Utilitape Underground Warning Tape (UWT) is a coloured plastic underground non-detectable marker tape manufactured by Boddingtons for low-density polyethylene (LDPE).

The underground line marker tapes are printed with warning messages for marking underground buried service lines (electric cables, fibre optic cables, water pipes, gas pipelines).

The tapes are cable protection covers, designed to be installed between the pipe or cable and the surface in the excavated trench so that any future rogue excavations will hit the warning tape before the cable or pipeline.

Boddingtons underground warning marker tapes are an economical way of warning excavators of buried pipes and cables below ground. Underground warning tapes can be manufactured to a customers’ specification with any language, colour, size and text some examples are shown in the table below:
