Our Multipurpose Delivery Hoses are also available in a Fire Resistant configuration.

Special high strength synthetic textile cord fabric layers along with an 'eGlass' cover are used.
The hose carcase is protected by a thick layer of material made from a specially formulated flame resistant Neoprene rubber, giving excellent resistance to oils, sunlight, weathering and abrasion. Finally, a non-toxic eGlass woven fabric layer is firmly bonded to the outside of the Neoprene rubber cover giving fire and heat resistance, allowing normal operation at temperatures of up to 6000C.
