September 2020 has been the worst fire season on record. Firefighters from other countries came to the west coast to land a hand in this battle where fire and time are the worst enemies. Fighting forest fires means the people work long hours in very hostile environment. The water tanks are not always near the fire and hoses must then be pulled over several meters. Firefighters must trust that all their equipment will meet the highest standards and help them get through the situation. Fortunately, they were able to count on Niedner’s hosing solutions to do so.
Innovative and field proven
Since 1895, Niedner has been introducing new hosing solutions in the market, thus establishing itself as the longest premium hose manufacturer in North America. Niedner revolutionized the fire industry by creating lighter, more versatile fire hoses and lay flat hoses to overcome the challenges firefighters face.
What makes firefighters around the globe trust Niedner’s solutions is first and foremost the high quality of the products. The woven-jacketed hoses are available with rubber lining for increased durability, as well as polyurethane lined fire hoses that are lightweight and easy to maneuver. The hoses have been engineered to meet the most demanding applications, including heat and abrasion resistant fire hoses and products that can endure exposure to chemicals, oils, and saltwater.
“We strive to give our members quality equipment to use at all times. We’ve found over the years that small details make huge differences. Our equipment committee is always asking the question “Is something better out there?” In 2009, we bought some Niedner’s hoses. Theses hoses are still in service today. They are durable, pack tightly in hose beds and are lightweight, which lessens fatigue on members. With a comparable friction loss rate to much other hose in the industry, our committee has yet to find a reason to leave Niedner. It’s the best supply hose I’ve ever seen or used.” Casey Snyder, Assistant Chief, Pumpkin Center Volunteer Fire Department
Every situation has its own challenges and Niedner’s flexible and innovative approach to conceiving and producing hoses allows them to provide firefighters with high tech and high-quality products that meet their exact needs. Feedback from firefighters over the years has pushed Niedner to refine their hosing solutions. This back and forth between innovation and field-testing guaranties that firefighters can do their job knowing their hoses will perform in the worst possible conditions.
In these times of uncertainty and multi-faceted challenges, reliability is key. Now more than ever, Niedner is committed in pursuing its mission established 125 years ago: provide high quality, innovative and field proven hosing solutions to firefighters and workers of various industries all over the world.
