Mitigating Animal Activity in Electric Utility Substations – The average age of substation perimeter fences in the United States is currently 40 years old. Coupled with the fact that existing substation fences, by design, do little to nothing to prevent animals from gaining access it becomes clear that it is time to change the way Electric Utilities view the substation fence.
VANQUISH’s PATENT PENDING Animal Deterrent System prevents small crawling animals from digging under the fence line, penetrating through the fabric, manipulating corners, and most of all from climbing over the top. It’s time to upgrade aging infrastructure with a proven front line defense that inhibits snakes, raccoons, squirrels, and other small crawling animals from gaining access.
VANQUISH offers a “One-Fence” solution to animal mitigation at the substation and eliminates the need to double fence. Our product is a permanent component of the substation with the same life expectancy as a standard chain-link fence and it requires no ongoing maintenance. Just install it and forget it. The fence does not have to be removed to perform maintenance to the station equipment it protects.
VANQUISH’s Animal Deterrent System creates an environment that is safe and secure for your equipment and intimidating to animals and intruders while adding to the overall appearance and protection of the substation. Contact VANQUISH Fencing or one of our Sales Reps today to discuss the benefits of our proven system. Our product can pay for itself with one prevented outage.
