This special fence has been installed to prevent raccoons, skunks, rats, etc. from accessing private electrical substations or private property. Animals are unable to climb over or dig through these secured areas as they are protected by this heavy duty material.

digging In the different states in which we work, there are problems with rodents gaining access to electrical substations, gas, and oil plants. Here we are utilizing a backhoe to install a concrete driveway. This is necessary at the entrance point to establish a blockade to prevent rodents from entering this electrical substation.

as Here is a look at the finished concrete driveway at the entrance gate where the rats and raccoons had been entering. They typically were going through or up and over the existing chain link fence, gaining access to the electrical substation where they frequently shorted out the transformers causing a loss of revenue to the electrical utility company and their customer, which is an oil and gas product supplier. These companies were losing approximately $30,000 a day for each transformer blown.
We are installing an underground rodent fence which will block out skunks, rats, raccoons, and snakes. The fence is installed underground to prevent ground burrowing rodents from access. Notice how the trench has been dug deep into the ground allowing the subgrade fence to be installed.
The rodent slick fence that we are installing requires heavy exterior treated two-by-four or two-by-six frames. In our experience with preventing rodent damage, this style of framing is the best available attachment system for the rodent slick fence material.

Rats, raccoons, and squirrels were climbing the telephone poles. They accessed the electrical boxes and chewed on electrical wires inside the breaker boxes. They were also nesting in the boxes. As they climbed the poles, they accessed the substation by scaling the high wire system to the transformers.
Here we have installed a rodent slick sheet blockade on this particular telephone pole. Now the animals cannot climb to the electrical boxes or access the high wires to the transformer systems. We have had excellent success with all burrowing and climbing rodents in preventing them from gaining access to very expensive electrical substations.
In this photo, you can see how the slick fence has been installed and attached to the chain link fence, preventing any animals or rodents from climbing or gaining access to the station. Note the different color of material at the gate hinge points. This product is a flexible slick fence used for gate openings and hinge points. At the bottom of the photo, the material has been culved or curved, allowing the gate to open and close tightly, disallowing access by rodents.
This is a gate detail of where the gate, concrete, and slick fence meet.
This is a five gallon container of rodent poison. It is refillable with a multi-feed rat poison, controlling the incoming animals for up to ninety days.
Here we see the completed installation of a rodent slick fence. We realize that it looks a little unique compared to most chain link fence barriers. This substation is in a remote area and visual aesthetics are not necessarily the most important requirement.
The reason why this professional rodent fence was installed was to prevent the loss of revenue to the utility company.
