We are in a period of time where more news headlines discuss massive weather events than ever before. Whether it be blizzard-like conditions in the Northeast or tornados in the midwest, the damage caused by massive storms can be downright incredible.
To help better protect the integrity of their power lines and ensure that their clients can keep power in their home when they need it most, more and more energy companies are burying their cables underground. By placing cables underground, damage and debris from storms can be controlled. It’s also easier to locate sections underground that are less likely to flood in the event of a storm. The issue becomes ensuring that the areas are properly marked so that no one accidentally digs in the are and causes major issues.
Underground cable protection often starts with the cover placed over the wires. This cover will prevent against dangerous electric shock should the cables be unearthed. It’s imperative that this type of underground cable protection has all of the proper warnings directly labeled on the wires. This can be the difference between life and death for the person who uncovers the wires.
The need for underground cable protection is growing as this is the preferred method for new and aged cable systems. In a world that has become smaller and smaller with how quickly we can connect to one another through technology, downtime is becoming more and more costly for businesses. The best underground cable protection can help ensure that no matter the weather, a business is able to function optimally.
