A need was identified for a practical, reliable and easy to use system to warn of the presence of overhead power lines and to assist in identifying and maintaining a safe stand-off distance to prevent overhead line strikes.

Extensive research and development within the company led to a system similar to that used by the military in Finland.

It uses lightweight glass reinforced telescopic poles with stable bases.

The poles extend to 6m in height and are very easy to erect.

A version has also been developed with fairy lights for night-time work on motorways.
