Be safe while excavating around buildings.
Almost all buildings will have utilities running in and out of them. If you are carrying out any excavation work in close proximity to a building you need to make sure that the buried cables or pipes are not struck. This is especially important for commercial buildings where a cable strike can have a big impact on the running of the business.
Easily identify the electricity cable.
A Property Connection Kit and Signal Transmitter are used along with the Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT). They apply a signal to the mains electricity supply, which must be switched on and live, so it can be located and traced using the CAT.
Why should I use this method?
- Quick, easy and reliable method to identify the electricity cable.
- Electricity cables are one of the most deadly cables to strike and can cause serious burns or personal injury.
- Ideal in areas with buried cables or pipes (e.g. city centre) - this method helps to identify the electricity supply only to the building you are interested in.
