ROTAMARKA™ Power Line Mini Marker installation demonstration with extendable or telescopic Hot Stick by a Linesman from the ground. Conductor height was approximately 8 metres from ground. Telescopic Stick was fitted with Balmoral Tool (LLCR) which fits on the end of the Hot Stick (Universal or Sun Riser industry standard attachment). This tool works with ROTAMARKA™ series that come with Eye Ring fitting only. Demonstration was performed in controlled conditions. Please see our Installation Instructions document and consult industry standards and guidelines, Network Owner work practices and safety procedures. Only for use by industry certified personnel.

Pilots must sometimes face the challenge of manoeuvring aircraft away from difficult to visualise Powerlines. Power Lines can blend into the background and appear almost invisible to the naked eye. The Balmoral Engineering™ ROTAMARKA™ with it’s Patent Pending 3D rotating design improves ready visualisation of the Powerline to which it’s attached. By demarcating Powerlines in such a way, this has the potential to save lives as well as costly power outages and asset damage.

Powerline strikes by Aircraft can lead to death and severe injury of Pilots. There is also the potential for power outages and costly repair bills to fix damaged assets. Unmarked Power Lines can appear almost invisible to the human eye. This lack of visibility can make it extremely difficult for Pilots attempting to navigate proximal Powerlines. The new ROTAMARKA, combines key elements of internal contrast, three dimensional form and the element of movement to create a highly visible warning device.

Phil Hurst describes the potential safety hazard overhead Power Lines pose to pilots flying in low level environments. He also discusses the issues around plant and equipment especially in the agricultural industry and the risk of contact with Powerlines. He then discusses a major safety innovation in the form of spinning or rotating markers which boost awareness and perception when installed on overhead Power lines.

 

Professor Martin summarises some of the key risks to Birds from Power Lines and key elements of Bird Diverter design to maximise impact and effectiveness on birds vision and perception.


Glen Cook, Principal Community Safety Specialist of Energy Queensland discusses the importance of Power Line Marking as a key safety initiative.


The Balmoral Engineering™ Black & Yellow 3D Marker for visual warning of Plant & Equipment around Construction sites. The Ball Bearing version shows has a low initiating wind speed to maximise its visual warning through its constant rotating movement. Can be installed by an operator in a Bucket Truck or from the ground with a Telescopic Hot Stick.


Updated technique for installing Panther Tails™. Panther Tails™ come in a range of sizes and styles and are ideally suited for live works by Utility personnel, protection of Wildlife from Electrical incidents and prevention of Power Line contact with Trees.
