BIRD GUARDS FOR OVERHEAD LINES ABOUT 1kV
Birds covers for post insulators from weatherproof plastic avoid contact with live parts.
Fire-fly and fly Scare-fly
are optically acting bird spike. They used the reflection of sunlight during the day and at night fluoriszierende lighting effects. The included film reflects the sunlight during the
day. By a second film is a sparkling effect is achieved,
which is recognized by birds up to 400 meters. By the
reflection and the sparkling effect change their flight patterns and soft birds from the protected
According to a study from Cornell University, Ithaca (New York, USA) take birds perceive light in two spectra: daylight and ultraviolet light. The Fire-fly and the Scare-fly used both spectra (360nm and 560nm wavelength).
Unlike the fire-fly of the Scare-fly is round. In the center of the disc has a special reflective tape is red / yellow applied. The Fire-fly should be implemented when needed and at the onset of habituation. A guarantee for the function can not be assumed.
Larger birds like to sit on power lines
and cause short circuits when they touch the live parts. In
order to prevent short circuits and the inevitable death of the
birds in the Triangle Model VT has been
The triangle is made of hard plastic and is therefore suitable for use on power lines.
