Superior Thermal Resistance
Our Silco Sleeve® Firesleeve is engineered of high-quality knitted or braided E-glass fiberglass yarns in a flexible substrate, that are then coated with a high-grade, fully cured silicone elastomer. These industrial and aerospace-grade fire sleeves protect pipes, hoses, and cables from temperatures continuously up to 500°F (260°C) along with resistance to direct flame and molten splashes up to 2,200°F (1,200°C).
Unmatched Cable & Hose Protection
Resistant to hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils, and fuels, our fire sleeve insulates against energy loss in piping and housing, protects employees from burns and allows “bundling” of wires, hoses, and cables. The braided version of our fire sleeve meets the performance requirements of various industry standards.

What is hose size?
The hydraulic power industry uses a system of measurement called Dash Numbers or Dash Sizes to identify hose and fitting size. The Dash Number is the measure of a hose’s Inner Diameter (I.D.) in sixteenths of an inch. The inside diameter of the hose must be sufficient to minimize pressure loss and prevent hose damage from friction or turbulence. The hose I.D. must be sized accurately to obtain the proper flow velocity for the system. Slow fluid flow results in sluggish system performance and high fluid flow causes pressure drops, system deterioration, and leaks. Davlyn aerospace and industrial firesleeves for hose protection are available in sizes from ¼” (6.4mm) through 5” (127mm). Davlyn firesleeve with hook & loop closure is available in standard sizes 1″ (25.4mm) through 12″ (304.8mm) and can also be cut to size and formed into a custom sleeve of almost any diameter. Hose Outside Diameter (O.D.) must be measured accurately to determine the correct inside diameter of the firesleeve to use.
