WAVELAY® detectable tape

WAVELAY® Detectable Tracer Tape is an underground warning tape incorporating a 0.7mm tracer wire laid in a sinusoidal wave pattern, laminated between two layers of low-density, lead-free, virgin grade, rot-resistant polyethylene. The WAVELAY® wire pattern allows enhanced detectability and stretch to over 25% before breaking.

The top print guard layer protects the warning message and locks in the tracer wire.

Standard-size rolls are 100mm x 250m.

WAVELAY® can be supplied in custom prints and colours and on cable drums up to 3km long.

DIGSAFE™ Termite Resistant Tracer Wire is laid over non-metal pipes to facilitate their detection by standard locating equipment (see page 12). DIGSAFE™ Tracer wire should be laid on the pipe, in conjunction with a warning tape or mesh 300mm below the ground surface. The locator will directly connect to the wire at an access pit passing an electric current through the wire, enhancing its accurate detection via an inductive location instrument on the surface. The nylon12 termite-resistant sheath surrounding the wire, inhibits the destruction of the waterproof jacket by termites, prolonging the effective life of the tracer wire.
