- They act as a protective barrier against damage to buried electricity, telecom and signal cables eliminating the risk of accidents and costly repairs. They can also be used to locate and identify other underground services.
- They are generally of two types namely, with Peak or Flat and classified based on the voltage rating of the cables to be covered.
