The hybrid PVC/rubber hoses are designed to improve safety by increasing awareness and visibility

Coxreels recently expanded its safety line with new high-visibility hose reels.

“Power up your safety with high-visibility hose by Coxreels,” the company said in a news release. “When not in use, your hose and cable is safely retracted on your Coxreels reel, but when in use the hose can become a hazard.

“With the addition of high-visibility hose to your hose reel, awareness and visibility are increased to create the safest environment possible.”

Featured on P-, SH-, and T-series products, Coxreels’ high-visibility hose is hybrid bright yellow hose with a white glossy stripe available in 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. Hybrid hoses (PVC plus rubber blend) offer similar performance to rubber with the weight of PVC, combining positive features of both hose types. They have increased hose flexibility and better low-temperature behavior, while maintaining strength and toughness, Coxreels said.

With enhanced kink resistance and reduced coil memory, the hoses ay flat, reducing the potential for a tripping hazard. Hybrid hoses also feature a less sticky jacket surface than PVC for better stacking performance and an improved non-marring quality. With a working pressure of 300 psi, this hose is designed for applications involving air and water.
