Petersen quote "The only fail safe rigging insulator for wire available on the market today"

Petersen Hi-MOD backstay insulators are fitted with a cleverly designed, integral internal ball-socket in the main body as part of the fail safe mechanism.

A Petersen specific Tufnol™ spacer insulates the nut from the stainless steel body, thereby preventing any electrical transference to the insulator body or the opposite terminal.
Should the Tufnol™ be compromised for any reason, the nut will bottom out against the stainless housing, the backstay will lose tension, but the insulator will not fail.

If the backstay does loosen, the insulating studs will remain attached to the insulator body which will allow the rig to be tightened until the insulator can be repaired.

Insulators are available in a range of different combinations to suit any application - Hi-MOD swageless compression terminals, swage terminals, rod sockets - with eye, fork and toggle ends 

The insulator ‘Demis’ (halves) can be used in any combination for maximum flexibility.

Swage stud insulators can be provided with the two 'demis' not glued together allowing them to be swaged with a WireTeknik swaging machine.
A special puller is required for this operation - please contact the Jimmy Green Rigging Team for further information.
