Marker posts and blocks are an excellent way to provide clear and long-lasting identification for utility services lines and junctions.
Utility services such as electric cables, gas & water pipes are obviously an essential part of modern life; so too are access points to the services lines. But access in itself is not enough, the services and their access points must be clearly marked with appropriate and durable marker posts or blocks. These utilities are often potentially dangerous, as with gas pipes or high voltage cables, or they have a potential for being easily damaged in a way that would involve costly repair works as with water lines, and those who are tasked with accessing these services for repairs and maintenance need to be fully aware of which services are under any given access point.
Durability is key here. The marker posts must be made of a durable material and able to withstand the rigors of our weather – especially so if demarcating electric cables at a wind farm in the Scottish Highlands for example – and the occasional knock from an over-enthusiastic service engineer. Elite Precast Concrete manufacture a range of Marker Posts in durable steel-reinforced precast concrete, with and without marker plate recesses. In addition to our range of indicator posts we also supply Marker Blocks and Slabs, stamped as appropriate to indicate the relevant services underneath.
