What are Air Hose Reels Used For?
Air hose reels are used to store and dispense air hoses in a convenient and organized manner. They are typically mounted on a wall or ceiling and commonly used in automotive repair shops, woodworking shops, and manufacturing facilities. The most common type is a spring driven reel which incorporates a coiled spring to retract the hose back after use. Motor driven, hydraulic, and hand cranked reels are also popular. Reels prevent tangling and extend the life of the air hose as well as reducing common hazards such as tripping or interfering with other tools and equipment.They are available in various sizes and configurations so it's important to know how much length you will need along with the hose type and diameter of the hose.
