Now, you can avoid digging disasters - before expensive repairs, outages, accident or personal injury.
The Shovel Shield is an invention (pat. pend.) to warn you of dangers buried beneath the soil. You (or anyone else) can easily bury a Shovel Shield slightly above water pipes, electrical lines and service cables that deserve protection from shovel damage. Your shovel hits the protective shield - to warn you of dangers below.
Lengths of Shovel Shield can be extruded or molded of rigid materials or formed from flexible "tape" material - strong enough to halt your shovel stroke...and grab your attention. Obvious graphics, labels and warnings on the Shovel Shield quickly inform you of dangers below.
