HEN's patented technology is designed for superior fire suppression
Whether it's an aggressive interior structure attack, or progressive wildland hose lead, HEN’S superior water placement suppresses fire faster, hence conserving water.
THE FUTURE OF FIREFIGHTING IS HERE
THE WORLD'S FIRST ADJUSTABLE SMOOTHBORE NOZZLE
With a simple quarter turn, our nozzle goes from solid tight stream to solid in-line blade pattern.
SUPRESSES WILDLAND FIRES FASTER WHILE USING LESS WATER
Our patented blade pattern results in wide coverage and deep penetration for faster vegetation fire suppression
ENHANCED FIRE-FIGHTER SAFETY
Enhanced surface cooling, with less disruption of the thermal layers, leads to faster extinguishment resulting in improved civilian and firefighter safety

Latest Update from Demo Burns in Texas
In Oct 2023, HEN Nozzles conducted a live demonstration burn using modern fuel package in Hillsboro, TX. Partnering with some of the best in the fire industry, like West Coast Fire Training (WCFT), Live Fire Acquired (LFA) and LeGear Engineering FD Consulting (Dennis of LEFDC), the subject matter experts at HEN, Ray McCormack and and Eric Guida developed and approved the burn plan. A HEN 160GPM@50PSI Blade Nozzle was used on all of the burns with Chief Kyle Romagus as the nozzle operator. All parties assisted in burn designs to ensure that various suppression scenarios where examined safely under very heavy fire conditions these included: a hallway advance, unvented room push, vented room push, multiple room fires, transitional attack, and large area fire. All of the fire attacks where achieved using the HEN's bladed pattern, this was done to demonstrate it's superior characteristics around coverage and extinguishment vs straight of solid streams. The excellent results seen in these videos are related to the Bladed pattern's ability to nearly simultaneously capture, floors, walls, ceilings, fuel packages and gas layers. This is based on its unique triangular shape, which produces an instant and continuous large droplet distribution of suppression water within the space with a concentrated edge of critical flow water cooling all surfaces it passes over.
