Leading Manufacturer, Supplier & Retailer of TPX rubber fire hose, HFX rubber fire hose, kryptonite, FLX rubber fire hose and 8T rubber fire hose.
Lean and mean, TPX is the ultra-tough municipal rubber fire hose—but without bulk and weight. Traditionally manufactured extruded hose can vary in thickness, becoming bulky and heavy. TPX’s unique 3-ply design features a ribbed cover and smooth nitrile liner that are extruded independently. The cover is inserted inside the tight-weave polyester reinforcement, vulcanized, then turned inside-out. The liner is then inserted and the hose is vulcanized a second time to form a bond of all three plies, guaranteeing a consistent, compact hose wall. This makes the lightweight TPX more resistant to puncture and easier to pack and store, requiring less hose bed space than typical extruded hose.
Maneuverable. Packable. Dependable. HFX’s nitrile thru-the-weave, rubber covered hose design utilizes both polyester and nylon 6.6 yarn in the reinforcing jacket. Under pressure, the polyester keeps the hose from “snaking” where the nylon allows for controlled dilation, reducing friction loss and generating higher flow rates. A special rubber compound creates a tough cover that resists heat, abrasion, snags and hot embers, giving you complete confidence on the fireground. Super. Strong. Reinforced with a blend of circular woven, twill weave, polyester and nylon fibers, this interlocking matrix means no adhesives are used. A permanent bond to all warp and filler yarns creates unmatched durability—highly resistant to both contact and radiant heat.
LARGE DIAMETER POLYURETHANE SUPPLY HOSE Kryptonite™ LDH is the ultimate fighter, delivering maximum flow and high-test durability in a high-visibility, lightweight supply line. Engineered with a rugged polyurethane thru-the-weave construction, this high-performance hose delivers superior abrasion and puncture resistance while remaining extremely light and durable, making Kryptonite the optimum choice for a service worthy supply line. Lightweight. Kryptonite weighs 20% less than conventional rubber supply hose.
FLX sets the performance standard for light duty water discharge. Conventionally extruded rubber hose can vary in thickness, creating excess bulk and weight. But FLX is different by design: The cover is inserted inside the tight-weave reinforcement, vulcanized, then turned inside-out. The liner is then inserted and the hose is vulcanized for a second time, forming a permanent bond of all three plies–guaranteeing a consistent and compact hose wall. The result is an exceptionally strong and tough hose with a lay-flat design that makes FLX easy to deploy and store.
LIGHTWEIGHT POLYESTER DOUBLE JACKET HOSE Versatility meets rugged dependability: 8T is the double jacket municipal-grade fire hose that incorporates a lightweight polyurethane liner for added strength, but with no added bulk to weigh you down. It meets all the requirements of NFPA 1961 Standard, and with optional Dura-Cote™ protective treatment, it is an exceptional value with industry-leading abrasion and puncture resistance, and an extended service life. Durable. High-quality, double jacket, municipal fire hose made from 100% high tensile strength ring-spun polyester yarn along with a lining of thermoplastic polyurethane for reduced weight while remaining kink resistant.
