We provide an essential part of utility pole inspections for utility companies – the identification.
Power poles are inspected regularly for safety and inventory purposes.
Identification tags provide inspectors with all the relevant information they need to accurately and efficiently document for the inspection.
Our anti-corrosion utility pole tags are relied upon for safety inspections spanning many industries. From power line poles to energy valves, we cover it all.
Numbered Asset Tracking
We frequently produce serialized number tags for telephone pole asset tracking. Sequential numbers are one of the most common methods to mark and track your poles.
Our embossed power pole tags are easy to read even if they get dirty or painted over which makes these a great solution for reliable utility asset management.
Barcode Asset Tracking
Another form of asset tracking that we often see is barcode tracking. Some telecommunications companies prefer to add a QR, data matrix, or barcode to their pole markers.
Our barcode and QR code tags provide telecom workers with the ability to store and access information right on the pole via a quick scan.
Data stored on the tag can include:
- Condition of the pole
- Last service or inspection
- Geographic coordinates (location)
With so many benefits, it is easy to see why barcode pole tags are often the preferred choice by inspectors for better readability.
Material choice is important when selecting a tag or nameplate solution. We provide our customers with high-quality materials that fit best for their application.
Telephone pole tags are subject to years of wear and tear from weather, use, and abrasions. This means a durable material is essential.
A few examples of our material options include:
- Stainless Steel
- Anodized Aluminum
When it comes to utility pole marking, durability is the name of the game. With poles out in the elements day and night, any identification solution must be very durable.
Our embossed tags are created using a die set, which raises characters upward in the metal. Since there is no topical ink on the tag, there is nothing to fade or wash off.
This high durability makes embossed tags one of our most used processes for pole identification. These are most commonly used for serialized number tagging.
Need to add more than just a number? Our photo anodized tags are an outstanding solution.
These nameplates are fully customizable with any information, design, or codes.
Examples of data commonly used on these tags:
- Servicing Number
- Location Info
- Company Logo
- QR/Data Matrix Codes
In addition to customization, photo anodization is incredibly durable. Rated for 20+ years outdoors, these plates are more than capable of withstanding the elements.
