Custom Protective Coverings

Protective Coverings, a division of Suburban Manufacturing Inc. is an industry leading manufacturer of customized protective coverings for everything from cables, hoses, and wires to exhaust systems. Designed to protect operators and equipment, our products are engineered to meet the specific performance characteristics and resistance properties of your application. Constructed from the finest quality materials using our proprietary manufacturing methods, we offer protective sleeves, straps, and covers in custom configurations with a variety of options and thermal protection anywhere in the -60°F to +1800°F temperature range.

We offer an immense amount of materials from 1/32” up to 1” in thickness with specific resistances to a wide range of conditions, from extreme temperature and abrasion to lightweight handling. Our products are used in hundreds of OEM applications such as fracking, subsea mining, oil and gas drilling and tier four temperature protection. We can build products that survive outdoor use, exposure to molten metal splash, extreme temperature, and hot sparks.

Options are numerous and include a variety of attachment methods, including zippers, tethers, clamps, buckles, and more. Our patented reusable sleeve configuration features mil-spec hook & loop closure, making it easy to bundle hydraulic hoses without having to disconnect from equipment. CNC controlled equipment and automated assembly methods allow rapid, high accuracy production, and all of our products are fully inspected and tested according to our ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management system.

Our mission is to build value for our customers by producing quality-engineered, application-based protective coverings that safeguard your equipment while shielding operators from hazardous conditions.
