Cablesafe contributes to a safe workplace. It is easy to suspend cables, wires and hoses with the hooks' simple, effective S-shape. According to the National Dutch Bureau for Statistics, 21% of industrial accidents are a result of falls caused by tripping. Effective use of Cablesafe safety hooks completely removes the occurrence of hazardous working conditions caused by cables lying on floors and reduces the chance of them being damaged.
Recently, Cablesafe developer Westmark has taken the product further by improving the design. Following demand from the industry, Westmark has added the new 15in hook, with a wider opening for large cables, to complete the range.
Cablesafe was developed for the offshore industry with safety as its highest priority. It has also proven its usefulness for other applications. Now refineries, chemical plants, shipbuilders and contractors love using safety hooks on decks, stairs, scaffolding and other structures. The industries adopted the product as a great idea for reducing trip hazards and promoting good housekeeping. The use of the Cablesafe hooks also reduced the time taken to install or decommission the temporary power and lighting infrastructures. Many companies demand the use of Cablesafe to conform to safety regulations. Cablesafe is standard safety practice with Shell, Akzo-Nobel, BASF, DOW, DuPont, Eon, ExxonMobile, BP and many others worldwide.
The S-shaped hook is remarkably strong. It can take loads of up to 300kg and withstand temperatures from -20°C up to 200°C (-4°F to 392°F). Cablesafe safety hooks are available in four sizes (6in, 9in, 12in and 15in), are fire-retardant, non-conductive and have very high UV-resistance ensuring long service lifetime. The hooks can be re-used many times, with the new design that uses less material, which makes Cablesafe a very sustainable product. A hole in each end of the hook enables the user to secure and fix the cable hook itself by means of a cable tie wrap. Cable hooks are suitable for bundled cables and have been extensively tested and approved.
Also available are 'glow-in-the-dark' hooks that provide extra orientation in case of power black-outs or other emergency situations. On request, the hooks are available with your company name and in your company colour.
