The European Norm EN 14800 gas hoses was adopted for first time in 2007 to meet the need of improvements of the rubber hose which was most commonly used gas hose until then. The major advantage of the flexible metal hoses against rubber hoses is their high thermal, fire resistance and high operational reliability. That was also the main reason that put the rubber hoses out of the competition.
Since its first pioneer in 2007, the EN 14800 standard gas hoses have been constantly improved and updated. Nowadays it offers universal high safety standards that can be applied in the households throughout the countries of the European Union. Primarily designed for domestic use, the safe gas supply from the grid to the end-user was the highest priority for Platinflex.
This type of gas hose can be installed everywhere where the gas pressure in the system is lower than 0.5 bar such as: on heaters (indoor/outdoor), gas stoves as well as barbeques and all kinds of gas-powered appliances in the households. It’s three-layer assembly of a stainless steel corrugated hose in the inside, covered by stainless steel braiding in the middle (which prevents and protects the hose from external damage) and PVC layer partially covering the stainless-steel components which also prevents corrosion if exposed to water or chemicals. The whole composition gives us a flexible and durable gas hose and safe and easy-to-use application to the customer.
