underground hydrants with an uniformly drilled PN10/16 and BS10 table D/E are WRAS-approved.
Manufactured from aluminium or gunmetal to BS 336. Instantaneous couplings have a maximum working pressure of 16 Bar (232 psi) and are used to deliver water in firefighting applications. They are available with hose tails, BSP threads, caps and plugs.
Available in aluminium, brass and stainless steel. Storz couplings have an identical locking head with no separate male or female halves. They have a maximum working pressure of 16 Bar (232 psi) and are commonly used in fire fighting applications.
Barcelona couplings have three interlocking lugs that enable quick connection and disconnection. They are manufactured from either aluminium or brass to Spanish standard UNE 23400 and are available with hose tails, BSP threads and caps.
