According to Ray Torres, Checkers’ President and CEO, “We
attribute our success to educating industries to view safety as an investment and not a cost.”

Checkers Industrial Safety Products announced the immediate availability of their new lightweight Grip Guard® 5-Channel Cable Protectors with patent-pending Gripper® Connectors. At an easy-to-handle weight of only 12.75 lbs, Grip Guard® is up to 60% lighter than other polyurethane 5-channel cable protectors, and up to 75% lighter than the rubber 5-channel cable protectors without compromising strength or durability. This lightweight design makes Grip Guard® ideal for public entertainment events, light commercial and utility applications.

One of the unique features of Grip Guard® is its Gripper® Connectors, which are ergonomically designed to fit your hand. This allows for easier transport and placement of cable protectors at job sites. Gripper® Connectors create a modular system that allows users to easily lock multiple cable protectors together for any desired length.

“This lightweight design makes setting up a run of cable protectors a lot easier for workers,” said Jesica Bailey, Product Manager and employed by Checkers Industrial Safety Products for nearly 8 years. According to Bailey, “There are many applications where cable protection is needed but the traffic does not require the use of a heavy duty protector. Grip Guard® is a perfect solution that expedites setup and provides a safe crossing for pedestrians and vehicles while protecting cables.”

Additional features of Grip Guard® Cable Protectors include a Snap Fit™ hinged lid, five individual channels for cables and hoses up to 1.25” outside diameter, a patented 5-Bar tread pattern for maximum traction, and a recessed carrying handle. Grip Guard® Cable Protectors are made from maintenance free, high impact absorbing, non-conductive polyurethane that is resistant to oil, fuels and lubricants.

The safety of people and property is the number one priority at Checkers. Their Yellow Jacket brand pioneered the cable protector industry with the debut of the first 5-channel model at the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Checkers now manufactures the industry’s six most popular brands and has grown to become the world’s most trusted manufacturer of cable and hose protection systems.
