Signaltape® XT with Kevlar® is a simple and inexpensive solution to address the two significant shortcomings of existing damage prevention systems, by providing a direct warning to the equipment operator without requiring any additional compliance. This is due to the inclusion of a 3,000 lbf tensile strength Kevlar® core material which ensures Signaltape XT pulls to the surface directly alerting equipment operator, where traditional marker tapes shear underground without providing any warning.
Signaltape® Professional Grade was specifically designed to combat bucket shear when disturbed by excavation equipment. This is due to the inclusion of a 1,250 lbf tensile strength polyester fiber core material that ensures Signaltape® PG doesn't shear on both sides when struck by excavation equipment, where traditional marker tapes shears underground without providing an adequate visual warning.
