Events or places hosting large-scale gatherings, such as concerts, sports contests, conferences, weddings, music and beer festivals, conventions, and amusement parks–where crowds convene– often require miles of electrical cords, extension cords, wires, and cables.
Cable protectors are used to safeguard valuable cords, wires, and hoses from physical damage, and to provide a safe pathway for workers and vehicles to cross over them. They can also be used to prevent slips, trips, and falls in the workplace, reducing workers compensation claims.
Depending on your industry and specific applications, buying cable protectors can be confusing. Here we provide a general overview to better determine the type of cable protector that suits your needs and help you with buying cable protectors.
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.
Checkers, internationally recognized leader in the field of industrial safety, has released a video that demos the strength and reliability of Checkers’ UC Wheel Chocks. This brief video overview shows how a relatively small piece of carefully designed polyurethane can protect employees and prevent vehicles in many industries from causing costly damage.
