Locata ® Underground Warning Tapes

Our Locata® Warning Tape is a non-adhesive film which is printed with a warning message and comes in a variety of bright colours to aid the discovery of underground utilities such as electric cables, gas and water pipes.

Commonly specified by Electricity Distribution Network Operators, Locata® Warning Tape is fully compliant with ENA TS 12-23 and EN12613 standards. You can therefore buy Locata® Warning Tape with confidence knowing that you are buying a product which is widely used and trusted within the industry.

Centriforce generally recommends that Locata® Warning Tape is installed a specified distance above the underground utilities that you are looking to protect so as to provide workers with as early a visual warning as possible.

Locata® Warning Tape is commonly teamed up with our Stokbord Cable Cover and Tapetile utility protection rolls to add further protection for underground cables and pipes by introducing a mechanical barrier above the utilities. This helps to significantly reduce the chance of damage on account of accidental impacts.

Detectable Also Available

Centriforce also offers a detectable version of Locata® Warning Tape which features a laminated steel tracer wire so that it can easily be detected from above the surface with the use of most common cable protection tools.
