Electro Tape’s line of underground non-detectable tapes are a thick 4 mil heavy metal free polyethylene material. Our tapes are designed to meet the strictest of industry standards. Available in 3″ and 6″ widths.

Used in utility construction, turn & irrigation, CATV, pipeline and mechanical contractors. Tape is buried 4″ to 6″ below the surface. When digging begins, the tape is dug up first to signal that some type of line is buried below. The tape prevents damage to the line and/or persons digging.
