Articulation

With its new design, the Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System articulates left and right, allowing it to turn corners and adapt to the layout of a room while still fully protecting any cords, cables, wires, and hoses underneath.

Secure Portability

Cords and cables snap securely into the bottom of the Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System and can be left in place for the ultimate in portability. The small size system (with cord in place) can be coiled for easy portability and transport.

Customizable Length

The Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System is available in standard lengths but, because of its modular design and segmented construction, custom lengths can be created from 1.5″ to an unlimited length with the large size.

Drive-Over Capability

Integrated support ribs under the Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System provide outstanding weight-bearing capacity allowing for vehicles with pneumatic tires to safely drive over cords, cables, wires, and hoses without damaging them.

Cord & Cable Protectors Help to Prevent Fire Hazards

The Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System helps to eliminate the fire hazard associated with electrical cords, as its rigid structure keeps the cords from being impacted while maintaining the integrity of the insulation that keeps wires from shorting out.

  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) – “Electrical cords should not be run under carpets or rugs, as the wires can be damaged by foot traffic, then overheat and ignite the carpet or rug over them.”
  • U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission – “Never cover any part of an extension cord with… rugs… while in use (and) never place an extension cord where it is likely to be damaged by heavy furniture or foot traffic.”
  • U.S. Fire Administration – “Many avoidable electric fires can be traced to misuse of electric cords, such as… running the cords under rugs or in high traffic areas.”

Cord & Cable Protectors Help to Prevent Injury or Death

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that approximately 2,000 fractures, lacerations, contusions, or sprains are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year from people tripping over extension cords. (CPSC Document #16)

The Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System provides trip protection from the three most common conditions whereby injuries and even death occur.

  1. It protects from trips when you step on a round cord and it rolls under your foot.   The rubber feet on the bottom of the Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System keep it from sliding when stepped on.
  2. It protects you if you kick the cord. A cord that does not move when kicked creates a trip hazard. The Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System is designed to give when kicked, thereby minimizing the hazard.
  3. When cords, cables, wires, and hoses are not covered and protected, they can “loop up” and not sit flat on the floor. This loop creates an opening for one’s foot to get hooked into, thereby causing a potentially traumatic trip or fall.  The Ultra-Sidewinder™ Floor Cord & Cable Protection System eliminates this concern.

The Ultra-Sidewinder helps meet OSHA regulations: 29 CFR 1910.304 · 29 CFR 1910.305 and also satisfies the National Electrical Code – Section 525.6.
