Hi-Power™

High Rise Fire Hose

High-rise firefighting has unique tactical and equipment requirements. While weight is important, functionality and ease of use are far more important. Reliable hose performance is crucial in high-rise environments, and Hi-Power™ delivers. Engineered by BullDog, Hi-Power™ is an ultra-lightweight, maneuverable, nitrile-rubber hose designed specifically for fighting fires in high-rise buildings. The lightweight, through-the-weave construction is heat and puncture resistant, kink resistant and has low friction loss. The rubber cover prevents water from penetrating the reinforcement thus minimizing the weight of the hose when in service. The standard color for Hi-Power™ is blue.

Features
  • Improved friction loss over the conventional jacketed hose
  • Outstanding kink resistance
  • The design is heavy duty, one piece, all synthetic and extruded through the weave for lightweight handling and enhanced maneuverability
  • Durable construction provides the ultimate in cut, puncture and abrasion resistance
  • Best in class adhesion provides enhanced hose performance and increased hose life
  • The hose is protected from catastrophic bursts, even with a 1/2” diameter hole through both the jacket and liner
  • Nitrile-rubber cover eliminates additional weight issues caused by water pick up during use and greatly increases abrasion resistance, providing a long service life
  • Chemical-resistant, the nitrile-rubber cover protects from exposure to water and contamination by most chemical substances, hydrocarbons, oils, and grease
  • Exceptional heat resistance as exhibited in the BS 6391 Hot Cube Test
  • Hi-Power™ is manufactured to meet or exceed NFPA 61 standard
