Reliaguard’s Cross Arm Guard is specifically produced for steel cross arms on poles. Phase to ground outages occur with equipment that is installed on these arms such as switches and cut outs. Squirrels or raccoons siting underneath these arms when they open create situations where outages may occur.

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 Cross Arm Guards.
  • Cross Arm Guards effectively enclose steel cross arms and are designed to ensure long-term retention
  • The push fasteners included with each guard provide a reliable method of protecting guards from being inadvertently opened and dislodged

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.
