Hendrix stepped up in a big way
“Avangrid-CMP had a large weeklong storm impacting 75% of our customers. As we needed immediate assistance on insulators, Hendrix stepped up in a big way over the weekend. When no shipping Companies were available, Hendrix rented a U-Haul and had two employees drive 4+ hours each way to deliver in under 24hours on the weekend of Christmas. Really appreciate the effort and support of Hendrix in our Storm Restoration!”

“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.”
Hendrix Molded Products Outperform Porcelain
Exceed ANSI Standards by as much as 30%
Molded from a proprietary blend of gray, track resistant, high density polyethylene, they are ideal for use with all types of construction using either bare wire or covered conductors.
- Greater leakage distance
- High flashover and impulse values
- Vandal resistant
- Won’t chip, crack or break
“When we used the porcelain post insulator on a single-phase line, that was on a steel pole, we had to insulate between the post insulator and the pole (could not mount the post insulator/pole top bracket directly to the steel pole). With the ratings the Hendrix insulator has, we will now be able to eliminate the insulation between the two and frame for single phase steel, just as we would for single-phase wood.”
Every Install Is Unique, So We We Offer Many Products To Suite Your Needs
Hendrix offers specialty insulators to meet our customer’s unique needs and applications. These utilize special blends of HDPE developed by Hendrix. Specialty insulator categories include high temperature, flame retardant, special sized spool insulators, cable restraint Insulators, and white insulators.
Hendrix also offers products for specific applications such as cable restraints, phase spacing, vise top inserts for conductor stringing, and a cable spreading tool.
Hendrix offers additional products to help your job go as efficiently as possible, including a cable spreader, cable spreader tool, and vertical secondary spacer & service bails.
Hendrix designed flame retardant raptor guards for use on pin and vise type insulators. Lineduc, perch preventers, and bushing guards are also offered to prevent wildlife interaction with energized conductors.
