There are two cable channels on the underside of this product to protect external cables. This makes it a popular choice for warehouses, construction and industrial sites. It's also useful for festivals and concerts, car parks. It is also a favourite of hire companies as at the end of a contract, the unit can moved to the next venue.

What is the Purpose of Sleeping Policeman?

At venues, warehouses and work sites there are often cables running around the floor. Some cables may have to run across roads or paths meant for vehicles. It's recommended that these cables should have protection. The protection should also stop vehicles running over the cables at high speeds. This product is a one-stop solution for both these needs. The sleeping policeman's shape handles the speed control aspect. Underneath, the cable channels protect cables that may be otherwise open to damage.

Where Might You Use a Sleeping Policeman?

This product is great for places where cables run across roads or paths used by vehicles. Temporary set-ups such as open-air concerts, industrial areas and construction sites. Permanent installations are often in car parks and warehouses. The 6-foot piece can lay across the road over the running cables as is, or can fix to concrete or tarmac surfaces. The sleeping policeman is ideal where cable damage from vehicles is likely.

Who Might Use This Product?

Construction crews find this an effective way to slow down vehicles on site. It will also protect cables running across roads to a site. Concert and festival organisers will also find them handy to protect expensive cables. Vehicles have to slow down for safety reasons. After an event, they get picked up and transported for use elsewhere. Parking areas or warehouses will find sleeping policeman useful as they can fix to concrete and tarmac.
