Tiger Tails – insulating covers with a red and black pattern. Also referred to as Torapoli Pipes.
The manufacturer tests and labels Tiger Tails to comply to AS4202 as a Class 1 Cover for use up to a working voltage of 650 volts.
The Red and Black Tiger Tail come in two different lengths, both with the same internal diameter of 35mm:
- 1.25m length (Balmoral Engineering part number DB35ARB125)
- 2.5m length (Balmoral Engineering part number DB35ARB)
Tigertails have a unique red and black striped pattern.
Each length has a male and a female end, allowing you to interlock them and create a continuous length.
Eyelets in each bell housing allow you to cable tie them together for extra security. You can easily remove and reuse them in another location afterwards.
Applications of Tiger Tails
Tiger Tails are robust, highly visible cable covers that provide a visual warning to all people working near live overhead powerlines.
They do not reduce safe approach distances or allow you to work closer to power lines. Their purpose is to provide temporary electrical insulation and/or mechanical protection.
They can also be used in many non-electrical applications, including:
- Overhead telecommunication lines
- Fence markers
- Boat oar protectors
Please note that tiger tails cannot be shipped due to their length. You can order for click ‘n collect (local pick-up) at our Prestons branch.
