Cable Protector Selector Tool
Find the best cable protector for your needs
This product selection tool will help you find the cable protection unit that is best suited to your intended application. Depending on the context for which they are manufactured, cable protectors incorporate various design features. To help you find the right cable protector, below is an outline of the design features you should consider when looking for the ideal product.
Load capacity refers to the maximum weight that a cable protector can sustain. In general, there are three tiers of load capacity: heavy-duty, medium-duty, and light-duty. A cable protector with a heavy-duty load capacity is designed to sustain large loads in rugged environments. These products are best suited for industrial applications with heavy vehicles or equipment.
A cable protector medium-duty load capacity is a general-purpose unit that has a broad range of applications. These units can be equally suited to industrial environments as they are to commercial venues. A cable protector with a light-duty load rating is best suited to contexts with light traffic or minimal cable runs such as public areas, offices, or homes.

ADA/DDA Cable Protectors
Another component to consider when looking for the right cable protector is ADA/DDA. ADA cable protectors are designed to make crossing easier for pedestrians and vehicles. These products incorporate ramps with a gradual rise that offers a seamless transition from the ground to the surface of the cable protector.

Cable protectors are designed to hold a maximum number of cables or hoses. The number of channels a unit has indicates how many cables that a cable protector could house. The size of the channels, on the other hand, refers to the height between the base and the lid of the cable protector.
