When people go through fire for others without batting an eye, they deserve respect.
When firefighters battle flames and fearlessly tackle disasters, they have to have absolute faith. Faith in themselves, their team and their equipment – so that every individual can be protected.
If there’s a firefighter’s heart and soul in every fiber of a hose, then it’s a hose from Gollmer & Hummel.
Quality that’s tested to within an inch of its life is our way of paying respect to everyday heroes – for the past 150 years.
What makes GH hoses different?
|Stability under pressure|
To ensure the hose follows every attack movement, allows an unobstructed flow of extinguishing agent and there are no extreme point loads at kinks, all threads come together in our GH 4Z weave system.
This guarantees a tight bending radius. What’s more, the weft thread is perfectly concealed and protected from abrasion. The hose remains supple at performance levels L2 and L3.
We weave so that your hose is at your side every step of the way!
Standard hoses vulcanized in the conventional way often form a stubborn elliptical shape when lying flat. Sound familiar?
It does to us – and we know what to do about it. Our special GH flatline vulcanization endows your hose with the very best properties.
The hose is rolled out to its full length and inflated with steam at a certain temperature and over a certain duration. The result is a hose that is flat and supple when you use it. And fits back in its hose basket without a fuss.
We do this because firefighters don’t need any hose drama on the job!
With practical tips and valuable info for everyday heroes.
