Raptor Guard™ Wildlife Perching Deterrents for Horizontal Mount Insulators

Horizontal Post Insulators can provide a source for birds to perch in areas where prey is close by.  The distance between the high voltage conductor and a potential ground source (steel or wood poles, bonded hardware, or a ground wire) is often less than 50” apart. Our RG-VT series of deterrents are designed to prevent birds from causing outages due to phase to ground contact. The intensity of the electrical field at these higher voltages makes it uncomfortable for the bird to perch close to the phase for an extended amount of time, thereby minimizing their hunting opportunities.


  • UV resistant RPVC
  • Galvanized and stainless-steel hardware for installation included
  • Tested to withstand winds of >100 mph for sustained periods
  • Sized based on insulator length
  • Options for braced or non-braced insulators
