Hendrix Spacer Cable Systems can help reduce the amount of vegetation that must be removed when clearing right-of-way for distribution circuits. This is because Spacer Cable is more compact and can withstand temporary contact with branches without causing outages. Reducing right-of-way clearance by 20 feet can result in up to 6.5 tons of carbon dioxide being removed from the atmosphere every year per mile.

Unlike bare wire which is spread over an eight foot cross arm, a Spacer Cable circuit is confined to less than 1 foot. This reduces trimming requirements and allows multiple circuits to be placed on a single pole, or even the same side of a single pole. The result can often lead to new circuits being added to existing poles without additional vegetation removal.

Spacer Cable Systems from Hendrix are designed with a covering that limits the electrical charge on the surface. This allows temporary contact with branches without causing a failure. Birds, squirrels, and other wildlife also benefit as phase to phase or phase to ground contact will not be lethal. Mid air collisions are also rare since cable size, compact configuration and spacers make the Spacer Cable Systems visible in open space.

All Hendrix polymer components are made of 100% No.2 HDPE Recyclable Plastic as well.
