    CONTACT WITH POWER LINES AROUND BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION SITES

    Construction and building sites routinely approach or encroach critical safety clearances around Power Lines. Cranes, Dump Trucks, Scaffolding, Ladders and Personnel are all at risk of contact:

    Power Line Markers for the Building & Construction Industry (ROTAMARKA™) “URBAN MARKERS”

    Building and construction sites the world over face safety risks every day. One of these is the proximity of live overhead Power Lines and Wires which pose a risk to Earth Moving equipment, Cranes and other plant which may breach clearances and come into contact with live wires. This has the potential to cause injury or even death. The cause is usually related to the overhead Powerlines not being seen by the operators of the plant and equipment. The Balmoral Markers have been specifically designed to maximise their visual impact by rotating multi coloured fins in three dimensions. When installed on Utility overhead wires, they assist operators locate and plan to avoid any potential contact between the Powerlines and plant.

    LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT COLLISIONS WITH POWER LINES

    Power Lines skirt or cross agricultural land and can be almost invisible to pilots. According to WMC Action News 5:

    Power Line Markers for Low Flying Aircraft (ROTAMARKA™)

    In the Agricultural industry, low flying aircraft and farm plant can collide with hard to see poles and wires. Aerial Agricultural activities routinely increase the risk of these scenarios occurring. Crops Duster pilots often must navigate fields where power lines cross or border. These power lines are integral to the electrical supply of the farm, but due to their hard to see nature, pose a real threat to pilots. The Balmoral Warning Marker range are purpose built and designed to provide an engineered outcome for both temporary and long term visualisation of power lines. The three dimensional articulated design is Patent Pending and rotates and agitates in even low wind conditions to provide a superior visual indicator from all angles of approach. Contrasting colours increase the visual impact. The clamp is universal and fits conductors of diameter 2-50mm. Soft jaws increase grip to stop cable creep. High quality reflectors increase the visual impact. Available in both Bayonet and Eye Ring fittings to work with standard live line tools. Can be installed from the ground with Telescopic Hot Sticks.

    Power Line Markers for the Mining Industry (ROTAMARKA™)

    With onsite high voltage power and electrical infrastructure, risk of contact between plant and machinery and power lines is a constant threat. With overhead lines and wires notoriously difficult to visualise and mining activities occurring throughout the night and day, the Balmoral Markers can provide part of the preventative strategy companies can take to reduce or stop dangerous and costly incidents. The key aspect of the Balmoral Line Marker is the ability to rotate in the wind providing an element of movement. This creates a dynamic warning that is efficient in a range of lighting conditions. Mining electrical infrastructure can be set at a range of voltages required to drive plant and equipment on-site. These voltage are typically high in order to sufficiently power large machinery. This makes the potential risk even higher, since greater voltages means increased chance of the electricity finding an unplanned earth or ground.
