Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT)

Compact Exhaust Removal System

MagneGrip’s Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT) is the most compact source-capture system available. It is the ideal system for firehouses with back-in bays that have low ceilings or narrow spaces between vehicles—needing only 19-24 inch aisles. The SFT system has no hanging hose loops that block access to doors or loading.


The expandable Flexhose extends and retracts along the track as the apparatus moves forward and back. When the apparatus operator starts the engine, the exhaust fan activates automatically. As the apparatus moves forward, the Flexhose extends to the end-stop and the nozzle automatically releases at the threshold of the door.


The no-loop Flexhose system is completely sealed so no toxic exhaust fumes escape into the firehouse. When the apparatus returns to the firehouse, the fan switches on as the MagneGrip nozzle connects to the tailpipe. The apparatus is then backed into the bay.

  • Die-stamped, 90-degree lifting elbow that eliminates hose pinch, twisting and sliding that occurs with rubber saddles.

  • Hose has an internal support cable that transfers weight to the lifting elbow and balancer to eliminate hose stretching and tearing. The cable also ensures easy release of the nozzle.

  • Lower two feet of hose is 1,000°F-rated. It can be fitted with an optional handle that makes connecting quick and easy. The lower hose section is an automatic upgrade.


Sliding Flexhose Track Systems are available with either Magnetic Nozzle or Pneumatic Nozzle.

MagneGrip offers several Start Options, which can activate the exhaust fan prior to the vehicle starting or when the vehicle starts.

"The MagneGrip Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT) system is simple to use and there are no loops that take up a lot of space. It is good quality and it operates effectively and efficiently."

- Andrew Bezenah, Assistant Fire Chief, West Bloomfield Twp. (MI) FD
