It is an essential part of firefighting equipment. A fire hose reel is installed in the building that allows the occupants of the building to combat the fire risk. A Fire Hose Reel is a cylindrical spindle that is made from plastic, metal, or fiberglass. A hose reel brings water or foam for extinguishing the fire. A fire hose provides an immediate supply of pressurized water or other extinguishing agent that helps in combating the fire quickly. The fire hose reel is the best quick response option to combat fire in its initial stage. Users can also permanently connect it to the main water supply of the building. On the other side, a hose reel can be portable by attaching it to other firefighting devices such as fire hydrant or fire engine.
The fire hose reel is suitable for the fire caused by the burning of paper, wood, plastic, and textile. But we cannot use fire hose on chemical and electrical fires because water is a conductor of electricity and using water can add fuel to the fire.
