HYDRAULIC HOSE GUARDS
NYLON SLEEVES / SPRING GUARDS / LIGHT DUTY / HEAVY WALL
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HYDRAULIC HOSE:
If you have a hose you are constantly replacing due to abrasion or wear issues - it makes sense to prolong the life of that hose!
We offer three ways to protect your hose.
1) Spring Guard (Sold in 10' Lengths) - spring guard is added before your hose is made as it will NOT properly fit over an assembled hose. (As with anything, you CAN make it work but we have yet to find a reasonable solution to that so make sure the spring guard goes on when the hose is made.)
Note: Order the size to match your hose - i.e. 1/4" spring guard will fit 1/4" hose.
2) Hose Sleeve (Sold by the Foot) - again hose sleeve is best put on when the hose is made, however it IS easier to add to a hose that is already made.You'll need to make sure the sleeve is large enough to fit over the hose end. You can also protect two or more hoses if the sleeve is large enough. Secure the hose sleeve with zip ties or band clamps.
3) Hose Wrap (Sold in 25' 50' & 100' Lengths) - can be added either before or after the hose is made! Hose Wrap also offers protection against Ultraviolet (UV) light and abrasion. It also provides protection against crushing. You can bundle two or more hoses with it. Note this wrap can protect many things besides hydraulic hose! You are only limited by your imagination. Hose Wrap comes in two grades - Light Duty or Heavy Wall.
