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.
