RAPIER is a popular choice for 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.
The interior lining and exterior coating on the ﬁre hose jacket is made from PVC nitrite. This extruded cover is highly chemical and abrasion resistant .
In addition to the practical protection afforded by the polymer cover, the lay flat hose is protected from being stained by oils and dirt.
The RAPIER hose has the Australian Defense Force DEF 5195A Standard of approval.
