Firefighting hose and couplings
Proudly represented by Chubb in Australia, Angus Fire is the world’s largest manufacturer of layflat extruded fire hose, supplying over 35 million metres worldwide.
By continuous rubber specification development and ‘through the weave’ manufacturing, Angus Fire hose products provide high durability and performance.
The range includes Duraline, Firechief and Target fire hose in various colours and sizes.
Fire hose is perhaps the most important item of equipment carried on a fire appliance. It is the fire fighter’s lifeline. If it fails lives could be in danger.
Duraline is a world leading maintenance-free (no drying required) extruded fire hose. Duraline has a high quality specification and performance, which is why over 35 million metres have been supplied to fire services worldwide. The secret lies in the Duraline's unique construction, which makes it highly resistant to kinking, even at low pressures. This, plus the benefits of low-pressure loss and the ability to deliver more water over longer distances makes Duraline a leading choice amongst professional firefighters around the world. Available in a range of sizes from 25mm to 89mm.

Firechief is the result of considerable research and development designed to produce fire hose that offers all the performance advantages of extruded hose with exceptional lightness usually found with textile hose. The lightweight construction gives a tightly formed coil that occupies less space than bulky ordinary hose. Firechief's thick PVC/Nitrile covering is heat resistant and has excellent abrasion resistance and is easy to handle at temperatures ranging from -15oC up to 50oC. The distinctive orange colour gives it clear visibility in dark or smoky conditions.
Firechief fire hose is a professional grade extruded hose with superb kink, abrasion and chemical resistance. A key advantage is that it does not require drying. Firechief is used extensively in the mining, marine, petrochemical industries and by fire brigades and defence organisations.
With outstanding performance, strong yet lightweight, the Angus Target covered hose has superior heat and wear characteristics due to its all-in-one construction. The construction means that Angus Target can be wiped down after use and returned to storage without the need for drying. Angus Target Hose has been certified to AS2792:1992 in both 38mm and 64mm diameters.
SuperCobra is an "H" class hose which remains light and flexible when wet or dry due to the use of synthetic yarns. PVA and polyester yarns do not swell in contact with water and therefore there is no loss of flexibility when the hose is wet. PVA is also one of the most abrasion resistant synthetic yarns making it ideal for use in a fire hose. SuperCobra is designed for use by fire brigades operating under rigorous and demanding conditions. Typical uses are urban firefighting, mining, marine and petrochemical sites.
Angus Fire's revolutionary large diameter hose Hi-Vol is what the fire service has been waiting for. Available in diameters up to 305mm Hi-Vol eliminates the logistical nightmare of "spaghetti" on the fire-ground. It also enables water to be moved over long distances with minimal friction loss, using fewer pumps in relay than conventional hose. The amount of water moved by 8 64mm lengths of Duraline can now be moved by a single 125mm length of Hi-Vol. It is also being used for bridging municipal water mains damaged by earthquakes.
