The “Wind Handler WS” flexible hose is a single-ply neoprene coated polyester fabric hose with a wear-strip designed for air applications. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is produced by the polymerization of chloroprene and exhibits good chemical stability and flexibility over a wide temperature range. The duct materials used in this product are highly compressible and retractable. The compressibility of this ventilation ducting allows a 25 ft length of hose to be compressed down to just over 2 feet! This is especially useful when the air duct needs to be transported to a different location.
This product is unique because it features a wear-strip that provides external protection against abrasion and wear. The duct materials used in its construction make this hose ideal for moving large volumes of air in both portable and permanent ventilation systems. This flex hose is easy to handle and has the ability to bend and flex around small spaces and corners. The “Wind Handler WS” flexible hose is listed as UL 94 V-0 flame retardant. Being constructed of UL 94 V-0 listed duct materials means that the product will stop burning after being exposed to a flame within 10 seconds (given the source of fuel has been removed). This makes the hose ideal for applications where safety is a concern. This product has a working temperature range of -65 F to +250 F, allowing it to be used for a wide variety of applications.
The “Wind Handler WS” air duct comes in standard lengths of 25 ft with plain cut ends. Custom hose ends such as enlarged hose ends, reduced ducts ends, belted sewn cuffs, pull-tabs, flat bands, and nylon rings are also available for an additional cost. This ventilation ducting is sold in a standard yellow color with a black wear-strip. Custom colors such as olive drab, tan, blue, and white are also available for this air duct for an additional cost.
Standard ID sizes for this flex hose range from 4 to 24 inches, and custom sizes up to 52 inches are available upon request. This product is great for use in air movement applications such as utility blowers, humidity control, chillers, wave pool blowers, smoke ejectors, and mining.
