New Utility Markers Technology

William Frick is constantly changing and improving our technology. RFID in utility markers is a rapidly changing field, and one where William Frick leads the industry. Just in the last year, we have introduced RFID enabled pole tags where data is encoded in barcode, long range visual and RFID format. We also outfit our TestPost utility markers with RFID capability to save time and minimize errors by linesmen.

High Visibility Markers, May 14 2010

By: Michael

Update: Frick's reflective technology advances high visibility markers to yet another level. Utility marking systems can now be even more bright or visible at dusk or at night. Ask about how to equip your pipeline markers, aerial markers, or other markers with these new reflective elements.

Great Selection of Utility Markers, January 24 2011

By: Robert

Effective utility marker installation is one of the keys to pipeline and utility line safety. We have found that William Frick supplies the most complete line of utility markers available to the industry. We have never had a need for a flexible utility marker or flat marker that Frick has not been able to fill.

We mark all of our buried lines with Frick's FlexPost flexible utility marker products to ensure that adjoining landowners and contractors know exactly where our lines are. This way we don't have to worry about accidents caused by poor identification of utility markers. We also use Frick's flat marker products to show where our lines cross paved streets and parking lots. Frick has all types of utility markers. We are in the process of setting up a computerized maintenance records system incorporating RFID enabled pole tags provided by Frick.

Utility Markers Using the Uniform Color Code Increase Safety, February 21 2011

By: Bill

As a general contractor, I require all of my employees and sub-contractors to be familiar with the uniform utility color code and to use it for all of our utility work. When one of my people drives up to a work site, I want them to be able to see exactly what kinds of potential hazards they are dealing with just by looking at the utility marker colors. For example, if they see yellow pipeline markers, they know there are petroleum product lines or steam pipelines at the site and if they see red markers, they know to be prepared for electric power lines or other cables.

William Frick always has the utility markers and marking systems we need for every situation. We use their color-coded pavement markers and FlexPost utility markers on almost all of our projects.
