Operator safety is the first consideration when waterblasting, and Gardner Denver’s line of Safety Shrouds are designed specifically for use with hand held control guns. These safety shrouds protect the operator from dangerous hose failures occurring near the gun.
One should NEVER connect an unshrouded hose directly to a waterblasting gun. ALWAYS connect a whip hose and safety shroud to the gun first, then connect the appropriate hose to the other end of the shroud/whip hose with a quick coupling. The Safety Shroud features a nitrile outer cover which is water, oil and soil resistant. The inner material consists of high strength braided stainless steel. The 20,000 PSI shrouds also include a layer of woven Kevlar (tm) for superior strength. Each features heavy-duty couplings and multiple layers of protection that our shroud provides in this vital area so close to the operator’s body. Shroud and safety whip hoses and quick couplings, also featured on this site, are ideal in combination with these safety shrouds.
