Lay Flat Hoses by Hose Online
A layflat hose is a unique type of hose as it literally stays flat when empty in stark contrast to other types which are generally cylindrical in shape. This distinctive feature makes it less bulky and relatively easy to store. They are also among lightest hoses in the market, making them easy to move around and needs to actual installation.
There are several categories of layflat hoses depending on their application, composition and features. In terms of application, layflat hoses are just as versatile and functional as they come. Their use spans various industries such as agriculture, construction, quarry, mining, fire control, to name a few. This type of hose is perfect for any industry as it is unobtrusive; it only lays flat when idle but it can come to life even with outlet water pressure and delivers fluids to wherever it is needed.
Layflat hoses can be manufactured from various types of materials including polyvinyl chloride, polyester filament, rubber, and different types of high-grade polymers. The hose is typically reinforced by polyester yarn so it can withstand higher working pressure. Both the interior and exterior surfaces are lined with specialized materials; for instance the exterior may be rubber extruded so the hose can endure wear and tear as well as chemical degradation.
Features wise, layflat hoses have a long list to boot. They are generally, non-toxic, odourless, abrasion resistant, acid and alkali resistant, kink/wrinkle resistant, stretch resistant, weather and ozone resistant and they are also environment friendly. These hoses are absolutely built to last and can stand up to the toughest Australian conditions!
