Cable Protectors FAQ
Why are there so many different types?
We offer a complete range of cable protectors from pedestrian cable covers to heavy duty vehicle cable protectors so that we are ready to assist with any application. We also provide kerb ramps with channels underneath so cables can run below them.
What is the difference between a cable cover & a cable protector?
A cable cover is designed to drop over wires whereas cable protectors encase cables completely. Cable covers offer a swift installation/removal. Cable protectors offer a more secure protection.
Do you have cable protectors suitable for vehicles to cross?
Yes, we have options with capacities ranging from 2000kg to 15,000kg (per section) but please be aware as our 2-channel option is 105mm high it is only suitable for HGV’s & other vehicles with plenty of ground clearance.
How can I check the channel size?
All channel dimensions are listed in our product specification pages, if you are at all unsure or cannot find a suitable option please get in touch.
What are they made of?
The majority of our range is rubber although there are some polyurethane options. This means our products are heavy duty and hard wearing.
Can they be fixed in place?

The Adam Hall Defender® however come with fixing holes by standard. The fixings will not be supplied with the order.
Can cable protectors be used in a warehouse?

Can cable protectors be connected together?

Our lightweight cable protectors are available in lengths up to 9m, as they are lightweight PVC you can cut these to your required size when needed.
