Hozelock launches unmissable hose

A range of bright orange fluorescent heavy-duty hose products, this is specifically designed to reduce trip hazards on building sites. The fluorescent Hozelock Maxi Hi-Vis hose stands out brightly on the floor of a construction site, whether in full sun or poor light, so making it less likely that workmen or site visitors will trip over it.

The 4- layer braided Maxi Hi-Vis hose has a 9 bar working pressure specification while burst pressure is rated at 27 bar. Bearing clear graphics to identify it as a water-carrying hose, its thick yet flexible outer PVC layer is highly resistant to scuffs and abrasions – even if repeatedly run over by heavy plant – and the hose remains fully flexible in temperatures ranging from -15 to +60ºC.

It comes in three forms: a standalone 3/4in 25m hose with fittings and adapters to fit to standard half-inch taps and attachments; a versatile hose reel including 25m of 1/2in hose; and a heavy duty metal hose cart with 50m of 1/2in hose.

A free-standing reel which can also be wall mounted, the Maxi Hi-Vis Hose Reel (£41.66) has a tubular alloy frame, a convenient winding handle and comes with 25m of 1/2in fluorescent hose, a nozzle, tap and hose connectors and all necessary wall fixings.

The third option is the Maxi Hi-Vis Metal Hose Cart (£83.33) with ribbed wheels for easy manoeuvrability over uneven surfaces. Made from heavy gauge steel tubing and electro-plated for lifelong corrosion resistance, this tough cart has a comfortable 900mm high towing handle and a parking stand which keeps the cart stable when the hose is pulled out. It comes pre-assembled with 50m of 1/2in fluorescent hose and an accessory pack comprising a nozzle, tap fittings and hose connectors.
