Reliaguard Protection Disk is a barrier used to isolate climing animals thus preventing them from making a phase to ground contact.  Protection disks are typically used on poles. Protection Disc Guards protect tree frogs, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, other wildlife from contact with energized risk points. The contact risk points are typically from a phase to ground contact.

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 our linemen to incorporate features unique to only Protection Disc Guards.
  • Protection Disc Guards are designed as a two-piece barrier. The one size fits all design is adjustable to the interior flight diameter of most insulators.

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.
