The hose complies with BS 6391 Type 3 and is available in two lengths - 18 metres and 23 metres. The former is available with a 45mm diameter, while the latter comes with either a 45mm or 64mm diameter.

Reinforced with a ribbed polyester jacket and a nitrile-blended rubber inner lining, these are bonded together to provide better performance in abrasion resistance, preventing damage even in the most demanding environments. While primarily designed for firefighting use, this multipurpose hose is also commonly used on refineries and construction sites, in agriculture and irrigation, general industrial use, and for all wash-down applications.

Manufactured by Vigil Products, the Type 3 layflat fire hose is flexible, kink-resistant, and easy to clean, with contact resistance to oil, fuel, and chemicals. It has a working pressure of 15 bar and a burst pressure of 45 bar.
