Today, the most commonly used devices to protect homes from wildfires are irrigation sprinklers.They are expensive and take a long time to deploy.
The SprayHose is much lower in cost and deploys more quickly.
Unlike sprinklers, the SprayHose has no moving parts which can be damaged during deployment.
The spray nozzle can send water straight up.
Sprinklers cannot do that.
BECAUSE SPRINKLER SPRAY IS ALWAYS MOVING, IT CAN LET EMBERS PASS BY.
THE SPRAY NOZZLES PRESENT A CONTINUOUS WALL OF WATER TO STOP EMBERS.
The photo above shows the HFX hose from All American Hose.
A propane torch burns at over 3000 degrees F.
After 1 minute of flame exposure the top layer of the spray nozzle was badly burned.. The right side of the burned section was cut with a knife to see the damage to the PVC underneath. Note that the printing on the PVC is only slightly affected.
The hose is extemely flame resistant.
