The PREFORMEDTM BIRD-FLIGHT Diverter is designed to make overhaed lines visible to birds and provides an economic means of reducing the hazard to both lines and birds. For low and medium voltage construction it is applied to the phase conductors. For high voltage lines it is used on the earthwire.
The fitting is ligtweight, offers little wind resistance and is easily and quickly applied. The positive grip of the fitting on the conductor ensures it remains in the applied position and cannot move along the span under aeolian vinration.
The diverter section increases the visible profile of the cable or conductor to a degree necessary to ensure safety, but avoids an undesirably bulky outline.
Spacing distances are not critical and will depend upon local conditions. Since wind resistance is very limited, sufficient fittings can be used to ensure adequate visibility without creating stress on the line. When marking the adjacent spans, overall visibility is improved by staggering the application.
PREFORMEDTM Bird Flight Diverters are manufactured from rigid solid high impact polyvinyl chloride possessing excellent chemical and strenth properties, which will also retain good physical charcteristics within a range of extreme temperatures.
Outdoor aging tests indicate that the material does not deteriorate in function or appearance from the effects of sever weather or pollution.
PREFORMEDTM Bird Flight Diverters are supplied right hand lay for both right and left hand lay bare conductors and jacketed cables.
