According to popular belief, the modern fire hydrant design invention is credited to Frederick Graff Sr., Chief engineer of the Philadelphia Water Works around 1801. Since then the design has been improved upon and many variations have been produced.
Fire hydrants have become an enduring symbol of Americana, which have a wide range of appeal for many reasons. However, real fire hydrants pose dangers due to their weight of literally hundreds of pounds and top-heavy tipsiness, not to mention the potential of sharp edges and the possibility of toxic paint, which could be found on salvage hydrants. If one could even be sourced.
At Icon Poly, we have developed a line of replica fire hydrants, which have become popular enough for us to give them their own website. Here you will find 7 of our most popular plastic fire hydrants for sale, which are made of polyurethane resins and fiberglass reinforcements, all weighing in at just 15lbs., or less.
Most of our fire hydrant props are made directly from negative impression molds taken off the real fire hydrants they represent, which makes them the most realistic replica fire hydrants available on the market.
If you are looking for realism to complete that street scene in a television, movie, or stage production, you will want to take a look at any of our Mueller or Clow replicas and choose which model will compliment your scene the most. If you are sourcing a fire hydrant for dogs, any of our replicas will work great, however, after years of input from our customers we have developed a model specifically as a dog fire hydrant and another as a dog park fire hydrant, which may fit your needs.
