Did you know that 10% of fires account for 90% of loss of life and property? House fires spread especially fast, typically taking 7 minutes to blaze out of control.

Let’s break it down. It can take 1 minute to receive a 911 call and dispatch, 3 minutes to route to the fire emergency, and sometimes up to 1.5 minutes to get the first drop of water flowing. That only leaves firefighters 1.5 crucial minutes to manage the flames. Bottom line? Every second counts.

To better protect our communities, a growing number of our nation’s fire departments are making solid strides toward improving efficiencies and speeding up response times by updating current systems with innovative, streamlined solutions. Storz adapters are a prime example of these efforts.

Storz adapters are widely regarded as a time-saving, effective alternative to locking hoses with threaded couplings, which can often take several turns to connect a hose to a hydrant. Fyrelane USA’s newly-designed, American-manufactured Storz adapter system quickly and easily connects with a simple quarter turn — in 3 seconds or less — without removing caps, unjamming chains or worrying about cross-threading, which can put a hydrant out of service.

Our innovative, patented Storz adapters are made of 6061 T-6 forged aluminum with rugged 316 stainless steel butterfly vanes designed for maximum efficiency by automatically opening with water flow and automatically closing when water flow is stopped. Plus, they standardize hydrants to fit a fire truck’s need for 5” Storz or 4” Storz connections, and allows for quicker response times by limiting the use of threading adapters at the scene.

Fyrelane USA’s first-rate design makes our Storz adapter connectors tamper resistant and reduces maintenance costs. Plus, they can quickly and easily be installed. And an entire system can be converted for a fraction of the cost of conventional Storz fittings. However, it’s not necessary to convert an entire system all at one time. We’re also able to customize engraving into the Storz for a more professional, long-lasting look.
