Our team of Cairns cable locator contractors are highly experienced and undertake regular and ongoing training to stay at the forefront of their industry. Our equipment is the latest technology available and includes Metrotech Locators and PinPoint GPR. Our clients include residential and commercial customers, landscapers and larger civil works contractors.

Our process is simple and effective. After an initial site inspection, our Cairns cable locators will determine the best technique to accurately locate the position and alignment of underground cables. A common method used is clamp induction, where clamps are placed on the cable via a service pit and an electromagnetic frequency (EMF) pulses along the cable for detection by the locator unit. In instances where there is no direct access to the underground asset, we use the direct connection technique as well as drop box induction, to send EMF waves from the surface to attain depth and alignment readings. Both methods enable us to accurately determine the location and alignment of underground cables.

Our team draws on more than over 50 years’ of combined experience in excavations and laying cable. We’ll provide you with accurate locations and detailed site markings, enabling you to dig safely and with confidence.
