Glas Mesh Type #120 Spacers

Description

Type #120 Spacers from Glas Mesh

Glas Mesh 180 Saddle

An extremely strong, 120°, non-conductive fiberglass reinforced plastic insulation spacer.

  • Used by utilities to prevent and/or correct electrical shorts caused when buried steel mains contact each other or are in close proximity.
  • The 120° peripheral circumference minimizes any possible shielding effect on the pipes’ cathodic protection systems.
  • For most applications FRP Spacers offer superior physical properties over other plastics and rubber such as PVC and polyethylene.
  • The superior compressive strength of FRP over other non-conductive materials is necessary due to the point loading nature of contact shorts.
  • FRP spacers will not cold flow, will not become brittle in cold temperatures and will not soften or distort from heat.
