What are Nylon Spiral Cut Hose Guards & how do these benefit you?

Nylon Spiral Cut Hose Guard
Nylon Spiral Cut Hose Guards have many benefits. These include: improving the efficiency of the hose they are protecting, reducing the chance of both damage and leakages, along with many health and safety considerations. Lets run through some of these further.

Improve efficiency

Due to the hose guard protecting the hose and tubing inside from damage this means that: You reduce the overall cost of replacements as the hose and tubing inside the guards are protected far betters from external abrasions and wear & tear that will mean the internal tubing needs to be replaced to continue operating the equipment. Improved efficiency of your operations due to a lower risk of damage to the hose and tubing inside. As you should need to replace the internal tubes less often this means your operators can continue longer with needing less time to repair tubing that often gets damaged – meaning higher productivity.

Reduce damage, leakages & extend equipment life

Extend the life of your equipment and protect your hoses against wear and tear and accidental damage. Our hose guard protectors use nylon 12 polymers, these create an extremely durable outer guard that deflects abrasion and impact and is resistant to chemical corrosion, including petrol, oil and dilute acids.

Health and safety considerations

If your hose and tubing contains chemicals, acids or other substances that could be dangerous to human health, or the environment, hose guards help to reduce the risk of something going wrong and a split occurring to external abrasives hitting your hose and tubing. Our guards are REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant. As a result, your hose and tubing should be safe to use and last longer, while reducing the risk of tubing and hose failure.
