Underhill International has introduced its UltraMax Series, a new line of heavy-duty hoses for athletic and recreational areas.
The UltraMax Series for sports fields, parks and playgrounds includes four models: UltraMax Clear (Economy); UltraMax Green (Economy Plus); UltraMax Red (Super Strong); and UltraMax Blue (Premium). All hoses have machined brass couplings and are available in 0.75-inch and 1-inch widths, and 50-foot, 75-foot, 100-foot or custom lengths.
UltraMax Clear and UltraMax Green are fabricated from pliovic material and reinforced spiral yarn for strength. Clear is lightweight and has a 600 pounds per square inch (psi) burst pressure, while Green has a thick outer wall and 800 psi burst pressure.
UltraMax Red is made of EPDM synthetic rubber and reinforced with spiral synthetic yarn for extra strength under high working pressure. It has 800 psi burst pressure and is kink, tangle and abrasion resistant. It is also available in 25-foot lengths.
UltraMax Blue, a premium product, has a 1200 psi burst pressure and is made from durable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material. The hose is highly flexible and lightweight — up to 45 percent lighter than comparable quality hoses, the company says.
