NORTH AMERICAN POLY-TUFF 1200 FIRE HOSE


 



Product Code: NAF-POLYTUFF1200
(800) 615-6789

Description Technical Specs
 
EPDM Rubber Lining / Polyester Jacket
Poly-Tuff 1200 is a special heavy duty, high pressure 2-1/2" double jacket fire hose designed to supply water to standpipe and sprinkler systems in high rise buildings. The all polyester construction incorporates heavy gauge, higher tensile strength Poly-Cord™ spun polyester warp yarns, combined with heavy denier, high tenacity filament polyester filler yarns in order to achieve the extreme pressure capability required for this application. A unique Hose Lok™ coupling bonding system permanently bonds the special expansion ring aluminum coupling to the heavy duty hose construction, while exceeding the minimum burst pressure requirement. Unique Ultra-Shield™ high-performance polyurethane coating seals each and every fiber in the bundle, and the EPDM rubber lining utilizes the Dura-Bond™ vulcanization adhesion system.
Applications - High Pressure Supply to High Rise Standpipe and Sprinkler Systems, and Attack
Available in 50 foot lengths only

Features
  • Special heavy duty, high pressure 2-1/2" double jacket construction designed to supply water to standpipe and sprinkler systems in high rise buildings.
  • Achieves 600 psi annual service test pressure / 1200 psi acceptance pressure / 1800 psi minimum burst pressure ratios required by the NFPA 1961 Fire Hose Standard.
  • Designed especially for the unique fire fighting challenges encountered in delivering water to the top of the 1,149 foot tall “Stratosphere Tower” in Las Vegas, with a gravity head of 498 pounds per square inch.
  • This all polyester construction incorporates heavy gauge, higher tensile strength Poly-Cord™ spun polyester warp yarns, combined with heavy denier, high tenacity filament polyester filler yarns in order to achieve the extreme pressure capability required for this application.
  • A unique Hose Lok™ coupling bonding system permanently bonds the special expansion ring aluminum coupling to the heavy duty hose construction, while exceeding the minimum burst pressure requirement.
  • Unique Ultra-Shield™ high-performance polyurethane coating seals each and every fiber in the bundle, further improving abrasion resistance, reducing moisture and chemical absorption, and providing vivid color-coded identification. The Ultra-Shield™ coating is included at no additional charge.
  • The EPDM rubber lining is unaffected by Ozone deterioration and is one component in the Friction Fighter System™, creating an extremely smooth waterway surface, thereby reducing friction loss and significantly improving nozzle performance.
  • The Dura-Bond™ vulcanized adhesion system, which creates both a mechanical and chemical bond between the EPDM lining and the inner jacket, eliminates the possibility of delamination as is experienced with competitive adhesive bonded rubber lined constructions.
