Scope

Hose manufactured to this specification shall be of superior quality and workmanship. The hose shall withstand the rough usage of front line fire fighting. Hose specified,shall meet NFPA 1961 standards. For North American customers, due to lack of verification of adherence to NFPA 1961 standards, import hose shall not be accepted. Hose furnished under these specifications will have a potential service life and warranty of 5 years, barring mistreatment that would render it unfit for service. Upon delivery the hose shall be free from defects and materials. Any defective hose will be replaced at no charge.

Jacket Construction

Double jacket hose manufactured to this specification shall be tightly woven with filament polyester yarn in the filler and ring spun polyester yarn in the warp of both the inside and outside jackets. Inside jackets manufactured from 100% filament polyester would not meet Key-Lite minimum standards. The hose shall be resistant to most chemicals and petrol products, and resist deterioration due to exposure to UV-rays and ozone. It shall not be affected by rot or mildew. The inside and outside jackets shall be manufactured with a minimum pick count of 9.5 picks per inch for increased strength and abrasion resistance. The inside jacket shall be manufactured using a reverse twill process to reduce friction loss. The inside jacket shall be manufactured on a circular loom in a clockwise direction and the outside jacket in a counter-clockwise direction. The hose must be of sufficient body and weight to meet the demands of heavy-duty fire fighting usage.

Abrasion Impregnation

Hose assemblies shall be available with the special “Key-Lok" polyurethane based polymer impregnation for added abrasion resistance and ease in identification. Impregnated hose shall meet the requirements of MIL-H-24606B for abrasion resistance. NFPA colors may be specified by the end-user. A double dip process for twice the abrasion resistance is available upon request.

Lining

The lining shall be a single-ply extruded tube of synthetic polyurethane to resist ozone. The polyurethane tube shall adhere to the jacket to prevent delamination. The finished product will meet and exceed all potable water MIL-H-24606B & NSF-61 standards for potable water use hose. The use of the polyurethane lined fire hose is designed to increase packing ability and reduce weight for high rise fire fighting applications where light weight fire hose is desired.

Performance:

The minimum burst test pressure, when tested in accordance to NFPA 1961, on all Key-Lite diameters up to 3" shall be 1200 PSI/82 Bar. Minimum burst test requirements for the 4" diameter shall be 900 PSI/62 Bar. Service test pressures stenciled on the hose shall be in accordance with current minimum requirements of NFPA 1962. A valid USA/ULC Underwriters 800 PSI/55 Bar listing shall be in force. Lengths available up to 100 feet.

Standards:

Fire hose manufactured to this specification shall meet and exceed all performance requirements of NFPA 1961, Underwriter’s Laboratories and MIL-H-24606 standards.

** Customers are advised special diameters or construction characteristics may
be produced by special request. For more information please contact your JGB Sales Representative.
