When it comes to Tiger Tails, they are named after what they look like, a tiger’s tail. Tiger Tails are striped black and yellow high grade HDPE split synthetic tubes with unique high visibility stripe patterns installed over powerlines to protect workers such as roof tillers, scaffolders, crane operations and builders from any accidental contact with live power lines by providing a visible indication of where these powerlines are.
The tails feature an eyelet in bell housing, interlocking male to female, and can be joined keeping constant cover for as long as you require. Some of the other important features include:
– Industry Standard Complies with & marked to AS4202 Class 1
– Maximum use 650V
– High Visibility
– High Electrical Insulation
– Resistant to many chemicals
– Mechanically interlocks
Tiger tails, provide temporary electrical insulation, mechanical protection and visual warning of power lines and conductors. Used by utilities and electrical contractors, these robust units have decades of engineering and development to ensure the highest quality and safety standards.
However, tiger tails only offer a temporary solution and its core purpose is to visually warn people to be careful around power lines.
Although you’re thinking tiger tails are tested and rated at 650V insulation so why is thins the case, by law they cannot be used as a method of insulating cables and can only be used as a visual warning.
