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

  • Economical 
  • Industry Compatibility 
  • Lead Time Efficiency  
  • Logistical Simplicity 
First Dot

Heat Dissipation

Heat Dissipation 

Armor rods are designed for assembly to sustain maximum heat dissipation  

Formed Wire

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.
