Fire Hoses

What is the importance of a fire hose?

Fire Hoses will help provide unlimited water supply to extinguish fires and protect against the heat. They can extinguish a fire up to ten times greater than fire extinguishers.

The difference in bar values between fire hoses relates to the maximum pressure they can handle.  The choice between a 16 bar or 20 bar fire hose depends on specific firefighting needs and the water supply available. Industries with higher fire risks may require the higher pressure capabilities of a 20 bar fire hose, while smaller commercial or residential settings may find a 16 bar fire hose sufficient. The round hose is suitable for scenarios that require flexibility and maneuverability, such as navigating tight spaces or complex environments. SABS approval signifies that a fire hose meets the stipulated safety and quality standards.

Description

The two types of fire hoses are the Lay Flat 16 Bar and the 20 Bar Lay Flat fire hose with widths of 65mm. The first type of fire hose is designed to withstand a maximum pressure of 16 bar (or 16 kilograms per square centimeter) during firefighting operations. The 65mm width refers to the diameter of the hose, which determines the volume of water that can flow through it.

The second type is the 20 bar lay flat fire hose, with a width of 65mm. This fire hose is capable of handling higher pressure, with a maximum rating of 20 bar. The width allows for more flexibility and ease of handling in certain situations.

The difference in bar values between the 16 bar and 20 bar fire hoses relates to the maximum pressure that each hose can handle. A higher bar value indicates that the hose can withstand greater pressure without bursting or leaking. The choice between the two types of fire hoses depends on the specific firefighting needs and the water supply available. If higher pressure is required to reach and extinguish fires effectively, the 20 bar fire hose would be preferred. However, if lower pressure is sufficient for the intended firefighting applications, the 16 bar fire hose is a viable option.

SABS is the South African Bureau of Standards. When a fire hose is labeled as SABS approved, it means that it has undergone testing and certification by this regulatory body in South Africa to ensure compliance with safety and quality standards. SABS approval adds an extra layer of assurance that the fire hose meets the necessary requirements for reliable and effective firefighting.

Certain business types may require either the 16 bar or the 20 bar fire hoses based on specific fire risks and needs. Industries where the presence of flammable materials or the potential for larger fires exists, such as chemical plants, oil refineries, and large industrial facilities, may benefit from the higher pressure capabilities of the 20 bar fire hose. These establishments may have more demanding firefighting requirements and need the additional pressure to combat fires effectively.

On the other hand, the 16 bar fire hose may be suitable for smaller commercial buildings, retail spaces, offices, and residential areas where firefighting needs are typically less intense. It can be used effectively in situations where a lower water pressure is sufficient to control and extinguish fires.

The rounded fire hose, or simply referred to as a round hose, has a circular cross-section. It is typically used in applications where durability, resistance to kinks, and easy maneuverability are critical. The round hose is often used in firefighting operations that require rapid deployment and flexibility. It can be easily maneuvered around obstacles and is less prone to tangling or twisting. Certain firefighting scenarios, such as high-rise buildings, confined spaces, or densely populated areas, may require the use of a round hose to navigate tight corners and narrow spaces.
