A heavy weight and durable hose designed for normal day to day wear and tear.
Twill and plain weaves are two common types of weaves used in fire
hose jackets. Plain weaving is the simplest method, in which warp and
weft threads alternate over and under each other at 90 degrees, forming a
In twill weaves, a "weft thread is passed over one or more warp
threads and then under two or more warp threads and so on, with a ‘step’
or offset between rows to create the characteristic diagonal pattern."
This makes fabrics closer in texture, heavier, and stronger than plain
weaves do. The major advantages of twill fabric are that it is durable
and wears well, and resists soiling. In addition, the reduced number of
interlacing’s in twill fabric allows the yarns a greater range of motion
and freer movement. A reverse twill weave of the inner jacket also
promotes a smooth waterway.
