DOT Underground Wire Detectable Tape

The DOT Underground Wire Detectable Tape is a plastic warning tape with a twin stainless steel tracer wire system designed to mark, locate and help protect underground utility lines. The two wires are laminated within the tape in a continuous ‘wave’ pattern that allows them to stretch by over 25%, which helps compensate for underground movement.

The DOT-UWDT is self-coloured and overprinted with a warning message and a ‘scratch-resistant’ layer of transparent plastic which covers the printing. The tape serves the dual purpose of allowing location from above ground as well as providing a visual warning to prevent third party damage.

DOT Underground Wire Detectable Tape features & benefits:
  • Two tracer wires rather than a single tracer – double the detection ability
  • Wavy wires - allows the wires to stretch by 25% - helps compensate for underground movement
  • Easy to join - no tapes, staples, scratching off insulation etc – electrical continuity is maintained by simply twisting the wires together. A more secure method is to use the DOT-UWDT-CT Crimping Tool and DOT-UWDT-JC100 Joining Crimps.
  • Scratch proof surface – maintains the legibility of the printing warning message
  • PVC Free
