(YORK, Pa.) — TransGard will exhibit components of both its patented fence system and its Laser Bird Defense at the 2021 Utility Expo. The show will run September 28-30 in Louisville, KY. TransGard is the manufacturer of industry-leading animal deterrent solutions for electrical substations.
Each year, animal intrusions at substations cost millions of dollars in repairs, lost revenue and reputation management. TransGard’s solutions help utilities prevent these incursions from happening.
TransGard’s display at Booth #A1321 will include key parts of the fencing system and the laser, along with representatives from the TransGard team with solutions for protecting substations against animal intrusion.
ABOUT THE FENCE AND LASER
The TransGard fence prevents climbing animals like squirrels, raccoons, and snakes from entering electrical substations and damaging sensitive components. The fence uses a humane, non-lethal electric shock to repel climbing animals, and use their instincts to teach them to avoid substations in the future.
Laser Bird Defense addresses the perennial problem of birds roosting, nesting, and depositing corrosive droppings in substations. Laser Bird Defense generates a beam of light which birds perceive as a physical threat, causing them to disperse to seek safety. Using this powerful technology, Laser Bird Defense discourages birds from entering and roosting in substations altogether.
“As residential and commercial development increases and animal habitats shrink, the frequency of animal-caused substation outages is only going to grow,” says TransGard president Bill Reichard. “At the Utility Expo, we’ll demonstrate how simple and cost-effective it can be to add these proven solutions to a substation.”
