What is involved in servicing a fire hose reel

During the annual Fire Hose Reel test, we conduct a Flow and Pressure test. The results recorded on the service label attached to the reel. In addition, a visual inspection of the hose and all the fittings is undertaken.

Every 5 years, the hose is pressure tested to ensure the integrity of the unit should it be used in an emergency situation. We carry the required test equipment which allows us to pressurize each hose to its maximum working pressure (Maximum working pressure 12 bar, Test pressure 18 bar Typical).

If any failures are discovered, Fire Hose Reels Direct Service vehicles carry a good supply of spares from most manufacturers, so a speedy resolution is often found.

Fire Hose Reels Direct Ltd also provide certification per hose reel.
