Introducing "Alpine Snow Markers"
Alpine Snow Markers (US Patent #7,694,641, Canada Patent #2639697) assist in identifying and protecting electrical transformers, junction vaults and fire hydrants that are buried under snow.
Identification is critical to quickly locate electrical transformers and electrical vaults that are buried under snow during a power outage particularly during sub zero cold weather conditions. Quick restoration of power is key during these conditions.
Identification is critical to quickly locate fire hydrants that are buried under snow to assist the fire rescue personnel to extinguish a building fire and save lives.
The solid fiberglass Pultrusion has the advantage that should the rod be vandalized to the point of breaking it will splinter into soft fibers and so will not cause injury if a person comes in contact with it.
It is important to snow removal personnel to easily identify electrical transformers, junction vaults and fire hydrants during the snow removal process, to prevent damaging these essential utilities.
Effectively contributes to the prevention of pollution and the conservation of natural resources.
