The perfect solution for both, the storage and use of a firehose pack
The RAP-EX Hose Pack Bag was adapted to the standardized hose carrying basket in length and width. This way, an existing carrying basket can be replaced by the RAP-EX Hose Bag without any modification. Since the bag is slimmer than a carrying basket, a mobile smoke barrier can be stored right next to it. From now on, unsafely stored hose packs in your team quarters are a thing of the past.
During operations, the 50 mm wide carrying strap allows for safe and comfortable carrying over the shoulder until you reach the border of the hazard zone. Thanks to the massive two-way zipper, the bag gives way quickly to your hose pack, securely fixed with the RAP-FIX Hose Pack Straps.
Possible tactics for interior operations with the RAP-EX Firehose Bag:
The attack team lays the hose to the area of fire with a carrying basket. From there, you go on with a firehose pack (one 30m hose) is used. By using only one carrying basket and not two, you can save a total weight of 11 kg.
Open the zipper, lay out the firehose pack, connect to the water pipes, open the RAP-FIX Firehose Straps.
Charge the hose!
If the hose is prepared in a coil instead of a flat load, it can be expanded right in front of the area of fire – not much space needed. The emerging spiral is the perfect stand-by hose.
Hose can be pulled comfortably:
The expanded spiral can be leaned against the wall next to the area of fire in order to safe space. Now, the hose can be pulled easily.
Advantages of one 30m hose compared to two 15m hoses:
The hose coupling between the shorter hoses is prone to get stuck at corners and doors when being pulled. When one 30m hose is being used, this problem does not exist. Due to the little hose diameter, one can save a total of 23 kg in hose weight, which is useful when pulling the hose. This relieves an attack team enormously to better concentrate on putting out the fire.
