Horizontal Post Insulators can provide a source for birds to perch in areas where prey can be found 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 times less than 50” apart. Our RG-VT series of deterrents are designed to prevent birds from causing outages due to phase to ground contact. Due to the intensity of the electrical field at these higher voltages, it is also uncomfortable for the bird to perch close to phase for an extended amount of time thereby minimizing their hunting opportunities.
