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.
