How Do You Choose The Right Cable Ramp Or Protector For Your Business?

Every activity is different, so are cable protectors and cable ramps. Choosing the right cable ramp for your office, store, warehouse, or factory seems quite complex at first glance. Do not worry. Just look at where you want to install it and find out about the space you have, the equipment, the traffic situation (that is to say, the number of people or vehicles that will pass over the protector), as well as the conditions—potential for compliance and security.

Now you have to choose the cable protector according to the needs of your business. To help you a bit, we have recreated some situations where we offer you organizational solutions for your cables.

The Situation: Phone and computer cables are cluttered around your desk. You tend to step on it and even trip over it.

The solution: In this situation where, pedestrian traffic is relatively light, we recommend that you use small capacity cable protectors to organize and secure everything lying around your office. Small capacity protectors are often made of plastic, have small filling capacities, are very light and flexible. They are generally pre-slotted for easy storage of cables. Finally, you can also put them on the ground or fix them.

What if your office is carpeted? Cable protectors will be perfect for your installation. This product is very flat, clings to the carpet with a hook and loop, and can be moved around for endless reuse. It is more practical than an adhesive strip since it will not leave marks on your carpet and can even be machine cleaned.

The situation: The cables in your warehouse need to be protected from the occasional passage of a forklift, but you find that high-capacity cable protectors are too important and expensive.

The solution: Because of the machines, the heavy pedestrian traffic, and the passage of forklifts in some cases, warehouses represent a dilemma when it comes to installing cable protectors. The range of medium-capacity cable protectors would be suitable for warehouses in general; you need to assess foot and road traffic properly.

The situation: Your company creates outdoor events and needs to protect cables from pedestrians and road traffic. In addition, you must be able to comply with ADA security standards.

The solution: If your installation requires a combination of such elements, you should directly opt for high-capacity cable protectors such as Linebacker® or brands like Guard Dog ™. These cable protectors are made of molded polyurethane that can withstand (depending on the model) between 9 and 20 tons. These products are perfectly adapted to the passage of pedestrians and can even be customized with ramps and access rails for the disabled. The passage will therefore be facilitated for wheelchairs if necessary.
