We offer many different thread choices to accommodate our customers throughout the USA. We maintain a card file in our office with thread types used by various cities throughout the USA.
Our standard threads are NST (NH). They will typically drop ship quicker from Kochek’s vast inventory. NSPH can also be supplied for no additional charge. FDNY (New York City FD) and NYCORP (New York Corporation) are available for an additional fee. If your thread type is not shown below, please call us to discuss your requirements.
Storz is a type of hose coupling invented by Carl August Guido Storz in in 1882 that connects using interlocking hooks and flanges. It is sometimes referred to as a sexless coupling because rather than having a male and a female end connected by screw threads, either identical end can be joined to any other end of the same diameter. The main benefit to using Storz couplings is the speed of hose connection, as a hose can be locked with a quarter-turn.
National Standard Thread (NST), also known as National Hose thread (NH). It is the most common type of fire hose coupling used in the United States.
National Pipe Straight Hose (NPSH), also known as Iron Pipe Thread (IPT). It has the same TPI as NPT, but the thread does not taper. NPSH is a straight thread and seals by a gasket in the female coupling, which allows for a swivel, just like NH/NST, which makes both ideal for hose couplings.
We also offer custom laser engraving of your adapters for an additional charge. If you require this option, please select that option and type in the box the name or initials you want laser engraved. The price for laser engraving is for up to a maximum of 12 letters/numbers, and the size of your adapter limits us on how many letters/numbers we can engrave. Laser-engraved adapters are not subject to cancellation or return.
Delivery times are variable by the size and thread types you select. If you require any adapter in a rush, please give us a call, and we will be most happy to contact our factory for a lead time.
We are adapter specialists, and our goal is to help you order the correct adapter the first time. However, many adapters are made to order, and unfortunately, they are not subject to cancelation or return once your order has been submitted. Please call us before ordering if you are uncertain of your thread types, sizes, or other questions.
