The Marine Industry

Richards Hose provide a vast range of products specifically designed for use in harsh marine environments.

We have two WRAS approved drinking water hoses, Aquaflex and Aquaman which can be supplied as bare hose or assembled with standard instantaneous couplings in corrosion resistant gun metal or anodised aluminium couplings as well as a full range of differing systems used on vessels throughout the world. Our WRAS approved marine hoses are suitable for all water transfer applications from dockside to vessels and to supply offshore oil platforms. They are also in use on many global cruise liners for pumping drinking water on board from dockside.

RHL provide a comprehensive range of products to commercial and passenger vessels ranging from MED approved hoses and storage solutions to bespoke hydrant valves for superyachts. 

Our marine hoses can also be seen domestically on a variety of canal side marinas for the supply of drinking water as well as other hoses being used for the pumping out of waste water and effluent.

For on board fire fighting applications we supply MED hoses with full certification and a range of approved fire fighting nozzles to suit. Landing valves and ship-to-shore flanges can be supplied with many systems from Storz, Barcelona, Gost, Machino, Nakajima, UNI, Guillemin to Instantaneous. Our range of flanges and valves have type approvals including ABS, DNV , Lloyds Register, Germanischer Lloyd and RMR and we welcome any enquiry for any non-standard bespoke valve configuration.

We supply a variety of NOHA (Norway) hose reels built specifically to withstand the demands of offshore installations such as oil and gas platforms and wind farms. External sleeving is also available in various diameters for on board rope and cable protection.
