Fire hose reels play an important part in a firefighter’s job. While many people look to firefights as a source of inspiration and heroes, as they should be viewed, few people fully know what goes into one of their most used tools, the fire hose reel. The following will be an in-depth view of the tool that allows firefighters to quickly and effectively fight fires.
For starters, the basic functionality of a fire hose reel is the same as an everyday hose reel, storing a hose in this case storing a fire hose. Except for these reels are stored on the truck and are inspected both monthly and annually to ensure they are up to quality standards. They can either be mechanically or manually wound or unwound. And these reels are designed to control a large amount of water to effectively fight large fires. The typical fire hose can range from 18 to 36 meters and have a diameter from 13 to 19mm. Fire hose reels need to be able to withstand the weight of both the hose and the hose filled with water.
Fire hose reels come in three different styles, grounding, large diameter and booster reels. Not only are they found on trucks, but they can also be found mounted onto buildings. Booster reels are designed to hold booster hoses which maintain water flow while still on the hose reel. Large diameter hoses are commonly used for supply lines and need their accompanying large diameter hose reels.
