Q. What is the difference between rack hose and reel hose?
A. Typically this would refer to a single polyester woven jacketed hose with a polyurethane liner. Most commonly, the hose is placed in a semi automatic Pin Rack. The very same hose, rather than folded, may be coiled for use on a Hose Reel. It is dependent on how the hose will be deployed.
Q. Can reel hose be stored on something besides a reel?
A. Yes. Although when the terms rack hose and reel hose are used, it most often refers to 1-1/2” and 2-1/2” polyurethane lined, single jacket hose. All lay-flat hose, including single jacket fire hose, double jacket fire hose and rubber covered lay flat fire hose, is designed for storage and deployment from a reel system. In addition, all lay flat hoses can be stored in a wide variety of Hose Storage products depending on your requirements.
