What Is A Double Layered (Jacket) Fire Hose?
Fire hoses come in two styles: single and double "jacket" or "layer". The difference is just that, single or double layers. Adding an extra layer to your fire hose doubles the lifespan and gives it a higher service pressure rating. Our single jackets fire hoses have a service pressure of 250 PSI, whereas double jacket hoses are 400 PSI. With these key differences, you can easily choose which is best for your application.
Simply put, double jacketed fire hoses are the strongest in the world. It's the top choice if you're looking for quality and durability. This hose will easily last 10 years. It's the "go-to" choice for municipal fire departments and heavy duty industrial companies for it's tough strength and lightweight maneuverability. This hose WILL get the job done!
- High service pressure 400 psi rating and lightweight double jacket construction lead to a higher performing hose.
- Woven polyester material never needs drying and can be stored wet. Hose is immune to mold and rot. Can be stored for long periods of time without degradation.
- Can be run over with large trucks without bursting - even while pressurized.
- Strong inside rubber lining leads to less friction loss and more water flow.
- Operate in extreme temperatures without worry -40 degrees F to 180 degrees F.
This fire hose will not disappoint. The abrasion resistant, heavy duty double jacket hose provides the durability you need for applications requiring prolonged storage. Manufactured per NFPA 1961 and Factory Mutual standards, single jacket fire hose assemblies feature spun polyester yarn that offers superior strength and wear characteristics. If required, couplings for double wall hoses are available with expansion ring-threaded aluminum or brass, Storz, shank-threaded, or Camlock styles.
