Linebacker Cable Protectors (T-Connectors)
Linebacker cable protectors offer a reliable solution for shielding cables and wires from traffic or providing a smooth and skid-free surface to pedestrians and light-weight vehicle traffic. Linebacker cable protectors are also used in the industrial areas for securing cable cords and hoses.
We offer two varieties in linebacker cable protectors, including heavy duty linebacker cord cover with lid and open-top/drop over protectors. Both varieties are manufactured with polyurethane and supported with fiberglass installation for reducing the chances of damage or breakage. The heavy duty linebacker cord cover with lid is rectangular in shape. Its low height makes it a suitable choice for heavy pedestrian traffic and low to average vehicle traffic areas.
Vehicles travelling under 30 km/hr do not experience a bump with these cable protectors. However, vehicles going above this speed may experience minor bump. To warn traffic of upcoming bumps, signage boards should be placed at least 200 feet before the heavy duty linebacker cable protector.
