CAT and Genny

CAT (Cable Avoidance Tool) & Genny are used to help avoid underground services. Underground services can be a major hazard for construction workers. The CAT is used to locate cables on groundwork, excavation and construction sites so that they can be avoided. It can detect the signals that radiate naturally from metallic services and works in combination with a Genny that utilises a unique signal that the CAT can detect.

Damaging a pipe, cable or any other buried service during excavation, increases the chance of an accident. The damage may also result in injury, delays in work and repair costs.
