Extensible gas hoses

Extensible Gas Hoses

Extensible gas hoses are usually used in domestic area to connect the distribution gas valve with the kitchen appliances, in most cases gas stoves. This type of hose is built in austenitic stainless steel 316L which is covered with yellow heat shrinking external coating, that it protects the hose, from acid attack (pitting) and thermal variations. The non-flammable PVC cover also protects the hose against corrosion, fire and mechanical damages. The yellow PVC coating is optional, which means the hose can be manufactured with or without the PVC sheathing. The hose working pressure is 6 Bar and provides highly flexible and extensible connection.

Extensible gas hoses are exposed to special heat treatment. Heat Treatment eliminates the stress caused by the tubing, mechanic forming and fitting welding processes and increases the flexibility, while reducing the spring rate accordingly. Heat treatment helps the hose to save its original form and shape.

This product can be installed in the tightest bending radius with no reduction in the cross-sectional area. Its extensible structure provides great connection capabilities for non-classified distances. Thanks to its flexibility and extensibility the installation of these gas hoses is cost-friendly and time-saving.

Can easily be extended to meet the customer needs as shown in the video below to provide the best connection possible. It can be manufactured in all lengths starting from 90mm up to 2000mm. Application on gas stoves, fireplaces, grills, barbecues, combi boilers, hot baths and water heaters is compatible.

We design and supply precision-engineered gas hoses that are known for their superior functional value, utility, performance and durability. These hoses come in a wide range of specifications and confirm with established industry standards and guidelines. Our extensible gas hoses are checked and tested in-house as per the specifications.

All the parts are subjected to rigorous sealing tests and vacuum heat treatment. High in quality, reliability and performance, these products confirm to regulatory standards and prescribed quality standards.

EN 14800 GAS HOSES

EN 14800 Gas Hoses

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.

Fittings and models of EN 14800 Gas hoses

  • Gas hose with SWIVEL NUT AND NIPPLE
  • Gas hose with BAYONET
  • Gas hose with Female to Female | Female to Male fittings
  • Gas hose with 90° ELBOW

It’s quick, easy, simple and inexpensive installation also adds on the pros side.

Additionally, this hose can also be used for Natural Gas connections.
