8T Hose

Lightweight Polyester Double Jacket Hose

Versatility meets rugged dependability: 8T is the double jacket municipal-grade fire hose that incorporates a lightweight polyurethane liner for added strength, but with no added bulk to weigh you down. It meets all the requirements of NFPA 1961 Standard, and with optional Dura-Cote™ protective treatment, it is an exceptional value with industry-leading abrasion and puncture resistance, and an extended service life.

 

  • Durable. High-quality, double jacket, municipal fire hose made from 100% high tensile strength ring-spun polyester yarn along with a lining of thermoplastic polyurethane for reduced weight while remaining kink resistant.
  • Added Reinforcement. Optional Dura-Cote™ protective treatment extends the life of the hose, greatly increases abrasion, heat, flame and petrochemical resistance while virtually eliminating water pick- up. When treated, 8T is protected from mildew and no drying is required.
  • Flexible. Remains flexible to temperatures as low as -40°F (-40°C) and is designed to totally eliminate deterioration by ozone.
  • Versatile. Polyurethane lining material meets NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for drinking water and can be used as a hydrant or water main bypass in an emergency situation.
  • Certified. Manufactured in accordance with NFPA 1961 Standard, latest edition within our ISO-9001 certified quality assurance system.
