Cable Mats are widely used to cover and protect loose wires, cables and small hoses in workplaces and at events. Many will use even just regular entrance mats to cover up cables – this can in fact present as many hazards as it prevents. Non-specialist mats are not particularly good at arresting the rolling of cables which can therefore pretty quickly result in a trip or fall.
Instead of using cable mats, entrance matting or even regular mats PITTMAN highly recommend using cable protectors or cable covers.
Our best selling safety device for preventing slips and trips from trailing leads is the GHP Cable Tidy which comes in handy modular format, with male / female ends allowing you to form whatever length you require of cable protection. Furthermore these GHP Cable Tidy units are available to order in black or in yellow – allowing you to choose the correct balance for your workplace between high visibility or discrete.
For light to medium duty environments don’t forget the CR2 Pedestrian Cable Cover which has a handy lid and comes with the option of corner curved sections allowing you to form whatever shape you need to follow a particular route.
