Why does Reliaguard have mesh and solid guard designs?

We have both options to suit customers’ preferences. 

The mesh design allows for a direct read when conducting infrared hotspot detection (limitations such as geometric condition will affect the accuracy of readings). The open design also permits rain to wash off the insulator below. It is often preferred when a visual inspection of bolted connections is required. 

The solid or unperforated design provides better protection by completely isolating energized components. Fully enclosed components are also less prone to colonization, hoarding, and nesting attempts.
