Demining markers

The SD markers are a “Mine-marker” used to mark a find prior to its destruction, a Signal-indicator and an Excavation-guide.

The Mine-marker (SKU3023) shown alongside is a collapsible four-sided box made from a flexible, marker folded flatwashable 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.

marker for use with a metal detector indicationThe 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.

20cm long guide to distance from indication to start of excavationThe 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.

Made 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.
