Ingenuity in detailPrecise hazardous goods labeling on premium warning signs with BOXLAB Services innovative placement aid
Transportation of dangerous goods requires the utmost care and accuracy, especially when it comes to labeling. BOXLAB Services presents a pioneering solution - the "Orange Warning Label with Preprinted Single Digit Placement Guide". In this article, we highlight the importance of accurate dangerous goods labeling, the specific requirements of the ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road) and why correct labeling is so crucial.
Innovative and effective - the placement aid makes all the difference:

Simple but ingenious: the finely printed markings are the key to consistent and accurate placement of the individual digits. A small innovation with a big impact on the appearance and quality of your labeling.
Consistent precision: No matter who applies the digits, the pre-printed indicators ensure reliable positioning. This not only guarantees a professional look, but also compliance with ADR regulations.
Effortless application: Simply follow the predetermined markings to apply 2, 3 or 4 digits effortlessly and precisely. It has never been easier to label your warning sign neatly and tidily.


Label your warning signs with customizable number labels:

Individual labeling: Each label sheet provides 10 high quality numeric labels of a specific digit (e.g. 10x „1“, 10x „2“, etc.), providing clear and easily recognizable markings on your warning signs.
BS 5609 Section III certified: Meet stringent requirements for durability and legibility, even in demanding conditions, thanks to BS 5609 Section III certification.
Durable material: The polyethylene (PE) labels are resistant to various weather conditions, oil and dirt repellent and therefore guarantee long-lasting integrity.

Why is correct labeling so important?

The correct labeling of dangerous goods is not just a regulation, but an absolute necessity. Every dangerous goods shipment must be labeled accordingly to indicate the potential risks. The ADR regulations set out clear guidelines for labeling and compliance is essential.

Precision for maximum safety

The placement of the individual digits on the warning sign plays a crucial role, and this is where BOXLAB Service’s innovation comes in. The pre-printed placement aid ensures consistent and exact positioning, regardless of the user. This not only saves time, but also guarantees compliance with ADR guidelines.

ADR specifications in detail:

Font type and size: The ADR stipulates that the numbers on the warning sign must be clearly visible and in black lettering on an orange background. The pre-printed positioning aid facilitates the precise implementation of this requirement.
Positioning of the numbers: The numbers must be placed on the warning sign in accordance with the ADR guidelines. Our placement aid provides clear indicators to ensure error-free placement.
Consistent presentation: Any deviation from the ADR specifications can result in the warning sign losing its validity. Our innovative solution ensures that every warning sign is consistently and correctly labeled.

Penalties for non-compliance:

Failure to comply with the ADR regulations on dangerous goods labeling can lead to serious consequences. Penalties, delays in transportation and even endangering safety are possible consequences. With the „Orange warning sign with pre-printed single-digit placement aid“ from BOXLAB Services, you can minimize these risks considerably.
