Product Testing

Checkers™ has been protecting people and assets since 1987 as a leading manufacturer of cable protection systems, wheel chocks, warning whips, warning lights, and more. With over 25 years of experience, Checkers™ third-party tests and certifies most of our products. We have also worked with industry leaders and safety managers to field-test our products under various conditions to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of each product.


CABLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

All of Checkers™ Cable Protectors have been load tested by an independent third party laboratory utilizing a calibrated, universal load test machine with a flat plate measuring 6.9″ X 17.3″ (17.5cm X 43.9cm).


WHEEL CHOCKS

Checkers™ Wheel Chocks have been field-tested by expert team members under various conditions to prove our products prevent non-motorized, uncontrolled movement of on and off-road vehicles.

Checkers™ has also worked with a third-party laboratory to certify that each model meets the specifications indicated on the Checkers™ Wheel Chock Reference Guide. Specific models of our wheel chocks meet specifications required by MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency), and the DOT (Department of Transportation). Thorough testing must be completed at each location by users to ensure that specific wheel chocks will meet your specific chocking requirements.


WARNING WHIPS

Checkers™ Warning Whips meet the standard height and visibility requirements set forth by individual mines across the world. These heavy duty whips are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions and the most extreme temperature environments around the world.


INDUSTRIAL SIGNALS

Checkers™ Warning Lights have been tested by independent third-party laboratories to meet specific requirements. Our Barricade Lights meet ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers) specifications and are NCHRP-350 (National Cooperative Highway Research Program) compliant. Our Strobe Lights meet SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) J845, Class I, II, and III specifications.

Our team then uses innovation and advanced manufacturing processes to create effective industrial safety products that withstand the harshest weather and working conditions that exist in industrial applications. At this point, we again involve industry experts and safety managers to field-test our products under extreme working conditions. We also submit our industrial safety products to independent third-party contractors for testing and compliance evaluations. This rigorous testing protocol ensures Checkers products meet or exceed all industry compliance regulations and standards.

Another reason to work with Checkers is that our service professionals are trained to understand the safety issues in many industries. We can quickly help you find the right industrial safety products to protect your people and bring your business into compliance.
