Both three-phase and single-phase regulators have reduced clearances because of their characteristic design and how they are commonly configured. These nominal clearances create a high risk for bird and animal contact. The high cost of replacing a regulator is another reason why it is crucial to protect such an important system asset.

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 Retro Kit guards.
  • Retro Kit Guards effectively enclose bushing connections and are designed to ensure long-term retention.
  • The push fastener included with each cover provides an optional method of safeguarding covers 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.
