Swansea, Ill., July 8, 2010—Rauckman Utility Products has announced the availability of Cutout Covers that are the latest addition to its animal mitigation line of products. All of Rauckman's animal mitigation devices increase reliability while decreasing unplanned interruptions of service.

“All of our animal mitigation devices increase reliability while decreasing unplanned interruptions of service,” said Jim Rauckman, company president. “These cutout covers are made of material with high UV stability—including hindered amine light stabilization and additionally, their track-resistant high dielectric material remains stable even in the most severe environmental conditions.”

The Cutout Covers are available in two models, W-110 (for 15 and 25 kV with BIL rating of 95 thru 150) and W-170 (for 15, 27 and 36 kV with BIL rating of 170). Both have a UL-94 flame retardant classification of V-0 and fit major manufacturer’s porcelain and polymer type cutouts. The fasteners used for closures are UV stabilized also. Both models are easily installed with rubber gloves or shotgun sticks.
