Ball Shutoffs & Tips

When it comes to controlling a hose's flow and spray pattern, ball shutoffs and nozzles work hand in hand.

Lightweight yet durable, a ball shut-off valve swivels to release the flow of water. A grip directly attaches to a nozzle or tip for a greater degree of control - for example, providing a constant, steady stream or a narrow, spray or alternating pattern.

About Ball Valve Shutoffs

For fire departments, as well as industrial and other workplace applications, a ball valve shutoff attaches to a fire hose to manage the flow of water. It can also act as an in-line shutoff valve between two fire hoses.

In order to deliver just enough water to put out flames, a ball valve shutoff:

  • Typically connects to multiple nozzle and tip styles.
  • Features lightweight aluminum or alloy construction.
  • Meets NFPA 1964 standards.
  • Often has a female swivel fitting designed to screw onto a male thread.
  • Can attach to NH (National Hose), NST (National Standard Thread), NPSH (National Pipe Straight Hose) or NPT (National Pipe Tapered) hoses and nozzles with a corresponding set of adapters.

About Nozzles and Tips

Nozzles and tips secondarily control the water flow, be it concentrating it, extending its range or changing the pattern through a twist operation.

Working in conjunction with a ball valve shutoff, tips and nozzles:

  • Focus the stream of water where you need it to go.
  • Present an array of discharges and patterns to extinguish commercial, wildland and more fires.
  • Feature lightweight, durable construction.
