Fire Hose Reel

A fire hose reel is a cylindrical spindle made of metal and is used for the storing of a fire hose. The typical length of a fire hose reel is 36m however longer lengths are available. A fire hose reel is used as a first attack apparatus by first responders. A hose reel is great for Class A fires including paper, wood, textiles, most plastics and rubber.
