BS EN 694:2014

Fire-fighting hoses. Semi-rigid hoses for fixed systems

Status : Current, Under review   Published : August 2014



This European Standard specifies the requirements and test methods for semi-rigid hoses for fire-fighting purposes for use with fixed systems. The hoses are intended for use at a maximum working pressure of 1,2 MPa for hoses of 19 mm and 25 mm inside diameter and 0,7 MPa for hoses of 33 mm inside diameter.

Hoses conforming to this European Standard are intended for applications where long intervals can occur between the occasions of use, for example on fixed fire hose reels in buildings and other construction works.

This European Standard applies exclusively to hoses for fire-fighting purposes intended for use at ambient conditions in non-aggressive or non-corrosive atmospheres within the temperature range −20 °C to +60 °C.


Hoses for use at ambient temperatures below −20°C can be supplied if they have been tested at the specified lower temperature in accordance with 6.4 and identified by their marking in Clause 8 f).


All pressures are expressed in megapascals. 1 MPa = 10 bar
