Critter guard bending tool

22 Mar 2022

The Animal Guard Bender by Slick Tools is a customizable tool used to bend critter guard into rigid C channels. The added structural integrity of the bent mesh facilitates the installation process, while increasing the load capacity of the mesh to withstand snow and critters. The bend angle of the mesh can be adjusted individually, ranging from 45 ° to 90 °. The width of the bend can be set from 3.5'' to 6.5'', depending on the roof-to-array gap. The recessed critter guard creates a seamless transition between the solar panel and roof. The Bender is compatible with PVC and powder coated wire meshes and can be adjusted to fit mesh rolls of various sizes.
