Fire Hose Reel
A fire hose reel is a first attack piece of fire-fighting equipment. It is designed to be used as a quick-response method by any member of the general public for fighting fires in their early stages. Hose Reels are suitable for Class A fires (Paper, Textiles, Wood, Most Plastics and Rubber).
Do NOT use on electrical fires. Remember water conducts electricity, so using a fire hose reel on it could lead to electrocution!
Fire Hose Reels are easy to use, provide a virtually unlimited supply of water, as they are connected to the mains water supply, and should extend for approximately 35 meters.
Fire Hose reels consist of a length of non-kinking tubing. They are permanently connected to a water supply and consist of a main turn on/off valve, a hose guide, and a hose with a nozzle. The control nozzle attached to the end of the hose enables the operator to control the direction and flow of water to the fire.
