PLP's Bushing Covers for wildlife protection are designed to reduce the number of outages experienced on the utility’s distribution system by insulating transformer bushings, lighting arrestors, capacitors and switching equipment from incidental contact by animals. This is achieved by covering energized components sufficiently so that an animal can not contact the component and ground potential simultaneously.
- Made from a light gray, high voltage, plasticol compound that is a minimum of 100 mills thick.
