MODEL: 8D
SUPPLIER: All-American Hose

Rugged and quality-built to meet NFPA 1961 Standard requirements, the portable 8D is the essential municipal-grade, double jacket attack handline hose. The lightweight Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber liner creates consistent flow and is manufactured to a service test pressure of 400 psi to handle the toughest fireground challenges. It boasts a wide temperature range – capable of being used at a mine in Alaska or a construction site in Arizona – which helps earn 8D its reputation as the ultimate multi-purpose hose.  

  • Construction: Polyester double jacket EPDM rubber inner liner
  • Temperature Range: -40˚ to 150˚F (-40˚ to 65˚C)
  • Available in 50 and 100 in.
  • Service test: 400 psi
  • Couplings: Aluminium or brass NH/NST, IPT threaded


Sturdy. Double jacket, rubber lined hose made from 100% high tensile strength ring-spun polyester yarn with a lining of extruded EPDM. Excellent for tough applications such as construction sites, mines and industrial firefighting.

Reliable. The outside jacket utilizes a tight weave that is less likely to “catch” while dragging through the site and also helps to reduce kinking at low pressures, keeping the flow constant.

Extra Durable. Optional Dura-Cote™ treatment greatly increases abrasion, heat, flame and petrochemical resistance while virtually eliminating water pick-up. When treated, 8D is protected from mildew and no drying is required.

Flexible. Hose remains flexible to temperatures as low as -40°F (-40°C) and is highly resistant to ozone and oxidation.

Certified. Manufactured in accordance with NFPA 1961 Standard, latest edition within our ISO-9001 certified quality assurance system.

DURA-COTE™ Your advantage on the fireground

Exclusive Dura-Cote™ hose treatment creates a virtually impenetrable shield that increases hose performance and durability, while extending service life. Dura-Cote is a nitrile/latex (emulsified rubber) material that is force applied—not sprayed—and cross-linked via a high temperature curing process. 

Protective Dura-Cote provides superior abrasion, heat and chemical resistance, far surpassing the minimal standards of MIL-H-24606B. Compared to competitive coatings made of urethane or acrylic, nitrile/latex has remarkably better flexibility and ultra-low temperature maneuverability.

  • Ten times (10X) more abrasion resistant vs. untreated hose
  • Five times (5X) greater flame resistance vs. untreated hose
  • Resistant to solvents, oil and other hydrocarbons
  • Prevents water pick-up
  • Eliminates fungal growth U.V. and ozone resistant
  • Available in seven vibrant colors for clear identification
