InfraBuild Construction Solutions HANDIMESH helps to protect native animals

Animals like possums are prone to climbing power line transmission towers with fatal repercussions if they come into contact with live wires.

When John Holland Constructions secured a contract to install power line transmission towers along a 12km area stretching from Belmont to Murarrie, near Brisbane, Queensland, the company discussed the options for fauna protection with Infrabuild Construction Solutions (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing). The result was the development of a new galvanized steel mesh system, specifically designed to prevent native animals for climbing power line transmission towers.
