Fire hose reels are located to provide a reasonably accessible and controlled supply of water to combat a potential fire risk. The length of a fully extended fire hose is between 18 and 36 meters with a diameter of 13 or 19mm internal diameter. These appliances are designed to deliver, at a minimum, 0.33 litres of water per second. A control nozzle attached to the end of the hose enables the operator to control the direction and flow of water to the fire. All fire hose reels come with a unique ball or gate valve shut off device, a plastic or solid brass hose reel nozzle, and mounting bracket.
