Hydraquip have been a major supplier of tap flexis into the UK market for a number of years. The WRAS hose range is easily distinguishable due to the red fleck in the braiding. They are manufactured with nickel plated brass fittings secured by stainless steel crimp ferrules onto a stainless steel over braided EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) non-toxic rubber tube which meets BS6920, KTW W270 and DVGW VP543. These hoses have a maximum operating temperature of 70°C and working pressures up to 15 bar @ 20°C.
The HQ Elegant range of push fittings and hose assemblies are finished in a deep chrome to complement installations where the pipe connection is visible.
