Guy Strain Insulators – Preformed Line Products INSULIGN

Guy strain insulators, a common piece of electrical equipment, protect against any stray current on the guy strand. These insulators are meant to be installed under tension to electrically isolate down & pole to pole guy strands.

For many years technicians accomplished this by using a small porcelain insulator called a johnny ball. But, unfortunately, the porcelain johnny ba­ll had limitations, such as its size and tendency to become brittle eventually and fracture. So now, this job is commonly accomplished by using a fiberglass guy strain insulator, such as the INSULIGN from Preformed Line Products.

Compared to porcelain strain-type insulators, PLP’s fiber glass guy strain insulators provide a greater insulative distance, minimizing dry and wet flashover potential and severity. In addition, fiberglass guy strain insulators provide a more durable solution compared to conventional porcelain insulators.

INSULIGN Guy Strain Insulators utilize a proprietary veiled fiberglass rod that allows superior performance when exposed to UV conditions. They are available in load ratings ranging from 16K-36K lbs. and varying lengths ranging from 12” – 144” inches. They also feature seven different crimped fitting combinations, ensuring consistent high-performance holding strength configured to work for a wide range of applications.
