The NAHAD Hose Assembly Guidelines program provides a comprehensive set of minimum performance recommendations for the Specification, Fabrication and Design of Industrial, Composite, Hydraulic, Corrugated Metal and Fluoropolymer hose assemblies as well as additional Guides for Ducting and Custom Made Hose, all focused on ensuring hose assembly safety, quality and reliability.

NAHAD provides its Hose Assembly Guidelines products as training, reference and marketing resources designed to ensure safer, higher quality, more reliable hose assemblies. The Guidelines have been developed to assist hose assembly distributors, manufacturers and end-users by providing a basic set of performance factors related to the proper selection of components and recommendations for the design, fabrication and specification of hose assemblies.
