Safety equipment: Reliaguard® announces the availability of a new fused disconnect switch cover that provides superior protection from animal contact on the powerline. Fused Disconnects or Cut-Out Switches are often configured in close proximity to each other and may result in phase to phase or phase to ground animal contacts. These switches are a very common piece of equipment where outages occur. When utilities are making selections for mitigation covers, switches should be a priority.

Designed to ensure a better fit, Reliaguard Switch Covers are available for SNC, Chance and Cooper Switches. Covers for additional equipment types required for volume orders will be designed by Reliaguard as requested by customers. Reliaguard Switch Covers are designed to ensure superior retention as not to be dislodged by weather, vibration or animals.
