Superior Handling of Heavy, High Speed Vehicular Traffic

Vehicular traffic produces the greatest impact on a cable protector’s leading edges and its ramps. Yellow Jacket’s superior engineering and materials have been proven in 25 years of demanding use, making them the most durable on the market. Yellow Jacket® cable protectors are able to absorb significantly more impact from vehicles due to the design of their ramps, which includes:
