Custom Faceplate

TestPost Faceplate

Test posts are also available with a specially designed, fully customizable faceplate. This scratch-and impact-resistant terminal faceplate is designed to withstand 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 are designed to 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).
