LINE GUARDS

Our Polyethylene Line Guards are utilised by Utilities and Electrical Contractors and are designed to provide temporary electrical insulation and/or mechanical protection and/or visual warning of Power Lines and Wires. These robust units have decades of engineering and development to ensure the highest quality and safety standards. The Guard is typically a plastic split tube design to allow straight forward installation over conductors and wires in the field. Depending on the type of product, they may also interlock (male and female) to extend a continuous length along the wire.

Lion Tails™ are a high quality and dependable product. Utilised by Lineman during Pole Settting, or other maintenance activities, or installed on wires that approximate construction sites to provide additional protection. They come in several options including Class 2 14.6Kv, or Class 3 26Kv.

Tiger Tails™ have become an industry standard and are a trusted name in Power Line safety.

Tiger Tails™ are certified to both AS 4202 and ASTM F712. This includes a voltage rating of 650v for AS 4202 Class I and up to 14.6 Kv for ASTM F712 Class 2.
