Why would I need electricity cable protection (shrouding)?
Shrouding or electricity cable protection is used to protect our overhead cables so that you can safely carry out work on your property if our overhead electricity cables are in the way.
In some cases we may not be able to install overhead electricity cable protection (shrouding), but our teams will work with you to find the safest solution to carry out your work.
This is free of charge and our engineers can install and remove this for you when needed.
Before you apply, you will need:
Where is the electricity cable you need a safety sleeve attached to? We need this so we can plan how to get to the electricity cable.
Please provide a photo if you can.
By sending us an image of the overhead electricity cables this will allow our teams to see what type of cable it is and what type of safety sleeve is needed.
Customers who provide a photo have their applications processed quicker!
Do you have an idea of the length of cable that you would like covered? We need this so we know how much safety sleeve is needed.
Please provide us with a date you would like us to place the electricity cable protection on our overhead lines.
We will try to book your appointment as close to this date as we can.
Please let us know if you have a locked gate or anything that would stop us from being able to fit the electricity cable protection.
Depending on what is required, some of our equipment may require extra space to access our overhead electricity lines. Is there vehicle access near to the electricity cable?
