Signaltape underground warning tape is setting a new standard for protecting, identifying and locating all types of buried utilities.
Signaltape is a proprietary, low-cost solution developed to prevent excavation damage to buried utilities by providing a visible alert to the presence of a buried utility directly to the equipment operator.
"Excavation damage is a leading cause of serious pipeline incidents that cause death, injuries and property damage."
- U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx (Jul 13, 2015)
Signaltape XT vs Premium Stretch Marker Tape
"Signaltape breathes new life into a standard industry product while tremendously enhancing excavator safety."
- Mike Parilac, President and Owner of Planet Underground
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 0Signaltape® PG doesn't shear on both sides when struck by excavation equipment, where traditional marker tapes shears underground without providing an adequate visual warning.
Signaltape® XT with Kevlar® was designed to be pulled to the surface, directly alerting the equipment operator to the existence of a buried facility. This is due to the inclusion of a 3,000 lbf tensile strength Kevlar fiber core material that ensures Signaltape does not shear until visible to equipment operator, where traditional marker tapes shear underground without providing an adequate visual warning.
The inclusion of a high tensile strength core material ensures signaltape pulls to surface directly alerting the equipment operator.
In sloppy conditions, signaltape remains more visible than traditional marker tapes due to its hydrophobic properties.
Signaltape provides the most comprehensive protection for the lowest cost.
