Checkers cable protection for film set safety

With the bright lights and flashy special effects, it’s easy to forget that film sets are just as much work sites as construction zones or factory floors, and as such, film set safety is imperative. This recent article from OH&S reminds us of this, reporting on charges against Foodles Production Ltd over an incident that resulted in an injury to actor and national treasure Harrison Ford during the filming of “The Force Awakens.” Fortunately, Ford escaped the film with only a broken leg, far better off than his character, Han Solo. Still, this unfortunate accident highlights some of the safety hazards in the entertainment industry, hazards that we here at Checkers offer solutions to solve. Below are some of the innovative products we’ve designed with the entertainment industry in mind.

The Grip Guard Cable Protector:

5-Channel Lightweight Grip GuardFor lightweight solutions, look no further than the Grip Guard. Weighing in at a mere 12.75 lbs. the Grip Guard is the lightest cable protector on the market by a substantial margin. If portability and ease of set-up is a key concern, Grip Guard is the way to go. Boasting a load capacity of 10,000 lbs. the Grip Guard doesn’t sacrifice strength and durability and is still able to handle light vehicles without issues.

The Yellow Jacket AMS System:

Ten47YJAMS Media Power - CroppedWith the amount of cables on a film set, sometimes a five channel cable protector simply isn’t enough to get the job done. That’s why we offer the Yellow Jacket AMS System, a modular cable protection solution that allows for an unlimited number of five channel center sections to be placed together to accommodate an unlimited number of cables. Yellow Jacket is a name known throughout the entertainment industry and is synonymous with high quality, heavy duty cable protection.
