New Catalog Will Serve As Reference Tool for Dealers and Boat Builders Installing Shields’ Extensive Line Of Marine Hoses, Fittings and Clamps

Teleflex Marine has announced the availability of a new product catalog for their line of Shields Marine Hose. Given the wide variety of Shields hoses available, it is important that dealers and boat builders have a reference source that helps them determine the proper type of hose for a particular application, as well as available sizes and lengths. In addition to a product application guide, the new Shields Marine Hose Catalog provides installation information and indicates product compliance with appropriate SAE, ISO, USCG and NMMA/CE standards.

Hoses play a vital role onboard practically every boat on the water. Whether it’s the fuel delivery system, freshwater system or sanitation system, handling the flow of liquids safely depends upon the specification and installation of the right hose for the job. “This new catalog is laid out to allow dealers to quickly navigate to the right Shields hose and order exactly what they need,” said Tom Douglass, vice president of sales and marketing for Teleflex Marine. “We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers this comprehensive new tool.” For more information on Shields Marine Hose, contact Teleflex Marine at One Sierra Place, Litchfield, IL 62056 • Telephone: (217) 324-9400 • Or visit
