To help keep air hoses and electrical cables working in extreme winter weather conditions, Sloan Transportation Products has introduced its new MAXXDuty 3-in-1 Wrap, which consists of two 3/8-inch rubber air lines equipped with Sloan’s Dura-Grip handles and one 7-way ABS electrical cord, tightly bound together with a spiral wrapping.
“This product has been very popular with our Canadian customers who are exposed to some of the harshest conditions,” says Chris Terryn, product manager for Holland, Mich.-based Sloan. “When snow and ice accumulate on the top of the trailer and a driver makes a quick stop, the build-up can shift forward, falling between the truck and trailer, causing the coiled air and electrical lines to become damaged. By combining these three components into one tight bundle, our product provides added strength to protect vital systems against winter’s worst conditions.”
The 3-in-1 Wrap also helps keep coiled air lines from becoming entangled, a frequent problem during normal service that can limit the operational range and create difficulties in replacing a failed hose assembly; it also provides one assembly to store and maintain when bob-tailing. The Sloan 3-in-1 Wrap is available in 12-, 15- and 20-foot lengths; additional black wrap can be purchased in 15- or 100-foot lengths.
