BIRD CAPS Bushing silicon protections

Fitting to Zamber types: BHW – C – S

For outdoor installation

Designed for easy installation and maintenance activity

High voltage devices failures are often caused by accidental contact by animals. Vermin, rodents, cats, birds, etc. use the bushings as a resting place or a landing site.

Zamber bird cap is a solution to this problem increasing the insulation sufficiently to avoid the risk of flashover or short-circuiting.

The bird cap is designed to fit Zamber standard bushings BHWS-Types, C-Types and S-Types.
It can be easily mounted and dismounted on bushings after the connecting wire has been secured.
The bird cap can operate in extreme climatic conditions, pollution levels and temperatures.
