Fire Hose Reels

Fire Hose Reels are a readily accessible product and a water source for dealing with Class A fire risk. There are a range of Fire Hose Reels designed to meet specific needs. Fire hose reels are located at strategic points and exit paths for a reasonably accessible and controlled supply of water to extinguish fire. Fire hose reel systems are made up of pumps, pipes, water supply and hose reels located to ensure proper coverage of water to combat a fire. Manual systems are activated by releasing a valve, which enables the water to flow through the hose. A pump will automatically kick in on the loss of water pressure, ensuring constant water flow and pressure for a jet of water typically 10M from the nozzle. Proper installation, maintenance and replacement of fire hose reels is paramount to proper function. Ensuring hoses operate safely and effectively is an essential part of keeping building occupants safe from fire, so if negligence causes or exacerbates fire, there can be severe legal ramifications. Ensuring premises are properly protected from fire also means protecting business staff, patrons and your own financial future.

History of Fire Hose Reels

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 aluminium. .
