TransGard manufactures and installs the only substation fencing that delivers a humane—but effective—electric shock that deters climbing animals, an approach the IEEE calls the most effective barrier against animal incursion.
It works so well that power providers have chosen TransGard fences to protect more than 3,000 North American substations. Here are the unique features that provide exceptional results – and years of uninterrupted performance:
Easy installation A crew of three can complete a TransGard enclosure in just four hours with basic tools — no special training, no heavy equipment.
No power interruption Installation of the TransGard fence requires zero downtime — your substation stays online during installation.
Freestanding system Installs on the ground using specially designed circular stand bases without the need for postholes, foundation or concrete.
Engineered entryway Non-electrified entry system offers smooth finish and tight clearances to prevent animal intruders
Durable materials PVC and steel construction requires no scheduled maintenance – and offers a 20-year track record of service in all weather conditions.
