Product overview

Flat hoses - reliable in an emergency
when every move has to be just right

Gollmer & Hummel score highly in flexibility and durability, which is especially vital for military operations and disaster control. Because at the deployment sites, troops can’t usually rely on an intact infrastructure for their supplies.


With disaster control, this is particularly the case for supplies of water or drinking water. Where the military is concerned, the main focus is on supplying fuel and refueling.


Once the flexible hose system is in operation, it must ensure a supply, reliably and without needing care or maintenance. Even in the unlikeliest environment.


The DNA of reliable hoses is our passion!

Water transport & drinking water supply

Made for extreme situations

Hoses for transporting fuel for the military have outstanding abrasion resistance. They can withstand oil, gasoline, various chemicals, heat, UV rays, ozone, and even cuts.


The hose body features strands for electrostatic discharge, and enables the couplings to connect electrically when transferring fuel. Always quickly to hand and rolled up small in a trice.


This also applies to our GH drinking water transport specialists. You can simply rely on them – without a doubt!


Water is the dominant topic in disaster control: pumping quantities of water, supplying people with clean drinking water. Speed is of the essence for both helpers and materials, to stop extreme situations from escalating. Drinking water mustn’t be contaminated during transport.


GH hoses for supplying drinking water or drainage can cover long distances that are hazardous to hoses: sharp stones, rough scree, merciless heat and the vagaries of the weather are lying in wait.


We know this, and design GH water transport hoses so that water can be supplied and drained through them with absolute reliability.

Pliable & hard-wearing

During the production process, the jacket lining is centered in special PU and forms the hard-wearing yet pliable backbone of the finished hose.

For PU hoses, GH normalization takes place after production for extra flexibility – for practicality during use and winding up.


A hose that’s used to transport fuel or for refueling must be conductive, so that the electrostatic charge doesn’t discharge with a spark. We know this, and equip our hoses with a metal strand.

Hard skin - smooth core

Compared to temporary rigid drinking water pipes, GH drinking water hoses are flexible and pliable despite their resistance to mechanical and weather influences. Unlike pipelines made of individual sections, the use of drinking water hoses does not lead to corrosion and, as a result, to contamination and leaks. What makes a safe drinking water hose? Where can flat hoses be used effectively for drinking water supply?
