Polymer Station Posts Increase Reliability and Lineworker Safety

April 29, 2024
Station Line Post Insulators are said to be lighter and more durable than porcelain for easier and safer installs.

Porcelain insulators can crack, chip and break in transit and during installation, according to Marmon Utility.  HDPE insulators are tough, light, easy to install and compatible with bare or covered conductors.

Hendrix insulators are designed to withstand the toughest conditions since 1966. Molded from a proprietary blend of track- and UV-resistant gray high-density polyethylene, the insulators are said to be more durable and reliable than traditional porcelain, as well as lighter weight for easier and safer installs. 

The new Station Line Post Insulators are made in the United States, guaranteed for life and lighter and more durable than porcelain. 

Here are the benefits:

• Short lead time
• Easy handling - lighter than porcelain 
• HDPE prevents chips, cracks and breaks
• Resistant to impact damage, breakage and vandalism
• Available in 15 kV to 69 kV
