About The Product
HYDRAULIC SHIELD™ has been developed to meet the Hydraulic Safety guidelines - MDG41.
HYDRAULIC SHIELD™ is a personnel and hydraulic hose protection product.
HYDRAULIC SHIELD™ completely encases the hydraulic hose loom. This patented product is simply wrapped around the hoses and fixed at each segment with a strap.
Designed to overlap the next piece, this gives a continuous protective shield along the length of the loom.
HYDRAULIC SHIELD™ has vent channels around the perimeter of the product as well as a membrane which when fastened with the straps acts both as a seal to keep stone chips and rubbish out, and as a relief valve for exiting hydraulic oil.
It spreads the force of a rupture across the length of the product, slowing down the oil to a trickle with limited force.
