Angus Fire supplies a wide range of fire hose products for a variety of applications. Fire hoses fall into two distinct types based upon the manufacturing processes. Conventional fire hoses comprise a circular woven, textile jacket lined with synthetic rubber. Covered fire hoses take a circular woven jacket and extrude rubber through the jacket to form both a lining and a cover. Extruded hose offers a more robust and lower maintenance solution to moving fire fighting water. They are ideal for heavy duty applications which might leave a conventional hose quickly damaged or beyond repair. Angus Fire is the world's leading manufacturer of extruded fire hose with such renowned brands as Duraline, Firechief, Coverlite and Hi Vol. For textile hose ask about Super Cobra, Firefighter 750 and Python.

Super Cobra 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. Super Cobra is designed for use by fire brigades operating under rigorous and demanding conditions. Typical uses are urban fire fighting, mining, marine and petrochemical sites.
