Bucket Barricade for Linemen Provides Added Protection


Hastings, a manufacturer of hotline tools and equipment, announces a new lineman innovation, the Bucket Barricade. This patented product gives linemen added protection when working on high voltage connections.

Bucket Barricade is designed to fit inside the lift bucket and gives added face and body protection against sudden releases of energy that can occur during an electrical flash. Unlike face shields—which can fog up and obstruct visibility, creating a potential hazard—the patented design of the Bucket Barricade allows airflow and guards the face and body with one solid sheet of clear, high dielectric impact resistant material.

This new product does more than shield from electrical arc and arc flashes. Bucket Barricade also protects against wind and weather conditions and transformer oil spray.

Features include:
• Built-in tool board,
• Accommodates any bucket size,
• Available in two width sizes of 18 and 23 inches,
• Adjusts to four different heights with one-hand deployment, and
• Easy to stow design.
