It is available with a 1 inch (25mm) National Pipe Straight Hose (NPSH, NH, or IPT) thread, and provides between 10 and 30 GPM, depending on the stream selection.
S&H designed the bumperless dual-range fire hose nozzle to be lightweight and extremely durable for reliable use in wildland firefighting situations. This fire hose nozzle,¬ùwhich may be used in wildland and urban firefighting,¬ùcombines the ability of fog nozzles to remove heat from surrounding air, with the deeper penetration and reach that comes from discharging water from a straight stream nozzle.

It is ideal for use with 1 in. NPSH hoses that are commonly found in wildland fire fighting. It is durable enough to withstand conditions in the field without suffering cracks, breaks, or other physical damage.
