Underground Marking Tape

Similar to cable hard cover, underground marking tape or ‘soft tape’ is used as a warning only layer over electrical of communication conduit installations. Electrical underground marking tape is orange in colour to match the conduit and the communications is white. Standard roll sizes are 150mm wide x 500m long and is manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS2648.11995 and AS/NZS 4275 Part 0 199. A detectable version that includes a trace wire or ‘magnetic strip’ running through the tape is also available that allows the tape to be detected from the grounds surface level.
