In this on-demand webinar, UL’s subject matter experts, Ronald Whelan, senior project engineer, and Suresh Shanmugam, engineering manager, provide participants with a high-level overview of UL 19, the Standard for Lined Fire Hose and Hose Assemblies. We will discuss different types of hoses outlined in UL 19 that includes single-jacketed, multiple-jacketed and covered hoses judged equivalent to multiple-jacketed hose, and we’ll examine the intended use of these types of hoses by the end-user.

Further topics include, but are not limited to, hose construction and marking as it pertains to UL 19, as well as a look at the different hose pressure ratings and how this affects the certification assigned to the hose. We will also briefly review the various types of tests that are conducted on fire hoses and outline which tests are performed at UL and which tests are conducted at the manufacturing location.

Lastly, we will explore the future of fire hose as driven by the introduction of new materials by manufacturers and the changing needs of the fire service.
