TransGard makes the leading animal-deterrent fencing for electrical substations. Watch this video for details on how it works—and why 3,000 North American substations choose TransGard.

At a Glance: Ease of installation

As we’ve noted above, one of the biggest assets of a TransGard fence is how quickly it can be installed. A team of just 2-3 people can place a fence around a substation in less than a day, without the need for specialized equipment, and without having to power down the substation.
