Well done QLFA!

After four fantastic years of research and development, QLFA is proud to announce we won a Good Design award for our category, we also won the Parton's Prize for excellence in innovation and secured a position in The Powerhouse Museum's Design Exhibition.

From the Good Design Judges:

“Any product that aims to save lives should be commended. This is an igneous design solution that has significant market potential let alone the potential to save precious lives in fire fighting situations,” the Judges commented.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

The idea came to Mr Jacobs, a 31-year-old professional fireman and the managing director of Quick Lay, when he was watching a YouTube video of American firefighters using a coiled flat hose. This hose got water from the hydrant to a fire faster, but the hose could drop into a disastrous ''mess of tangles''.
