Cable protectors are a great way to ensure your cables stay safe and in place. They can be used for many common 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 – Reducing Trip Hazards
The most obvious benefit is of course safety. Having cables and wires running all across the floor creates an extremely risky work space. This can lead to serious 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 are welcoming visitors and customers, having a space where cables are spewed all 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. The last thing you need after spending a small fortune to get your cables and electrical equipment just how you want, is for someone to step on them and break them. There is also the risk of damage being caused by hefty 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 equipment they are attached to.
