Underground Warning Tape (Telephone Cable) – Cable Warning Tape 150mm x 365m – CAUTION TELEPHONE CABLE
Text reads: CAUTION TELEPHONE CABLE BELOW
Fibre optic ducting is tough – but no matter how tough the product is, it’s always better to avoid striking telephone cable ducting in the first place.
This is where underground warning tape comes into play. Marker tape does exactly what it says – provides an underground warning for people who are digging – alerting them to the presence of a telephone cable duct below.
Which colour underground warning tape should you choose?
The cable warning tape you choose should be based on the colour of the ducting it’s alerting people to. CCTV, cable TV, and telephone cable ducting is green, so it’s important to use the appropriate green underground warning tape. It will also carry text – in this case, the product says “Caution Telephone Cable”.
How should telephone cable underground warning markers be used?
To understand how telephone cable underground warning tape should be used, it’s important to first understand how a CCTV twin wall cable ducting should be laid.
Ducting should always be buried at a depth of no less than 450mm – always sticking to the most obvious path. This could mean alignment with a footpath or running in line with a wall or feature.
With the ducting in it’s natural place, the cable warning tape can be laid over the top – but this time, it should be placed just 150mm below surface level. This gives a person digging adequate warning that there’s ducting underneath – and, if if the cable warning tape is broken, gives enough space to ensure hand tools don’t reach deep enough to damage the duct.
