The YJ2-400 has been engineered to last, and there is currently no other product on the market that can effectively compete with it.

In a newly released white paper, Checkers Industrial Safety Products has announced the results of testing conducted utilizing its YJ2-400 Extreme Modular Crossover System, calling the results “exciting news for safety managers, engineers and supply chain managers.”

“The YJ2-400 has been the preferred crossover system for a number of applications since it was first introduced,” says Jesica Bailey, Director of Marketing for Checkers Industrial Safety Products. “Our goal was to clearly demonstrate its capabilities in one of the most grueling real-world settings: an extreme heavy duty mining operation.”

To test the product’s abilities, a 374-ton Liebherr mining truck was repeatedly driven over, and then parked on top of a standard YJ2-400. The subsequent reported issued by Senior Engineer Greg Widgery reported no deformity or breakage in the product.

“The results of the test show that our system is able to withstand the unique needs of our industrial, mining and military customers,” says Widgery. “It was designed and constructed for long-term use in these types of conditions—making it an invaluable life-saving tool for personnel on sites where heavy equipment is constantly in use.”

The white paper indicates the YJ2-400 features two channels designed to protect cables and/or hoses up to 3.75” in diameter. The system is modular, each 36” protector featuring dog-bone connectors to allow for unlimited expandability. It also features a reinforced hinged lid and is rated at operating temps from 40˚ to 120˚ Fahrenheit (-40˚ to 48˚ Celsius).

“Checkers has long been known for providing effective long-term solutions for our customers,” says Bailey. “The YJ2-400 has been engineered to last, and there is currently no other product on the market that can effectively compete with it.” The complete white paper is available at
