Save with Gates safety!

A higher standard in safety with the Gates’ Safe Hydraulics training programme
Never underestimate the power of a hydraulic hose assembly under pressure. Just having the Gates high-quality hoses and couplings is not enough to ensure the safety of your hydraulic hose assemblies. Choosing wrong components, improper assembly, installation or even storage can compromise performance and even human safety.

What makes your system really stand out?

All the components of a hose assembly have to work together. That rarely happens when parts are sourced from multiple vendors.

Mixing and matching couplings and hoses from different manufacturers can lead to premature assembly failure.

Hoses, couplings, assembly equipment and crimping tolerances from different vendors are never guaranteed to offer safe interchangeability.

Improper assembly and installation is bound to compromise performance and human safety. If a hydraulic hose assembly fails, the assembler can be held accountable for damages, as stated by European legislation (98/37/CE - EN 982).
