New Outdoor Die-Cut Arc Flash Labels From DuraLabelGraphic Products has released new die-cut DuraLabel Outdoor-Durable labels for Arc Flash labeling. Dangerous electrical Arc Flash explosions are likely to occur in outdoor locations as frequently, if not more frequently, than at indoor locations. Arc Flash injuries include severe burns which destroy skin tissue and other organs, huge pressure wave blasts that can throw the victim several feet, hearing loss and even death.
The new outdoor DuraLabel arc flash labels have been engineered to provide greater resistance to sunlight, weather and moisture, providing greater outdoor durability. Outdoor conditions are tough on labels, and it takes Tough Tested DuraLabel labels to provide maximum life.
The labor to install labels is usually the most costly part of labeling hazards. So having DuraLabel labels that last saves you money. But more importantly it ensures your labels are delivering their important information year after year. A faded, unreadable label can result in a serious injury or fatality. Using DuraLabel outdoor arc flash labels gives you longer label life and more reliable protection.
Arc flash labels serve four purposes:
·Convey information about arc flash hazards.
·Inform people to stay away
·Help electricians know precautions must be taken when interacting with electrical equipment.
·Inform workers about personal protection equipment (PPE) should they need to work on or near equipment that represents an arc flash hazard.
These tough labels can take the punishment of outdoor locations and are pre-printed with OSHA/ANSI compliant headers including WARNING, DANGER, CAUTION and NOTICE. The die-cut labels have better outdoor durability because the rounded corners are less likely to peel than the continuous supply.
All of DuraLabel's Arc Flash Labels are specially formatted for printing with the DuraSuite software. Each DuraLabel Printer comes bundled with DuraSuite, making it easy to print professional quality labels with all the required NFPA 70E information.
