From fire fighters around the world through to Emergency Response Teams in prisons, on mine sites or aboard cruise ships- the task of lay-flat fire hose deployment is universally inconsistent and generally restrictive in its application.

Traditionally, to avoid kinks and tangles, fire hose deployment requires long open spaces. Many on-duty injuries occur when fire fighters attempt to un-kink a semi-charged hose. Further, it’s when a hose is kinked that it’s more likely to burst, causing additional water damage – as the fire intensifies.

Then when it's charged, the long lengths of hose filled with water are heavy when dragged towards the fire.

The QuickLay Packs provide the first holestic hose management solution by essentially by fulfilling the two requirements common to every fire emergency. Firstly, the Lay Pack stretches a length of hose between the water supply and the fire containment point. Where a second hose, stowed in the Attack Pack can be deployed into a neat coil and easily advanced.

In addition to the rapid deployment of the Attack Pack, the nature of the coiled hose introduces fire fighters to greater deployment flexibility including confined space deployment in places like high-rise fire stairs, a terrace style court yard, a unit block balcony or the narrow gangway of a cruise or cargo ship.

The innovative hose lay packs allow multilingual and multi-skilled operators to easily deploy and advance a charged fire hose 90% quicker and 99% more reliably.
