Low Profile Guard Dog Cable Protector
The low profile guard dog cable protectors are manufactured in compliance with the guidelines provided by NEC, OSHA, RoHS, REACH and MUTCD. They are made of high quality and durable material which is treated with UV-stabilizing technology and temperature treatment for providing increased protection to your valuable cables and ensuring the safety of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
According to the American Disability Act of 1990, certain rules and regulations have to be followed for ensuring non-discrimination of handicapped people in public areas such as parks, schools, government buildings etc. Using low profile guard dog cable protectors serves to increase the life of cables and cords while providing a safe crossing to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Manufactured with MUTCD-recommended colors, these cable protectors are more noticeable from far distances. Exposed cables, cords and hoses present a serious tripping and safety hazard for pedestrians and vehicular traffic, especially if left unattended.
Key Features of Low Profile Guard Dog Cable Covers
- The low profile guard dog cord covers are designed and manufactured with high quality, durable polyurethane material. This non-biodegradable material is not affected by extreme temperature conditions.
- The outside width of 0.75" provides increased security to hoses, lines and cables within.
- These low profile cable ramps are only 1.25" high from the surface – this makes them a safe crossing point for pedestrians and vehicles. The low height also makes it easier for handicapped people to cross the ramp without requiring support.
Benefits of Using Low Profile Guard Dog Cable Covers
- The threat of tripping or stumbling increases due to bare cables. Dangerous cables can prove to be fatal, if left uncovered. Exposed cables can easily catch fire or they may burn when exposed to high heat or inflammable liquids/solvents. Low profile guard dog cable covers provide adequate protection to people on foot and allow them to notice the upcoming risk.
- In compliance with NEC, OSHA, RoHS, REACH, and MUTCD, safety symbols are mounted on the lid.
