(DEAD END) (DE-16001)

Dead ends, used extensively throughout power distribution systems, are often situated in close proximity to grounded structures. These minimal clearances can often lead to bird and animal contacts.

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 in incorporating features unique to only Reliaguard Dead End Guards.
  • Dead End guards are manufactured to allow for a wide range of conductor exit angles. Further, the exit points accommodate a wide range of conductor diameters.

Superior material

  • 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.
