Plastic Cable Protection Covers & Buried Electrical Cable Tiles

Plastic Cable Protection Covers & Buried Electrical Cable Tiles


Plastic Cable Protection Covers

Plastic cable protection covers from Boddingtons offer a heavy duty impact resistant cover/tile to buried electrical lines from future excavations with a highly visible warning message.

Cable covers protect buried electrical lines and other pipe or service lines and are strong, yet lightweight. Manufactured from recycled polyethylene (plastic), cable covers have a coloured printed underground warning tape bonded to the top surface to offer the dual benefit of a visual warning of the danger below as well as impact resistance.

Cable covers are eco-friendly as they can be recycled and should be installed over high voltage power cables or other buried services which require additional protection from future rogue excavations.
