Angus Fire’s Duraline is the world’s premier maintenance-free covered fire hose. Duraline has been used by municipal and industrial fire services around the world for over 5 decades. Featuring outstanding performance, with low maintenance and exceptional storage life, Duraline offers the best value for money.
Specially formulated high grade synthetic rubber is extruded through a polyamide woven jacket to give a non-kinking construction and excellent rubber to textile adhesion. Duraline is manufactured in compliance with BS EN ISO 9001 quality management systems. It is Kitemarked to BS 6391 Type 3 and UL approved.
An important feature of Duraline is its ability to be deployed in the Cleveland Coil configuration, which enables firefighters to move the hose from its stowed position in a standard vehicle hose locker and to carry it quickly and easily into high rise buildings, where it can be charged rapidly with water, ready for immediate fire fighting. The hose assumes rapidly a smoothly coiled shape with no kinking once charged and therefore is able to provide a full water flow for fire fighting.
Duraline also complies fully with the UK Royal Navy requirement for non-kinking in restricted gangways onboard ship.
