Hose and Cable Bridges
The importance of cable and hose bridges in any industrial setting cannot be underestimated. The range from DENIOS UK can help to protect your hoses from damage incurred by traffic and footfall in busy workplaces with lots of activity and heavy machinery in motion.
Heavy trucks or vehicles moving about in your company can cause damage to your hoses and cables when they repeatedly drive over them. These cables can be essential for keeping equipment in use. Therefore, if the wires are damaged and essential machinery falters, productivity and revenue can be drastically affected. Furthermore, damaged wires can lead to exposed electrical cables, which is a severe safety hazard. In order to remain compliant with health and safety regulations, hose and cable bridges should be installed.
It is essential for you to install high-quality hose ramp and cable bridges within your premises to help protect your hoses and wires. For example, our ramps to place over hoses, for hose diameters up to 120 mm are ideal for installation in any working environment in which machinery such as fork lift trucks or lorries are likely to be used, and will often drive over important hoses, cables and wires.
When hoses are left unprotected, there are various potential hazards that may occur. The weather poses one potential threat to hoses. For instance, UV exposure over a long period of time can significantly damage hoses, while exposure to extreme cold and severe weather conditions can cause them to become weak. This means that they are more likely to burst when run over by vehicles onsite. However, a cable bridge from DENIOS UK can provide ample protection to ensure the longevity of your hoses and cables, which will not be as susceptible to external forces which impact their condition negatively.
Hoses and cables can also be protected with quality cable ramps to ensure that they cannot easily be moved aside by either vehicles or human traffic. Loose cables that are not properly re-enforced can be a source for accidental trips by employees or visitors to the site. Avoid these simple but costly accidents that may otherwise occur by installing high-quality kerb ramps, including our kerb ramp, rubber, black-refl. Yellow, incl. anti-slip surface, H 150 mm from DENIOS UK.
Before you install the products to help protect your hoses and cables from traffic, it is best to evaluate the kind of activities that take place in the given area within your company. Things to take note of include temperature, moisture levels and the type of vehicles likely to be present.
