The Lightweight Firehose

Guardman is our number one firehose, and has set the standard globally for firehoses since it’s origin in the 1960’s. It was originally known as Armtex, and it’s categorized as a type 3 firehose according to the British Standard, which means it has an external elastomeric coating.

Made to Last

The unique hose construction by the circular weave, covered and lined with the nitrile/PVC rubber gives at least 5 times longer lifetime compared to traditional textile hoses. Guardman was developed to meet the need for a fire hose that could withstand damages caused by abrasion, wear and tear, while also delivering a flexible and high-quality solution in demanding situations.
