Warning Stakes, Whiskers, Flags

Warning stakes from LEM are available in two styles of construction to accommodate different applications.

The High Performance Marker with the symmetrical three rib design is ideal for roadside delineation applications.  It offers the best choice for overall visibility and flexibility.  The design combines the strength and characteristics of flat markers with the low bending radius curved type markers.

The Economical Marker is designed for applications where less flexibility and a lower profile is preferred.  The dual rib design increases stiffness and improves installation.  A good choice for survey and boundary identification where increased flexibility is not a concern.  The design provides for easy center drilling and attachment of optical signs or custom safety tags and hardware.

Made of glass reinforced polyester composite, our warning stakes are available in standard lengths from 62 to 90 inches and in a range of colors including White, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red and Brown.

Either type of stake can accept adhesive backed industrial safety labels to display customized information pertaining to what the stakes are identifying whether it be a water or gas utility line or a property boundary.

LEM utility marking whiskers are an alternative or additional way to mark buried lines as well as constructions sites, athletic fields, property boundaries and many other uses.  Because this product is manufactured from an almost indestructible plastic material, these whisker markers spring right back up if run over by any heavy construction or mowing equipment.  Whiskers can be attached to wood stakes or to 60 penny (60d)  nails.  Available in 8 American Public Works Association (APWA) approved colors: Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, White and Yellow.

LEM Utility Marking Flags are the ideal above ground marking system for buried utility lines.  Manufactured from a superior formulated PVC material, these flags resist the breakage and tearing of high wind conditions and cold weather down to -40°F.

Stock utility marking flags are 4” x 5” and are supplied on 30”, 16 gauge steel staffs.  Available in 7 blank colors and 10 pre-printed legends in APWA colors including Blue for potable water; Red for electric power lines and lighting cables; Orange for communication, alarm and signal lines; Purple for reclaimed water and irrigation lines, White for proposed excavation and Yellow for gas, oil and steam lines.

Custom printed flags and alternate staff materials and lengths are available upon request.

LEM offers an easy to use flag insertion tool.    Place the Insertion Tool at the bottom of the flag staff.  Press down until desired depth is reached.  Pull out insertion Tool.
