Lay Flat Hose

What is Lay Flat Hose?

Lay Flat hose is flexible and designed for transferring liquids under pressure. Most people will be very familiar with what it looks like. Lay flat hose is probably the most commonly seen type of hose adopted by fire brigades for the delivery of water from the pump to the seat of the fire. It is also used more widely in applications such as irrigation, construction, and mining. It is manufactured to strict British Standards (BS) and DIN standards. Lay flat hose is only used for the delivery of fluid and not for any suction applications, as the hose has no ridged reinforcement that would enable it to retain its shape under suction.

Due to its many advantages over traditional Rubber and PVC hoses, Lay Flat hose can now be found throughout the industry for a large variety of delivery applications. This style is now manufactured by a great number of companies offering a wide range of pressure ratings, sizes and construction styles. Lay Flat hose is a cost-effective solution, which is both durable and resistant to abrasion.
