Substation Cover-Up - Switch Jaw Guard & Barrier

Switch Jaw Guards

Switch Jaw Guards insulate the energized upper switch jaw and insulator when work is being done on the switch blade, lower insulator or other de-energized equipment ahead of the open switch. These guards easily slide over the upper insulator on open substation switches and lock over the bus. Jaw Guards are made from Type I UV resistant plastic. This guard has a voltage rating of 26.4 kV*.

Switch Jaw Cover

The 24219 Switch Jaw Cover provides an insulated barrier to the energized upper switch jaw and insulator, when work is being done on the switch blade, lower insulator, or other de-energized equipment ahead of the open switch. This guard slides easily over the upper insulator on open substation neutral disconnect cabinet switches and locks over the bus. The 24219 Cover is made from Type I cold weather high impact plastic. This guard has a voltage rating of 14.6 kV*.

Terminal Sleeve Disconnect Switch

The T1, Terminal Sleeve Disconnect Switch is used on open style disconnects and made from Type II SALCOR®, EPDM rubber.

Switch Barrier

Switch Barriers slide between the last two skirts on the post or pin cap insulators of the substation disconnect switch. This locks the barrier in place. When switches are mounted back to back and work is needed on one, the barrier can be placed on the energized switch to form a visible, electrical and mechanical barrier. Work can then be done on the opposite switch or other de-energized equipment. This guard has a voltage rating of 36.6 kV*.
