Elasco Cable Protectors

 Posted on: September 10th, 2021

Elasco Cable Protectors

From pit mines to church festivals, tough and durable Elasco cable protectors prevent damage to your important cables. Designed for light-duty to extreme-duty applications, they're made right here in the United States with American materials and labor.

What sets Elasco Cable Ramps apart?

Polyurethane Construction for Better Strength, Durability and Longevity

Compared to rubber and plastic cable ramps, the high-quality polyurethane construction will not rot, degrade, or crack over time, and can withstand the elements with superior resistance to grease, oil, and other chemical substances. Unlike certain plastics that are prone to breaking under high impact, the polyurethane bases and lids hold up under high impact while retaining elasticity and strength.

Compared to metal, polyurethane is lighter, less noisy, and will not rust or corrode. It typically outlasts and outperforms metal by three times longer.

Open-Cast Molding

The open-cast molding process means Elasco polyurethane cable ramps are stronger than typical injection-molded polymers. The hot-cast process provides a long, slow cure and post-cure that enhances the cross-linking of the polyurethane molecule.

Gridded surface traction

The distinct gridded look of Elasco's ramps stands out from the usual diamond plate design that you most frequently see on cable protection solutions. The grids allow moisture and mud to settle and fall into the grooves for better traction for tires or work boots.

Reinforced lid hinge

Unlike some cable ramps that feature grooved false hinges or pivot points for the lid, each cable ramp lid is connected to the base by a reinforced fiberglass rod that runs the full length of the hinge to make it easier to lift open or close, and provide additional strength use after use.

Patented glow-in-the-dark technology

This unique embedded glow strip helps increase cable ramp visibility in dark or low-light conditions, and is available as an option on at least one piece within each Elasco line. The embedded glow strips only require 10 seconds of UV exposure to fully charge, and will glow throughout the night with no maintenance, batteries or electricity required.

In most true dark environments humans can see 3.7 milli-candellas once our eyes have adjusted (which takes most people between 15-45 minutes). Under pure darkness, Elasco’s glow material is visible for up to 40 hours once that dark-adaptation has occurred.

Please note that the unique glow material will not look as illuminated if the viewer is in or has been in the sun, or near other light sources. Light pollution will also impact the visibility of the glow material.

Meet the Elasco Family

Light-duty to extreme conditions, Elasco offers a selection of cable ramps with channels, weight capacities and designs that are tailored to specific jobsites.

All of the Elasco cable ramps gang with built-in connectors. Additional pieces such as end caps, left and right turns and X-intersections mean better cable management that is configured to your jobsite, warehouse, factory or working area.
