Equipment that rely on a number of hydraulic hoses can experience separation when in operation. This separation creates situations where they can be tangled, snagged on obstacles and even damaged, creating a safety issue to personnel, loss of production and expensive repairs.
This clients hoses were situated in an underground mine operation which required a solution that would protect their hoses against damage but also required to be Fire Retardent & Antistatic (FRAS) rated
