3 Reasons Metal Warning Plates are a Better Choice

Warning and caution labels are often considered catalog or stock items. There is no shortage of quick-run and cheap stickers that appear to satisfy the basic requirement of displaying a symbol or phrase. If you are in need of a permanent solution, consider a metal warning plate instead. Here's why.

Warning and caution plates made from aluminum or stainless steel are built to withstand both indoor and outdoor applications. Durable printing processes on metal and plastic substrates allow for a variety of customization options to make sure that your product safety labels communicate the right message, in the right way. Some of these include:

  • Bar Codes
  • Company Logo
  • Embossed Graphics
  • QR Codes
  • Serialization
  • Printed Compliance with OSHA and ANSI symbols or colors

2. Metal is permanent.

Metal warning labels are often applied to industrial equipment that is exposed to harsh environments including extreme heat or cold, chemicals and grease, as well as heavy handling. Metal is robust and stands up to these applications without deterioration of the nameplate or tag. Attachment with strong-tack adhesive or set in place with rivets and screws means the critical information is not going to fall off.

3. Metal is compliant.

There are some instances where regulations will dictate specific metal material that must be used to be compliant. Government agencies such as OSHA and ANSI have strict rules that are expected to be followed. Communicating critical information for safe operation and maintenance of industrial equipment deserves careful consideration. Aluminum and stainless steel are reliable and durable solutions that are compliant with the regulations.
