Rapier is a popular choice with both fire brigades and industrial plant fire protection. It is a high pressure Type 3 fire hose, which is manufactured with an extruded synthetic rubber cover. This extruded cover protects the hose against abrasion and chemical damage. This woven fire hose is made from polyester with a synthetic rubber lining and cover. The interior lining and exterior coating on the fire hose jacket is made from PVC nitrile. This extruded cover is highly chemical and abrasion resistant. In addition to the practical protection afforded by the polymer cover, the layflat hose is protected from being stained by oils and dirt.

The protective cover comes in a variety of colours ideal for identification purposes. Red hose may signify the fire hose, while a blue hose can be for wash-down. Customers sometimes like to blend their hose colour according to the colour scheme of the plant, or to reflect their corporate colours. The Rapier is usually supplied in 30m lengths but longer lengths, up to 200m, can be made. The Rapier is easy to store and is also UV stabilised so it stands up well to prolonged outdoor use. All Crusader Hose is manufactured in our ISO 9001 quality accredited factory and comes with a standard 12 month warranty.
