Safetyflex® is a premium hose used in the loading and unloading of gasoline, oil, and other petroleum products at dock installations, and like all Thermoid® dock loading hoses, meets all U.S. Coast Guard requirements. With exceptional strength (a 13:1 safety factor) much greater than conventional hose, Safetyflex® features a unique coupling design that protects against blow-offs and leaks. Its reinforced layers of spiraled high-tensile steel wire and synthetic fabric plies between the wire and tube provide exceptional strength, durability, long life and maximum flexibility, and guards against bursting even at high working pressures.
