FIRE HOSE REEL
Fire hose reels are located to provide a reasonably accessible and controlled supply of water to combat a potential fire risk. The length of a fully extended fire hose is 36 meters with a diameter of 19mm (outside diameter). These appliances are designed to deliver, as a minimum, 0.33L of water per second. A control nozzle attached to the end of the hose enables the operator to control the direction and flow of water to the fire. All fire hose reels come with a unique ball valve shut-off device, a plastic or solid brass hose reel nozzle and mounting bracket.
Hose Reel Maintenance and Inspection
All hose reels should be inspected and particular attention made to ensure there are no leaks and the drum rotates freely on its spindle.
Run out hose fully, under pressure and check for crack, splits, leaks or other damage.
Carry out a flow and pressure test.
Check the drum rotates freely on its spindle and for swinging hose reels that it swings through 180° easily.
Inspect any nozzles and isolation valves and check they work correctly, are easy to operate and that they are left in the correct orientation.
Check any guide is fixed securely and it works correctly.
