From its facility in Toronto, Canada, Firon Industries has been designing and manufacturing overhead switches since 1982.  Over that period, Firon has developed into Canada’s premiere and preferred supplier of switches and switch accessories for the high voltage electrical utility industry. 

Having developed the lightest, most durable and most advanced switches in the industry, Firon is recognized for its innovation and for its dedication to the advancement of new, superior quality products; and based on our proven track record, these products are certain to enhance the safety and simplicity of any high voltage operation.


Product Range

Ultra-light Line Tension Switch

The Firon line tension switch is ideal where line sectionalizing is required; it eliminates the need for pole mounted switches and reduces “pole clutter”. With a tested momentary of 40kA RMS (asymmetrical) and a current rating of 900 amps continuous, the switches are available in ratings from 15 thru 69 kV.

Ultra-Light Surface Mount Switch

The Firon Surface Mount Switch is ideal for branch feeder, main feeder and cross arm applications. When equipped with a Loadbuster™ hook and in conjunction with a Loadbuster™, the switch may be used for load interrupting and breaking line, cable-charging and transformer-magnetizing currents. The switch may be mounted in either the vertical or inverted positions.

Ultra-Light V-Style Switch

The Firon “V” Style Switch is ideal for a single cross arm or when electrical clearances might be compromised by the longer base of the parallel insulator type switch. This configuration inherently provides greater open gap clearance than that of the standard hookstick operated switch. Blade opening available in 90 and 180 degrees, from 15 thru 35kV.

Ultra-Light Bypass Switch

The Firon recloser by-pass switch is a safe and economical alternative to maintaining service continuity, when isolating a Recloser for repair or routine maintenance.


Ultra-Light Fused Bypass Switch

Ultra-Light In-Line Fused Switch

An open fuse cutout (fused switch) is a device that provides protection against excessive currents produced by abnormal conditions such as line faults, line or equipment overloads or equipment failures. Firon’s type “IF” in-line fused cutout provides this protection. Two voltage rated units, 15kV and 27kV are available to meet the user’s needs. These are mounted on Silicone dead end type insulators, which exceed leakage distances of porcelain type cutouts. The fuseholder of these units are interchangeable with other manufacturers.

Ultra-Light In-Line Power Fuse

The Ultra-Light In-line Power Fuse Mounting is similar in function and design to the standard “IF” fused switch. But when installed with the appropriate power fuse barrel, it will provide greater protection to distribution feeder circuits & lines than conventional switches, currently used.

Ultra-Light Line Tap Switch

The Firon Line Tap Switch is ideal for applications where space constraints make the mounting of a conventional disconnect switch difficult. This line tap switch can be used as a simple tap off a line, when mounted to the line with optional conducting stirrups, fixed by wedge connectors. This system provides a conductive path along with the support for the switch.


Ultra-Light Cluster Mount Switch

The Firon Cluster Mount Switch is a three phase hookstick operated switch, mounted on a single base. This configuration is ideal for disconnecting drops to underground cable.

Ultra-Light Power Fuse Mount

The Firon FMD20, Ultra-Light Power Fuse Mount can protect equipment and devices including transformers, capacitor banks, overhead lines and underground cables. When used with a compatible fuse unit, the FMD20 Power Fuse Mount can interrupt faults on either the primary or secondary side of a transformer with either the line-to-line or line-to ground voltage across the fuse.

Ultra-Light Double Insulator Switch

The Firon Ultra-Light Double Insulator Switch is an overhead, hook stick operated, disconnect device used to provide circuit isolation on aluminum distribution conductors. The switch is light weight and compact and the two insulator design results in a switch that can be installed without any line tensioning device or special installation tool.

3300 Deadend Clamp

Firon Aluminum Straight Line Bolted Dead End
Clamps feature swing away design cable entry
and incorporate heat treated primary grade
aluminum castings with grade five, high strength
fasteners. A favorite of linemen for dead ending
and temporary openers, Firon Dead Ends exhibit
reduced installation time, eliminate conductor
damage and increase installer safety.

Ultra-Light Double Insulator Switch

The flagship of Firon Industries is the Ultra-Light Double Insulator Switch  is an overhead, hook stick operated, disconnect device used to provide circuit isolation on aluminum distribution conductors. The switch is light weight and compact and the two insulator design results in a switch that can be installed without any line tensioning device or special installation tool. Since the switch is installed in line with the conductor, it eliminates the need for pole mounted switches resulting in decreased “pole clutter”.
