Hendrix Vise Top Insulators
Dependable Performance and Delivery
Optimize Your Time and Safety While Avoiding Hidden Costs
Since 1965, Hendrix has been the innovator of HDPE distribution insulators. installed on all 7 continents, Our products have proven themselves repeatedly in the toughest conditions around the world.
Reduce Inventory & Prevent Project Delays
Eliminate ties and the need to carry significant stock thanks to our short lead times and consistent on-time-delivery. Our insulators are proudly made in the USA in Amherst, NH and have a 2-4 week lead time.
Minimize Scrap & Damaged Material
Vise Top insulators won’t chip, crack or break, are vandal resistant, and are even ballistics proof. They are also reusable and recyclable.
Increase Installation Efficiency
Our Vise Top insert design allows it to be used with covered and bare conductor. It’s clamping mechanism with shear bolts reduces installation time by more than half.
Increase Installation Safety & Reliability
Eliminates body injuries due to being 30-40% lighter-weight. Our proprietary compound formulation provides greater track resistance, and we offer optional flame retardant or high temperature material.
Vise Tops Significantly Increase System Reliability
Our HDPE Insulators exceed ANSI mechanical and electrical requirements and offer many advantages over traditional porcelain
Guaranteed for life
- Higher Puncture Strength
- Longer Leakage Distance
- Higher Impulse Strength
- Better Hydrophobicity
- Ultraviolet Resistant
- Greater Track Resistance
- RUS Approved
One of the main reasons for a switch from porcelain was the cost savings related to installation. The crews would not have to hand tie the porcelain pin insulators.”
The Safest, Quickest, And Easiest Insulator To Install
Vise Tops are extremely user friendly and save utilities valuable time and money
- Direct interchangeability with porcelain
- Accepts bare or covered conductor
- Eliminates the need for ties
- Reusable and Recyclable
- Flame Retardant and High Temperature versions available
High density polyethylene is lightweight; one person can easily install the insulator. That’s less costly, takes less time, and there’s much lower risk of back injury for our workers.”
Polymer Insulators Are Replacing their Porcelain Counterparts
