SNAKESTOP

A Simple Solution for Snakes

Overview

SnakeStop (Patent Pending) is a ground-based, electrified boundary specifically engineered to prevent snake incursions at substations. It employs the same proven, patented TransGard fence panel technology that has been successful in preventing climbing animal incursions at more than 3,000 substations across the U.S.  Designed specifically for substations that experience high sustained winds and are only looking to prevent snake intrusions.

At a Glance: The Unique Solution to the Problem of Snakes

TransGard’s specially engineered substation fencing system offers significant advantages to substation operators:

Easy Installation

A crew of three can complete a 300-foot TransGard enclosure in just four hours with basic tools—no special training, no heavy equipment, and no power interruption required during installation.

Freestanding Protection

TransGard's SnakeStop installs on the ground, requiring no postholes, foundation or concrete. TransGard requires far less material, expense and time than a perimeter fence.

Modular Design

Construction using a series of panes enables a modular design providing quick maintenance access. Substations can easily reuse panels, reconfigure a SnakeStop, or add new panels to expand the system

Prevent Incursion from Snakes

Designed specifically to prevents snakes from entering the substation in areas that experience high sustained winds.

Durable Materials

Built with stainless steel, aluminum, and PVC that conforms to the UL94 V-0 flammability standard for plastics protect your assets by minimizing the spread of fire and reduce maintenance.

Removable and Adjustable

Modular panels and corners make SnakeStop easy to reconfigure, add, or remove new panels to align with substation changes.

Walkway

SnakeStop can be configured with multiple walkover points to provide safe personnel access, while not damaging the panels

Panels

SnakeStop is equipped with a two-section wire mesh panel designed to prevent snake incursion

Angle

SnakeStop can be configured with optional angles of 90 degrees, 45 degrees, and 22.5 degrees
