Numerous residential, business, and industrial applications—such as industrial fire brigades, irrigation, agriculture, construction, and civil works—involve layflat hose assemblies. Layflat hoses are intended to expand when under pressure and to retract to their original, flat shape after all pressure has been released. They are mostly used for the transportation of water, liquids, and chemicals.
We can offer layflat hoses with various features for applications that call for particular qualities. For instance, our assortment of layflat fire hoses is designed to withstand a range of pressure ratings, and our rubber and TPU grades have received WRAS approval, making them appropriate for applications involving potable (drinking) water.
Instantaneous fire hose couplings are provided with our assortment of layflat hose assemblies as standard, but different couplings are available upon request.
