Anaconda Wrap Helps Prevent Brake Hose Chafing on Semi Trucks
In the world of transportation, the safety of semi-trucks is paramount. One critical aspect often overlooked is brake hose chafing, a problem that can compromise both safety and the lifespan of essential components. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance reported during their Brake Safety Week in 2022 that brake hose chafing is one of the more common vehicle violations, and one that can affect a motor carrier's safety rating. Fortunately, there's a game-changer in the form of the Outback Wrap Anaconda Wrap, a solution designed to prevent brake hose chafing and enhance the overall reliability of semi trucks.
Movement and improper brake hose length are two factors that lead to chafing. Movement is inevitable given that semi trucks constantly run up and down the highway. However, Anaconda Wrap acts as a protective shield, decreasing the likelihood of hose chafing.
One of the key features of the Outback Wrap Anaconda Wrap is its durability. Outback Wrap is polyethylene. It can withstand temperatures from -60 degrees F (-50 degrees C) to 212 degrees F (100 degrees C) and is not affected by grease, oil or dirt. You can clean it with any solvent or soap.
Installation is a breeze, no tools required, making it a practical choice for fleet managers and truck drivers. The wrap securely fastens around brake hoses, creating a protective layer that prevents friction and abrasion.
By reducing wear and tear on hoses, Anaconda Wrap minimizes the likelihood of leaks and malfunctions, ultimately enhancing the overall safety of the vehicle.
Additionally, Outback Wrap has passed Department of Transportation inspections done on trucks.
By addressing the issue of brake hose chafing, this innovative solution proves that sometimes, the smallest details can make the biggest difference on the road.
Get ready! The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s next Brake Safety Week is scheduled for Aug. 25-31, 2024.
