The SD markers are
a “Mine-marker” used to mark a
find prior to its destruction, a Signal-indicator and an Excavation-guide.
Mine-marker (SKU3023) shown alongside is a collapsible four-sided box made from a flexible,
washable fabric and non-magnetic
rod that is silver-soldered
together. With 12cm sides it stands 9cm high.
When not in use,
it folds flat and fits in a pocket or in the manual demining tool-bag. Alternatively, when it is folded flat, it can easily be attached to a belt or placed in an apron pocket.
Signal-indicator (SKU3024) is a small hexagon of polycarbonate with a red
cross in the middle. It is designed to be placed at the centre
of a detector reading. The detector can then be used over the
top of the marker to confirm the centre of the reading and the
marker moved if necessary. It includes a loop of nylon string
so that it can be worn around the wrist or located easily when
in a pocket.
Excavation-guide (SKU3025) is a triangle of clear polycarbonate with a 1cm lip
at one end and a red triangle at the other. The distance from the point of the red triangle to the
bend is 20cm, which is commonly used as the safe distance when exposing anti-personnel blast mines.
The deminer should place the red triangle at the
centre of the metal-detector reading and start excavating behind the
guide. When the deminer has reached the required depth, he/she moves the guide
aside and works forward to uncover the source of the reading.
using lightweight and transparent polycarbonate, the Signal-indicator
and the Excavation-guide allow the deminer to see the ground and
should not add to risk in the event of an unintended detonation.
