Be the first to review this product

The Varmint Shield is the proactive approach to eliminating unscheduled power outages due to animals. The unique design permits the unit to be installed quickly with a shotgun stick without the need to drop service or expose the lineman to energized equipment for installation. The Varmint Shield prevents critters from simultaneously touching the primary and metal case of the transformer.

Installs with a Shotgun Stick

The Varmint Shield is molded from a UV stabilized and flame retardant polymer to provide many years of maintenance free in field service. The unique design will not trap or accumulate fallen leaves and has no spring components to break off, especially during cold weather installations. The Varmint Shield will handle all distribution system applications and can simultaneously address both high voltage bushing and adjacent arrestor bushing. Molded in diameter lines provide an accurate and easy cutting for in-field installation on bushing diameters ranging from 1.75” est through 6” est.

  • Product dimensions: 16” / 20” diameter x .5“ thickness
  • Product weight: 14 oz. / 1.3 lbs.

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
