Commercial gas hoses are the only appropriate connections for commercial equipment.Sometimes operators buy residential gas hoses to save money for their gas connections.This may seem like a cost-saver, but think about the costs down the line.The gas hose on movable equipment could always crack or break.This is a dangerous scenario with potential to cause equipment or facility fires.
Safety is the first reason not to use residential gas hoses in a commercial setting. Residential gas hoses are designed for a one time connection. These types are not to be removed until the connected home appliance is no longer operational.

PVC Gas Hose: The pcv gas hose is generally divided into three layers.The inmost layer is the pvc black rubber inner tube, the middle is the steel wire explosion-proof net, and the outermost layer is the pvc protective layer.The explosion-proof net plays the role of hung the pvc inner tube, and the protective layers acts as a flame retardant to prevent rat bites and sputum.
