Uncontrolled erosion in high traffic areas like gravel parking lots can have disastrous consequences. The GeoGrid system from Checkers is designed to prevent soil erosion in highly trafficked areas like parking lots and driveways.
Sloped gravel driveways are particularly susceptible to erosion. Over time, draining rainwater or snowmelt can deteriorate gravel driveways. If erosion control measures are not implemented, uneven driveways could lead to damaged vehicles or injuries. Ground stabilization systems are designed to provide erosion control on sloped gravel driveways.
Ground protection mats are intended to provide stabilization, temporary accesses, and turf protection for heavy vehicles and equipment in a wide range of working contexts, including construction, landscaping, utilities and entertainment applications. For more than 30 years, Checkers ground protection mats have been the go-to solution for protecting sensitive lawns or agricultural areas from being damaged by vehicle or foot traffic.
Cable protectors are intended to secure loose cables and hoses in crowded areas in order to prevent injuries resulting from slips and falls. Cable protectors will also help protect sensitive cables from being damaged by vehicles, carts or foot traffic. Using cable protectors that incorporate a non-conductive construction is intended to insulate cables and protect personnel or pedestrians from heat accumulation or electric shock.Cable protectors are designed to safely house sensitive cables and hoses in order to prevent trips and falls as well as provide safe crossing for vehicles or heavy equipment.
Cable protectors are designed to safely house sensitive cables and hoses in order to prevent trips and falls as well as provide safe crossing for vehicles or heavy equipment. Cable protectors incorporate different designs depending on their intended application. Rubber cable protectors are flexible and easy to deploy in light-duty contexts. In contrast, cable protectors with a urethane construction are more suited for environments with heavy equipment or high levels of foot traffic.

Trucking is big business. A 2019 study valued the U.S. trucking industry at $791 billion with more than 947,000 truck drivers employed. In a number of cases, instances of wheels not being properly secured resulted in trucking catastrophes—injuries or fatalities that could have been avoided with proper use of tractor trailer safety equipment like industrial wheel chocks.
ADA ramps are cable-protection ramps designed to provide an easier crossing for wheelchairs, pedestrians, and vehicles. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed into law in 1990. Title III of the ADA requires places of public access as well as commercial facilities to accommodate persons with disabilities by implementing structural accessibility features in compliance with ADA standards. ADA ramps from Checkers Safety™ have a wide range of applications. The principal application for ADA ramps is to provide ease of crossing for wheelchairs or other pedestrians who might have difficulty navigating over a standard cable protector. In general, ADA ramps offer a more gradual transition from the ground to a cable protector’s surface.
When working on outdoor projects, it’s important to consider ground protection. Landscape damaged by heavy equipment can be expensive to repair. Plus, uneven or muddy ground at job sites may cause project delays or stoppage. But what should you use to protect soft or sensitive ground conditions?
