Hose protectors are materials or devices that are used to protect hoses or their connectors from damage. Using hose protectors can prevent costly down time and replacements due to hose failure.
Hose wrap: Hose wrap is a spiral piece of plastic that fits the diameter and length of your hose. It is sometimes called spiral wrap or plastic wrap. It is easy to install, and you do not always need to remove the hose to install it. Hose wrap can be bought in longer lengths up to 20 metres, but it is possible to purchase smaller lengths that have already been cut down to size.
Hose connection protectors: These are within the region of 10 centimetres long and specifically protect the hose and clamp connection from damage.
What do hose protectors do?
Hose protectors defend against abrasion, vibration, rubbing and many are shock resistant. Some options help to reinforce hoses by making them more crush resistant. Some hose wraps also offer protection against oil, acid and solvents, UV Rays and other contaminants in the atmosphere. While many hose wraps are black, some are brightly coloured to help prevent tripping.
Despite the added durability, hose protectors still enable full flexibility of the hose, and do not impact its functionality in any way.
