Underground Marking & Warning Tape

Terra Tape® is a high quality underground warning tape that can prevent the dangers of digging into buried utility lines of all types. Avoid service interruptions, unnecessary loss of revenue and repair expenses that occur when a buried utility line is damaged. Terra Tape® detectable and non-detectable underground marking tapes are specified the world over to protect against accidental dig-ins and to alert workers of buried pipes and cables.

Terra Tape® is installed directly above the utility and warns those digging to stop. Terra Tape® also identifies the type of buried utility line that is present, such as power or communication utilities.
