When it was introduced in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act broke ground for civil rights and made America a better place for individuals with disabilities. These days, handicapped parking isn’t something most of us even think about; its presence is a given thanks to the ADA. While most of the regulations in the ADA […]

Cable protection is an often overlooked, yet crucial part of safety in the entertainment industry. Here at Checkers, we offer a wide range of cable covers and ramps designed to fit with any application and cable run. Here are the top five reasons why our products are the best fit for your venue:
5. Innovative modular designs fit any cable run
Nearly all of our cable protectors boast modular abilities. This is key for entertainment venues, as different types of events will require different cable lengths and configurations. Our cable ramps can be easily linked end to end by simply snapping our patented connectors together with a light press of a foot or hand. This makes setup a breeze, regardless of the length of cable needed for the event. The Guard Dog cable protector is a great example of this type of product, as its “Dog Bone” connectors allow configurations of any length. Additionally, we offer models that can be linked side by side, in such a way to accommodate an unlimited number of cables. The Yellow Jacket AMS is a great example of this type of product. This flexibility is what gives Linebacker cable covers the edge in the entertainment business.
A core part of our company mission statement “A dynamic, global team dedicated to protecting people, assets, and the environment,” is protecting the environment. While many of our products are designed to do exactly this, it’s also a broader company philosophy that we embrace. One example of this is the manufacturing process behind our rubber parking stops. We receive raw, recycled rubber from a variety of sources, including a local Bridgestone Tire factory. Using our proprietary polyurethane binder to hold the mixture together, we then create the premium, high-grade rubber that we mold into our parking stops. Between our two plants, we recycle an average of 1 million pounds of rubber per month.
