In harsh subsea environments, protection sleeves offers excellent abrasion and impact resistance as well as environmental protection to umbilical’s in locations comprising rocky seabeds, pipeline/cable crossings etc.
The cable protection system is a polyurethane split arrangement. Each section overlaps the next and is held in place by a field proven titanium strapping system. Within the overlapped section are interlocking profiles that provide axial stiffness holding each element together. This provides continuous protection over the full length of the assembly. In addition each module incorporates a radial keyed arrangement, which increases the rigidity of the system against compression.
The straps that are installed on the installation vessel require a tensioning tool that is supplied by Supergrip. Each strap can be fitted in under 10 seconds. The protection sleeves are manufactured from 85 shore A polyurethane to provide a robust, wear resistant assembly. As standard cable protection sleeves are supplied with a span length of 1m to ensure that the sleeves are easily handled offshore however bespoke lengths are produced to suit specific project requirements
