12 X 48 Pole Cover. These pole covers are used to help protect personnelwhen raising or lowering a pole between energized lines orto cover poles when rubber glove maintenance is performed in relativelyconfined areas. The covers are made of high-dielectric linear polyethylene material that will not flash flame. This material willhave some softening without deformation at approximately 170 degrees F, and it will resist brittleness at temperatures to -50 degreesF. All Chance pole covers are ribbed to reduce cover contact with the pole, thus minimizing creosote contamination. The rope handlespermit personnel to easily spread the covers and snap themaround the pole, rubber gloves must be worn during this procedure.Prolonged contact with an energized conductor must not be allowed.
