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 damage and leakages, and many health and safety considerations.

Let’s run through some of these further.

Improve efficiency

The hose guard protects the hose and tubing inside from damage, which reduces the overall cost of replacements.

The hose guard’s protection reduces the overall cost of replacements because it protects the hose and tubing inside from external abrasions and wear and tear, which would otherwise require the internal tubing to be replaced to continue operating the equipment.

This protection improves your operations’ efficiency due to a lower risk of damage to the hose and tubing inside. As you should need to replace the internal tubes less often, your operators can continue longer with 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

Suppose your hose and tubing contain chemicals, acids or other substances that could harm human health or the environment. In that case, 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.

Easy to attach and can keep multiple hoses and tubes confined

The hose guards are easy to attach by wrapping or threading the hose. The nylon hose guard can tidy up and protect several hoses or electrical cables simultaneously.

Can be custom made

These can be made to your specification if you require bespoke hose guards. Contact our office to discuss your requirements for a free no, obligation quotation.

Types of hose our hose guards can protect

Our nylon spiral-cut hose guards are perfect for protecting hydraulic and standard hoses. They are popular for use with agricultural machinery and similar hose and tubing types.

Can work with a high-temperature range

Our guards’ maximum recommended continuous working temperature is 70°C with occasional limited periods of up to 120°C, with a minimum operating temperature of -40°C.

This high temperature makes these guards ideal for various applications at varying temperatures.
