The Lay Flat Hose 38 mm (1 1/2"), presented by GARDENA, the preferred garden brand for millions of home and garden owners worldwide, is a modern and practical evolution of the classic water hose. The product combines various advantages, top quality and versatility. The flat hose with a diameter of 38 mm (1 1/2") when in use, flattens before and after water is pumped through it. This means the water hose is extremely space-efficient, it can be easily folded up and stowed away to save space. Ordinary hoses made of less flexible material and with a fixed diameter can be rolled up, but they take up a considerable amount of space. This flat hose is much more compact in comparison. Due to its high-quality manufacture and exceptional heavy-duty quality, this hose is an excellent addition to your garden accessories. It boasts a permanent pressure resistance of 8 bar and is capable of running up to a burst pressure of 24 bar. This not only allows for use as an everyday garden hose in connection with a water supply and submersible pumps, but also in agricultural irrigation. To withstand these demanding working conditions, strong durability is required. For this reason, this flat hose’s material is double-layered and has the added advantage of mesh reinforced PVC material. This makes GARDENA’s flat hose 38 mm (1 1/2") UV light and weather resistant, keeping it tough and ready for use even in bad weather conditions. The hose was manufactured in Europe using high-quality materials. For this winning combination of heavy-duty components and Made-in-Europe quality, GARDENA provides a customer-friendly 12-year guarantee.
