ZEROflame® delivers protective solutions for
wildlife conservation goals and avian protection plans.
Wildlife uses utility poles / equipment for hunting, resting, nesting and shading from various weather conditions.
Utility right-of-ways frequently receive heavy wildlife use because they provide habitat, perches and/or provide abundant prey/food availability.
Most electrocutions occur on poles with transformers or other equipment due to limited separations between energized and grounded parts.
Fortunately, there are relatively low cost options to retrofit existing equipment with insulating protective covers.
