Wildlife Protection

Hendrix Molded Products introduces the new HRS-67 Raptor Shield, a lightweight and simple way to protect wildlife from live-line contact as well as to reduce power outages.

The new HRS-67 helps utilities implement their avian protection plan and complies with the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act, Golden & Bald Eagle Protection Act and the Endangered Species Act.

The HRS-67 Raptor Shield can be installed on pin-type insulators rated up to 35 kV and on conductors ranging from #6 through 795 ACSR. It is equipped with internal clips to support and provide stability when the shield is mounted over porcelain or polyethylene ANSI class pin insulators and can withstand wind speeds up to 150 mph. The shield also includes retainer pins for added security and uplift drafts.

The HRS-67 is designed to allow installation on energized power lines up to 35 kV with live-line rubber gloves or hot sticks. The material is flexible enough to accommodate line angles up to 20 degrees.
