Hose protectors are materials or devices that are used to protect hoses or hose connectors from damage. Using hose protectors can prevent costly down time and replacements due to hose failure.
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.
