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 by civil defence organisations for bridging municipal water mains damaged by earthquakes.
Manufactured to the same demanding standards as Duraline fire hose, Duraline Hi-Vol offers an efficient means of rapidly delivering critical water supplies in emergencies when water resources are limited or even non-existent.
A single 125mm diameter length of Duraline Hi-Vol can move as much water as eight lengths of standard 64mm fire hose. The unique technology behind Duraline Hi-Vol ensures minimum pressure drop and maximum robustness.
Exceptional Storage Life
Large diameter hose spends most of its life in storage. The specially formulated rubber blend in Duraline Hi-Vol ensures maximum storage life whatever the storage or operational conditions.
Simple Deployment and Retrieval
A wide range of deployment and retrieval systems have been designed to support Duraline Hi-Vol and simplify its use. These ensure compliance with manual handling regulations and can be custom-engineered to meet the requirements of individual users.
Duraline Hi-Vol can be wiped down after an incident and returned to storage without drying. Simple repair techniques are available to ensure damaged hose can be quickly and safely returned to service.
