FUSED DISCONNECT SWITCH GUARD (CO-10005)
Cut-out switches are often configured in close proximity to each other and may result in phase to phase or phase to ground contacts by wildlife. Contact with cut-outs are a common cause of power outages. Fused Disconnect Switch Guards protect endangered species, birds, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, and other wildlife from contact with energized risk points.
Better by Design
- Based on the 100 years of collective knowledge of the Reliaguard linemen who specialize in wildlife mitigation, designs consider all risk points. A team of CAD designers support linemen to incorporate features unique to Reliaguard Switch Guards.
- Switch guards are designed to accommodate various conductor diameters providing superior coverage of the energized connection point and to ensure the Switch Guards stay where they are installed.
- Switch Guards fit both porcelain and polymer cut-outs
- All Reliaguard products are made from Reliatanium, a proprietary material designed by Reliaguard’s chemical engineering founders.
- Reliatanium achieves a V-0 flammability classification, the highest rating for the UL 94 test standard and has a 15+ year lifespan.
