EPDM Hoses for Building Services 1

Back in the early 1990’s Hydraflex began producing quality braided hose assemblies with an EPDM core and a stainless steel over braid for strength. Since then, the range has expanded to include thousands of different combinations from DN08 to DN50 hoses suitable for Building Services. These assemblies have gone through rigorous testing, having not once but twice been tested with BSRIA in 1997 and 2004, to ensure the quality and longevity of the assemblies produced.

Hydraflex’s range of EPDM building services hoses are a perfect solution to joining pipes without a need for intricate and time consuming pipework during installation. Our range of hoses offer a cost effective and time saving option whether they are used for building services, fan coils, chilled ceilings, pumps, heating or plumbing.

3. The Importance of Quality and Durability

Braided hoses play a crucial role in various industries and applications due to their significance in ensuring both quality and durability. The quality of a braided hose is paramount as it directly influences its ability to withstand pressures and temperature within the parameters of the system and requirements.

A well-constructed braided hose ensures a reliable and consistent flow of liquids without leakage or failure. Durability is equally vital, as a durable braided hose can endure wear and tear, extending its service life and minimising replacement costs. Hoses face challenges like temperature fluctuations and physical wear but with the correct maintenance and upkeep a braided hose offers a cost effective and ideal application for water systems.

This emphasises the need for high-quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship to guarantee performance and longevity for ease of installation and providing ongoing benefits.

Overall, the importance of quality and durability in braided hoses cannot be overstated, as they ensure the safety, efficiency, and productivity of various processes and systems while meeting pressure and temperature needs.
