Fire Mitigation Solutions

Ensure complete visibility and control over your utility district with our suite of passive fire protection, wildlife mitigation, and grid monitoring tools.

Passive Fire Protection

Passive Fire Protection

Our Fire Protection Coating (FPC) is a latex intumescent coating formulated to preserve the structural integrity of wooden utility poles during fires. When poles are coated with FPC, an intumescent char forms as a reaction to heat or fire, ultimately reducing the risk of failure.

Wildlife Mitigation

Wildlife Mitigation

Contact prevention products effectively decrease the risk of power line fires caused by animals. We offer two products for wildlife contact prevention V-0 rated and tested in compliance with IEEE 1656 (specified for testing flammability). Distribution power lines are handled by Reliaguard® wildlife covers, while Greenjacket® wildlife covers are available for substations.

Grid Monitoring Tools

Grid Monitoring Tools

Grid monitoring tools help identify transient fault current events and predict and respond to utility-related fire hazards.
Patterns in these events provide early indications of potential causes. During restoration, grid monitoring tools assist in temporary SCADA monitoring for mobile generators or temporary substations. Aclara’s grid monitoring solutions offer enhanced visibility, flexibility and mobility.
