Protecting power distribution from unexpected interaction with wildlife.

Part of Shawcor's Connection Systems group, DSG-Canusa brand wildlife mitigation products helps to prevent electrical outages by protecting against flash-over or direct contact with bare-metal components.

Our medium voltage covers protect overhead lines, substations and switchgear against accidental interaction from local:

  • Fauna (birds or animals)
  • Flora (tree branches)
  • Weather (impact of heavy winds and lightning storms)

The product range comprises preformed covers, line covers, heat-shrinkable tubing and sheets which ensure durable protection of our customer assets and help to prevent wildlife electrocutions and mortality.

Shawcor wildlife mitigation products are easy-to-install solutions for conductors, bushings and insulators, switches and cutouts, arresters and bus bars.

Applications for Overhead Lines


The DSG-Canusa medium voltage line protection productline insulates overhead lines that are connected in transmission towers. CSUS and CAMA insulation covers are available in various designs and sizes for suspension clamps and dead-end tension joints and in combination with CMVBP medium voltage line covers offers an effective method of protection against accidental phase-to-phase or phase-to-ground contact caused by birds and animals.


Applications for Substations


The CCAPU is specially designed to cover and protect bushings and lightning arresters, standoff insulators, clamps and connections from wildlife. The cover is available in different designs and sizes to ensure a variety of different applications on energized lines. On pole-mounted transformer bushings, CCAPU helps to prevent electrical short-cuts.



The CCONEC protects clamps and branch connections on medium voltage installations. Completed by DSG-Canusa CMVBP, it insulates pole-down lines and bus bars on outdoor substations. Products are easy to install and ensure protection from flashovers caused by wildlife.
