Many different designs of tower exist for 132kV lines with standardisation becoming more focused in recent years. Not withstanding this fact, Anti-Climbing Devices (ACD’s) for replacement and new build now comply with EA Technical Specification 43/90.
Overhead Line Fittings (UK) Limited offer products fully compliant with this specification and designed to accommodate varying leg angle sizes. The corner gates are now normally supplied pre-wired. This ensures consistently neat wrapping and is the first step in accomplishing effective tower protection. The ACD’s are normally supplied in tower sets of four corner gates with two opening and two non-opening with the Spacer Bars being ordered separately depending on numbers required per tower.
