Reliaguard Announces the Launch of a New Cross Arm Guard

Foothill Ranch, CA – August 30, 2017 - Building on the success of their official launch at DistribuTECH 2016, Reliaguard’s superior portfolio of wildlife mitigation products continues to expand.

The Reliaguard product line stands out as a superior product coverage for all types of distribution equipment, including voltage regulators, transformer bushings, lightning arresters, fused disconnect switches, pin insulators, cable terminations and cable suspension clamps. The newest product addition to the Reliaguard family is the Cross Arm Guard.

Reliaguard’s Cross Arm Guard is specifically produced for 3’x5’ steel cross arms on poles. Phase to ground outages occur with equipment that is installed on these arms such as switches and cut outs. Squirrels or raccoons siting underneath these arms when they open create situations where outages may occur.
