FENO by Faynot (France)
Feno Markers are an original concept, developed by the Faynot company in France, which are now used in over 30 countires. When Faynot entered the topographic market in 1970, they did so with an entirely new concept: The Polyroc FENO marker, fitted with a head separate from its anchoring system.
The FENO marker offers advantages of other existing markers, but without their disadvantages:
- a head made of very strong resin, as solid as granite
- a metal anchorage, which can be extended making it impossible to uproot the marker and making its setting up both easy and accurate.

Code: Feno600 600mm FENO Spike complete with anchorage, polyroc head, plastic insert, survey nail and locking sleeve
Code: FenoToolSet600 Driver & Extension Sleeve for 600mm FENO Spike
The installation of FENO markers requires the use of three accessories; the driving tool (reusable), extension sleeve (reusable) and a hammer.
1. Position the marker, and clip on the locking sleeve. Drive in the anchorage using the driving tool and a hammer.
2. Stop driving when the handle of the tool is 1cm from the marker head (with the locking sleeve in position in the marker head)
3. Replace the driving tool with the extension sleeve
4. Hit the extension sleeve with the hammer. This operation has the following effect;
a) it drives the anchorage fully home
b) it applies high pressure, ensuring a perfect seating for the marker in the ground
c) if causes the extension of the three high-strength prongs which will firmly anchor and lock the marker
5. Stop driving when the sleeve handle is a few centimetres from the marker head
6. Withdraw the extension sleeve (reusable)
