Chance Fiberglass Guy Strains

Fiberglass guy strains offer numerous advantages, including variable lengths, easy terminations, and lack of fragility. Replace johnny balls with guy strains to extend the effective insulation length. Place anywhere along the guy to help protect against stray current that may be on a guy caused by induced current from lightning strikes or other sources.

Chance strains use veiled rod instead of painted rod. This gives high ultraviolet resistance while protecting the rod from scratches that remove paint from lesser quality rods. Chance castings are crimped, not glued, onto the rod and sealed with silicon for moisture lock-out for connections. Crimping also prevents moisture penetration at the rod/casting interface thus enhancing performance and life span of the guy strain.
