16″ Raptor Guard™ Perching Deterrent

16″ Raptor Guard™ Wildlife Perching Deterrent for Horizontal Distribution Cross-arms

The Patented “X” shape design of the Raptor Guard perching deterrent is made to protect the entire exposed area of cross-arm. This product provides a superior barrier over the first generation of the ineffective triangle perching deterrents. As with any product, determining the correct size for your installation is critical.

When deciding on which product is best suited to your application, first determine the distance of exposed cross-arm you wish to protect and then choose the appropriate size Raptor Guard that will best protect that entire space. We also offer different attachment saddles to fit the type of cross-arm you have: (standard, dead end, angle-iron, etc.).
