    Storz Head component shall be forged from Alloy 6061 aluminum and heat treated to T6 temper. Adapters and components meet the requirements of NFPA 1963. Locking Storz are only available on 4, 5, and 6 inch. Locking springs prevent unintentional disconnects. Locks are stainless steel.

    Note - 3 inch NH / NST is very rare and is often confused with 2.5 inch NH / NST which is very common. If you have a fire department connection (FDC), hose coupling or an adapter check the female coupling for stamped numbers and letters. Most 3.0 inch hoses use 2.5 inch NH / NST couplings. The most common fire fitting thread in the United States is 2 1/2 inch NH /NST.

    If you have two swivel female FDC brass connections that need plugs measure the INSIDE diameter of the swivel fitting. If it measures approximately 3 inches, you need 2 1/2 inch NH / NST plugs. 3 inch NH / NST fittings measure approximately 3 5/8". If you have any doubt it is best to contact your local fire department for size and thread type in your area.

    If possible it is best to measure the MALE fitting. The outside diameter of a 2.5 inch NH / NST male hose coupling or fire hydrant is 3.06 inches. The outside diameter of a 3.0 inch NH / NST male hose coupling or fire hydrant is 3.62 inches. The outside diameter of a 2.5 inch NPT or NPSH male hose coupling is 2.84 inches. The outside diameter of a 3.0 inch NPT or NPSH male hose coupling is 3.47 inches.

    Connections

    • The female side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a male NH / NST connection
    • The male side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a female NH / NST connection
    • The female side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a male NPT pipe or a male NPSH connection
    • The male side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a female NPSH connection. It will NOT thread into a female NPT pipe. For example, a male NPSH coupling will NOT thread into a female metal or pvc pipe.
    • The female side of a garden hose will only connect to a male garden hose connection.
    • The male side of a garden hose will only connect to a female garden hose connection.

    NH / NST: The most common thread type in use by fire departments today is NST or National Standard Thread. NST also goes by the initials NH or National Hose. It can even be referred to as NHT or National Hose Thread but NST or NH is more common these days. NH = NST.

    NPSH: National Pipe Straight Hose (NPSH) or Iron Pipe Thread (IPT) has the same threads per inch (TPI) as National Pipe Tapered (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 make both ideal for hose couplings.

    NPT: National Pipe Tapered is common in plumbing and some industrial uses. Sometimes referred to as pipe thread because PVC pipe and schedule 40 pipe are typically threaded in NPT. As its name implies this is a tapered thread so that the outside diameter of the male (ODM) gets smaller towards the end of the fitting and the inside diameter of the female narrows with depth. As the two fittings are threaded together the opposite tapers force thread friction and makes the seal without the use of a gasket.
