The fire hose assembly supplied under this specification
shall be constructed with superior quality materials.
NFPA 1961 standards shall be observed in production
of the assembly, in order to ensure its quality and durability.
Hose furnished under these specifications
will have a potential service life warranty of not less than
five years; barring mistreatment that would render it
unfit for service. Upon delivery, the hose shall be free from
defects in workmanship and materials. Any defective hose
will be replaced at no charge whatsoever.
The jackets will be woven evenly and be free of defects,
including knots, lumps, or unsightly disfigurations that
could jeopardize the integrity of the hose assembly. The
warp yarn shall consist of staple polyester yarn. The use of
filament or entangled yarn is expressly forbidden due to
the lack of inherent abrasion resistance. The filler yarns

sake of weight are not acceptable.
The backing shall be of adequate thickness to
create a smooth waterway but not greater than .020. The
