Furrion LLC, a new company selling electrical wiring, cables and related components, has introduced a portable ramp designed to protect shore power and data cables.

“It is the only ramp that we know of that stores in its own compact storage bag and can be assembled/disassembled in seconds, yet still withstand 2-1/2 tons,” says Furrion vice president Mark Curry.

The product houses a 2-foot-long section of cable up to 1-3/4 inches in diameter. Two 200-amp cables fit easily. The ramp also can help prevent tripping over cables, says Curry. “We have had international interest in the product, especially for the bigger boats and safety-conscious boatyards,” he says. Two reflective warning signals are located on the top of the ramp, which is covered with a non-skid surface for maximum grip. The ramp features a quick-connect system for joining multiple ramps. It also has reflecting surface symbols for night visibility and rubber feet for added traction and stability. It can also be permanently mounted. While the retail price will vary slightly by location, the MSRP is $189.95. Furrion backs the ramp with a 2-year warranty. Contact: Furrion, Beaverton, Ore., (888) 354-5792, www.furrion.com.
