The Underground Electrical Tape acts as a cautionary tool for contractors and workers who are digging in areas with buried electrical mains. The tape is positioned above these services for better visibility during excavation. Constructed from bright orange polyethylene, the tape is easily recognizable with the clear message “DANGER BURIED ELECTRICAL CABLE BELOW” printed in bold black text along its entire length. This tape meets the standards outlined in AS 2648.1:1995.
The striking orange colour of the underground warning tape aids in identifying and locating pipes and cables underground and makes it an excellent solution for securing potentially hazardous underground areas. The detectable tape features a strong stainless steel tracer wire placed between two layers, in a pattern for durability. This tape can be used in combination with cable avoidance tools to pinpoint the position of non-metallic pipes and unenergized cables.
