Utility poles: Smart Grid Tag marking system

Utility poles: Smart Grid Tags® from Premax create the physical link between a utility’s computer database and its asset in the field. Randomly numbered, Smart Grid Tags® provide each utility asset with a unique ID number – a “license plate,” if you will – allowing utility personnel to mark poles without having to worry about marking in sequential order.

Without duplicate numbers or the need for consecutive order, adding a pole or replacing a lost tag does not compromise the marking system. The tag can simply be replaced or a new one added, eliminating the need to improvise a marking solution.

Premax has been manufacturing utility marking systems since 1922. Premax’s embossed aluminum letters and numbers, in both Roman and Gothic typefaces, set the utility industry standard for property markers, station numbers, and pole identification. A large inventory allows for same-day shipping on stock products and five business day turnaround on other standard products. Custom products are also available.

Premaximum Service is Premax’s commitment to meeting specific marking needs through industry-leading knowledge, product focus, and customer-centric attention.
