Whether rinsing out equipment, washing down floors, or performing heavy-duty cleaning, hose reels are the most effective, convenient wash-down solution available. While more traditional options can present a variety of challenges, hose reels offer a host of benefits. For example, there is no need to manually wind a hose or fumble with mops or buckets. Hose reels help eliminate clutter and keep equipment neatly organized and accessible anytime. There's less risk of employees tripping. They're faster, easier, and more sanitary. Convenient access is easy, even overhead and in tight spaces, and hose reels are designed to last longer and clean well and are a better value over time. No matter the application, T&S hose reels offer a convenient and effective cleaning solution. T&S is proud to offer the broadest line of hose reels and accessories available. And all of our hose reels are designed and manufactured by T&S. Let's cover some of the basic considerations and choices when building the ideal hose reel for your facility. First, the reel series is an aesthetic choice between open and closed reels. Open reels allow visibility of the hose when retracted, as well as easy access for cleaning. Closed reels keep the hose out of sight when retracted. Next, consider your hose reel material. T&S offers highly durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, as well as epoxy-coated steel. T&S offers 4 hose lengths, ranging from 15 to 50 ft. The length of the hose should depend on the size of the cleaning area. It could be more efficient to install multiple hose reels for a particular space. T&S also offers choices in hose diameter, which determines your flow rate, in conjunction with existing water pressure and your choice of outlet device. T&S offers 3 diameters: 3/8", 1/2", and 3/4". An available range of outlet devices can help you tailor your hose reel system to your specific application, keeping in mind the size of the area and how the operator will hold the device. For multi-purpose use when cleaning out equipment or for general wash-down, choose the EB-0107 or the ergonomic B-0108H spray valve. For powerful wash-down of larger or more soiled areas, choose the ergonomic MV-2522 front trigger and the MV-2516 rear trigger or the MV-3516 aluminum rear trigger water gun. Also available is the EB-2322 extended spray wand, ideal for cleaning tiles and grout with its precise and broadly adjustable spray pattern. In addition to our standard models and configurations, T&S offers 2 specialty hose reel models: a 6 ft. compact, light-duty option and a 12 ft. compact, stainless steel option. Designed with versatility and easy operation in mind, the 6 ft. model features a reinforced 1/4" diameter hose for light-duty tasks. The 12 ft. model features an open design with a 3/8" diameter hose that's more pliable for maneuvering in tighter spaces. It's also perfect for undercounter installations. Both compact models are ideal for rinsing small equipment, such as combi ovens, dishwashers, and braising pans, or filling holding and warming tables with ease. Every non-specialty T&S hose reel model comes with an impressive array of standard features that ensure durability and ease of use. So, no matter which configuration you choose for your ideal hose reel, you can be confident that T&S has designed and manufactured a superior product that will meet your needs. Let's take a closer look at a few of the most important standard features. T&S hose reels feature extra protection around the hose outlet and facilitate full and free movement across a guide bushing, or rollers. This helps extend the life of the hose. Our hose reel mounting bases are engineered with extra holes and slots, making installations easier. A fully adjustable stop not only prevents complete retraction of the hose into the reel, it also gives users the option to select exactly how much hose length should hang for easy reach. Designed to eliminate excessive friction that can cause localized welding and splitting, a brass swivel spins freely on a durable, stainless steel shaft. An innovative ratchet pawl allows the hose to retract freely when fully extended, preventing inconvenient lock-outs, which can occur with competitors' models. In addition, the hose swivel allows 360 degree rotation of an outlet device to prevent additional stress on the hose. We also occur complete hose reel systems, including mixing valves, risers, shut-off valves, vacuum breakers, hose connections, and more. In order to get the most out of your hose reel and to keep your installation up to code, T&S offers an assortment of optional accessories. There are 3 types of mounting brackets: swing, pivot, and table leg, all designed to help increase the flexibility and reach of your hose reel. Swing brackets are ideal for wall-mount applications and allow movement from right to left. Our Easy Install model, shown here, makes it fast and simple for one person to install. Next, pivot brackets allow for 345 degree movement and are ideal for ceiling and tabletop applications. Table leg brackets allow the hose reel to swing under the table when not in use, helping to maximize space in smaller areas. Finally, we also offer vacuum breakers, mixing valves, shut-off valves, check-valves, and mounting kits. Hose reels offer key benefits that traditional wash-down solutions just can't match. Convenience, safety, efficiency, and versatility all across a wide range of facility types and usages, from janitorial work to restaurants, and from automotive uses to food processing. T&S is committed to providing the most comprehensive selection of hose reels on the market today and helping you configure the perfect hose reel for the job every time.
