NEWS RELEASE: TransGard partners with W.R. Daniel to cover three states

TransGard, which has installed proven animal-prevention fencing at more than 2,500 substations in North America, announced today it has reached agreement with W.R. Daniel & Associates Inc., a leading manufacturers’ representative serving clients in the transmission, distribution, substation and generation segments.

W.R. Daniel will offer TransGard’s patented substation fencing to utilities, cooperatives and other energy providers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

TransGard developed the only substation fencing that deters climbing animals by delivering a mild electric shock — a humane technique that, according to IEEE, offers the most effective barrier against animal incursion. TransGard prevents outages caused by squirrels, snakes, raccoons, cats and a range of other animals.

“With the sustained level of interest in our fences, TransGard continues to secure professional representation in states hit hard by animal-caused outages at substations,” said Bill Reichard, TransGard’s general manager. “W.R. Daniel, which has been serving the power industry since 1969, will be the ideal partner to represent TransGard in their service area.”
