Weight Un-Coupled 100' (30.5M) 9 lbs. (4.1kg) 13.5 lbs. (6.1kg)
Coil Diameter 100' (30.5M) 17 in. (43.2cm) 17 in. (43.2cm)
Service Pressure 300 PSI (2070 kPa) 300 PSI (2070 kPa)
Proof Pressure 600 PSI (4140 kPa) 600 PSI (4140 kPa)
Burst Pressure 1000 PSI (6900 kPa) 1000 PSI (6900 kPa)

The jacket shall be made with virgin spun polyester warp yarn and a filament polyester weft yarn and shall have a minimum filler (weft) yarns of 10.4 per inch (409 per Meter). The outer jacket shall be impregnated in Strome Yellow color with high performance polymeric dispersion.

The lining (waterway) must be made from polyurethane and must be applied using a fused process that welds the polyurethane directly to the textile while the hose is being woven, without the use of adhesives or hot melt. The fused lining process must create a virtually inseparable unit without the use of adhesives, yielding an extreamely low friction (pressure) loss by filling in the corrugations of the weave, creating an ultra thin and smooth waterway. Fire hose made using adhesives of any type do not meet this specification. The lining shall be approved for use with potable water.

The adhesion shall be such that the rate of separation of a 1.5" / 38mm strip of polyurethane, transversely cute, shall not be greater than .25" / 6mm per minute under weight of 12 lbs / 5.5kg.

Services, Test, Burst Pressures:
Minimum service, test and burst pressures shall be as detailed in the specification table above.

Flow and Friction Loss:
The 1.5" / 38mm hose shall be capable of flowing 70 US GPM (264 LPM) with a maximum pressure loss of 10 PSIG (69 kPa) per 100' (30.5M)

Kink Test:
A full length will withstand a hydrostatic pressure of 600 psi / 4140 kPa while kinked.

Each length of fire hose shall not weigh more than indicated in specification table above.

Coupling Specifications:
Couplings shall be in conformance with the current NFPA standard and made of extruded aluminum, hard coated a minimum of .002" think. They shall be manufactured in North America and permanently labeled with country of origin. The hose shall be available with threaded and quarter-turn threadless (QC) couplings. When quarter-turn threadless (QC) couplings are specified they shall have extended lugs to facilitate rapid connect and disconnect.

Both hose and couplings must be manufactured in North America and be NAFTA compliant.

Fire hoses manufactured to this specification shall meet or exceed all performance requirements of NFPA 1961, Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada Spec S518.1, Factory Mutual and USDA Spec 5100-187C Type II for 1" (25mm) and 1.5" (38mm)

      Dennis, you will have to call into our call center/customer service 800 line, and talk directly to one of the call takers. Tell him/her what you want to place an order, but with out the NH couplings, it's a glitch in our system, they should walk you through the order process.
