Hand Monitors are chosen for their simplicity and cost effectiveness. Lever operated, hand control monitors are ideal for protecting risks where the monitor angle and trajectory can be adjusted and locked before use. Once in operation, manoeuvring the steering arm (handle) can be hard – as the reaction forces created by the jet, particularly at operating pressures over 7 bar can make the load on the handle difficult for a single operator to manage. For this reason a counter weight is often fitted to manual monitors to help balance the load of the reaction forces, particularly when a foam cannon is fitted.
Hand monitors offered by Angus Fire are:
Flow rates and sizes can be found in the individual datasheets along with the options on jet spray nozzles and foam cannons.
