TestPost® markers add a terminal/test station to standard marker posts. Enclosures are constructed of Lexan® polycarbonate high-impact plastic and feature rugged stainless steel hardware. Each unit comes with five standard terminals. Special compression lugs are available for easier wire attachment. Anchor bar included with each marker. This cathodic test post is fade resistant and UV stable. Comes standard with a 3.5″ diameter shaft with 11 terminals; also available in a 1.5″ size with two standard terminals.
Test posts are also available with a fully customizable faceplate. This scratch-and impact-resistant terminal faceplate withstands harsh outdoor elements and excessive handling by field crews. Permanent lettering ensures descriptions won’t wear out. Easily made to order with custom text, layout and number of holes.
Why Our TestPost® Markers are Better
Premium Construction–outdoor durable marker posts feature Lexan polycarbonate cap and 100% prime high-density polyethylene body. The UV-stabilized plastics prevent warping and can withstand harsh outdoor environments for 20-20+ years.
Embedded Graphics–unlike surface or screen-printed marker posts, our custom graphics are permanently molded into the polyethylene material. Graphics won’t fade, chip or peel and cannot be scratched off, ensuring your underground utility remains clearly marked. Permanent printing will even withstand harsh solvents used for removing graffiti.
Color Legends–high-visibility colors conform to US DOT regulations. Available in APWA uniform color codes (see chart below).
