Linebacker Drop-Over & Open Top Protectors

A case study published by the Transportation Department in 2013 revealed the need to place barriers and cable covers for reducing the number of collisions on 4-lane and 6-feet wide highways. Median crash patterns, including T-type intersections, can be secured with the use of linebacker drop over cable cover. This is essential for mitigating the risk of crashes especially on highways and in high pedestrian traffic areas.

Cable-related incidents are common in areas where hazardous cables are left exposed. This can be resolved by covering the cables with linebacker cable protectors. Our linebacker drop over cord cover is a heavy duty product which is temperature and UV treated to maximize functionality and life of the equipment.

Features of Linebacker Drop Over Cord Covers

UV-Stabilized Construction–Weather-resistant polyurethane construction is further strengthened with UV-stabilizing technology that decreases the chances of damage or fires due to extreme temperatures. It is also resistant to corrosion or rusting.

Modular Interlocking Design – Setting up, disassembling, storing and transporting linebacker drop over cable cover has been made easy with its unique modular interlocking design, which also makes it light-weight and more durable.

The linebacker drop over cable cover is easily visible even in areas with dim light. In bright lights, the linebacker drop over cord cover is easily visible from a distance of almost 250-feet. This is essential for the safety of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. If linebacker drop over cable protector is placed right after a road curve, a stop / slow paddle sign should be placed at least 50 feet before the curve.

T-Connectors–Each linebacker drop over cable protector is provided with T-connectors which can be used to connect the protectors with similar products for extended cover.

Increased Load Capacity – The number of channels, installation technique and manufacturing determine the load capacity of these cord covers. The load bearing capacity increases with the number of channels in a linebacker drop over cable protector. The load bearing capacity of 2-channel linebacker cord cover is 10,880 lbs per tire and 21,760 lbs per axle.
