Brightly coloured Locata® warning tapes are used to identify underground pipes and cables

Centriforce’s Locata® underground warning tape is available in 4 different colours to help identify underground works. Applications include:

  • Electric cables
  • Water pipes
  • Optic cables
  • Sewers

Using our high-quality tape, you can highlight pipes and cables so that workers can identify them quickly and easily in future. This practice Improves safety in the workplace and helps to minimise the risk of costly mistakes.

Our tapes are non-adhesive and made from low-density polyethylene. This makes them long lasting, easy to apply and a fantastic way to safeguard the wellbeing of your workforce. Our warning tape also takes the guesswork out of any future excavations.

Plastic underground warning tape is usually installed at a specified distance directly above the service line. This makes it easier for utilities to be locate d and identified.

Please note that although our Locata® tape provides a visual warning, it does not offer any physical protection. To protect your pipes and cables during further excavations, we recommend the use of warning tape combined with either Tapetile® cable protection tape or Stokbord® cable protection tiles.
