The Type 187 forestry hose is a lightweight, all-synthetic fire hose with a polyurethane lining inside a polyester jacket designed to meet the USDA Forest Service Specification 5100-187 for “Synthetic Lined” fire hose. Available in two styles – 7F and 8F. Style 7F is ideal for traditional Type 1 specifications while 8F meets the new Type II specification and is protected from mildew and no drying is required. Type 187 8F is also available with the exclusive Dura-Cote™ treatment, greatly increasing abrasion, heat and flame resistance while virtually eliminating water pickup.
Both hose styles are available in 50′ or 100′ feet lengths and include your choice of aluminium rocker lug or ¼ turn forestry couplings. Type 187 forestry hose meets or exceeds the low weight requirements of each specification.
