To safeguard the substation’s infrastructure from the public, the colored plastic slats inserted in the chain-link came into use. But as prices of copper increased, the substations’ equipment and fences themselves became a target of thieves.

In order to avoid these issues, the substations shifted onto more solid and reliable utility wall options. Precast concrete utility walls are the best option is such regard.
