Utility poles: Class 5 Air Gap Pole Guard product line

Utility poles Class 5 Air Gap Pole Guard

Transmission poles are safer with reintroduced Class 5 Air Gap® Pole Guard Family. This new and improved offering allows us to enhance our pole guard line to now accommodate class 5 field requirements to help fulfill your company’s safety needs. Pole guard covers are used to protect workers from accidental contact with a bare conductor when setting or removing poles in an energized work area. They can also be used to cover poles when performing energized maintenance in an insulated bucket, pole platform, or hot sticking.

Each Salisbury pole guard is made from orange, Type I ABS cold weather, high-impact thermoplastic. The Air Gap design includes uniformly spaced dimples that minimize the amount of surface area contacting the pole. It also provides added insulation to keep electrical leakage to a minimum. This design helps minimize condensation and contamination buildup.

When two air gap guards are used to cover longer lengths, the guard dimples nest together, locking the two pole guards together with ample overlap.
