New Underground Cathodic Protection Test Station | CP HideOut
Rhino has introduced the HideOut, an underground (CP) cathodic protection test station which offers excellent visibility, is durable, locatable, and installs flush with the ground eliminating mower interference.
Rhino HideOut CP
Rhino provides damage prevention and cathodic protection systems for underground utilities since 1990. The company is a leader in the industry, and its employees serve on the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), a member-driven organization committed to preventing damage to underground utilities by advocating effective cathodic protection and damage prevention practices.
Those in the industry understand the importance of cathodic protection, which offers a sacrificial metal to perform as an anode, indirectly protecting the pipeline from corrosion. The brain of this electrochemical cell is the test station, and with that in mind, using a trusted test box is essential.
Cathodic Protection Test Station
The Rhino HideOut is a 24″ flush-mounted test station that is low profile, providing lawnmowers to do their job with ease yet delivers a highly visible warning message. Its design permits easy access to the wires when attached to the sliding terminal board. The test station is easily locatable as it comes with a steel plate beneath the cap. The locking cap comes punched with a unique anchor system permitting it to lock into the ground in various soil conditions.
The product is extremely durable as it is made of RhinoPoly and can withstand temperatures ranging from -40° to +150° F. The rugged 7″ round cap with a warning message is fade and impact-resistant and UV stable.
The HideOut comes with standard legends for each utility type, whether cable, gas, fiber optic, natural gas, sewer, or water. It can also be customized to include your company’s message, which would be hot stamped into the plastic, which does not scratch, peel, or fades for at least ten years. There are additional art and plate charges for custom legends.
The HideOut comes standard with two internal terminals. Additional terminals, custom hardware, or the Rhino LocatePlate are optional.
