Armor Rods & Line Guards
Armor rods and line guards are used to protect conductors from fatigue, abrasion, Arc over and creep damage by increasing the stiffness of the conductor at support points. They are also designed to repair conductors with less than 25% damage to its aluminum strand. They are recommended for all voltage classes and can be used on major conductors as AAC, AAAC, ACSR and ACSS.
Features & Benefits
- Industry Compatibility
- Lead Time Efficiency
- Logistical Simplicity
Extra High Voltage Protection
Armor rods are designed with parrot bill ends to sustain high voltage applicationsMaterial Versatility
Material chemistry is designed to give line protection and strength while maintaining malleability for installationHeat Dissipation
Armor rods are designed for assembly to sustain maximum heat dissipation
Formed wire products are representative of MPS's progression of becoming a full-line global supplier. Formed wire provides a more consistent and cost effective way to secure or deadend conductors when compared to traditional hand ties. Formed wire products follow industry established color codes and have grit coating applied to the helix interior to ensure optimal tensile performance.
