5 Benefits of Using Cable Protectors

Cable protectors are a great way to ensure your cables stay safe and in place. They can be used for many everyday purposes, such as preventing tripping hazards, covering unsightly wires or cords, and protecting against wear-and-tear on the flooring underneath.

Here are five benefits of installing floor cable protectors

One – Cable Protectors Reduce Trip Hazards

The most obvious benefit of using Cable Protectors is, of course, safety. Having cables and wires running all across the floor creates an extremely risky workspace. This can lead to severe injuries that could have been prevented easily by having these cords out of sight.

By installing floor cable protectors, you can be sure that you are decreasing the likelihood of serious injuries in the workplace.

Two – Creating a Tidier Space

When you welcome visitors and customers, having a space where cables are spewed across the floor doesn't give a great first impression of your business. Using floor cable protectors stops wires trailing loose on the ground and takes you one step closer to creating a perfectly tidy workplace.

Three – Protecting Cables

We know that cables and certain types of wires are not cheap, which is why protecting them is so important. After spending a small fortune organising cables and electrical equipment, the last thing you need is for someone to step on them and break them. There is also the risk of damage caused by big wheels from sack trucks and forklifts, harsh weather, or even pesky rats! Use floor cable protectors to extend the life and maximise the performance of your cables.

Four – Protecting Equipment

Unprotected cables are not only a trip hazard but can also damage the equipment they are connected to in the event of an accident. By leaving them unprotected, you are putting expensive, business-critical equipment at risk, including computers, server equipment and more. If somebody were to trip up on the unprotected cables or get caught up in them whilst transporting items around the workplace, it could leave you with broken or damaged equipment.

With cable protectors, you are effectively protecting both the cables and the attached equipment.

Five – Reliable Operation

By organising your business space with floor cable protectors, you can rest assured that you are also increasing staff productivity and improving your company's overall efficiency. This is because people work better in a neat, tidy and professional environment.
A bonus is that cable protectors prevent your wires from gathering dust and dirt, which is essential as dirt can negatively impact the overall effectiveness of the cables.
