Equipment Tags

Metal equipment tags offer the most durable identification for your equipment. Whether you need warning tags, instruction tags, maintenance tags, or something else, metal tags will get the job done.

Inland Products makes and stocks equipment tags in anodized aluminum, brass, and stainless steel in a large variety of sizes and shapes but can also create custom tags to suit your specific requirements if you prefer.

Equipment Tags... More important than you might think!
According to OSHA, if your business has machinery and equipment, you need to take the proper actions to ensure employees know how to operate it safely. 
Considering many workplace accidents happen as a result of improper instructions and labeling, you must have clear and noticeable labels on all your machinery and equipment. A small investment in an identification tag can make a world of difference in your place of business.  
Materials Available
Anodized aluminum: The best choice if you want colored metal tags; these are lightweight and scratch-resistant. They can be rotary or laser engraved. Choose from up to 12 colors.    
Stainless Steel: The most durable tags available for the most demanding conditions. Very corrosion resistant and resistant to chemicals, saltwater, and harsh cleaning agents.

Brass: These are corrosion-resistant too. You can get them either plain or with a decorative lacquer-coated finish, making brass metal tags a wise choice if you're going for better aesthetics.

Plastic: Great when you require a lightweight tag that is available in many color choices.
Which Material Should You Use?        
Now that you know about the basic types of materials used for equipment tags, you may be wondering which one's right for your purposes. Here are a few things you should consider when deciding between metal or plastic ID tags.
The Environment 
As we said above, some labels may be exposed to harsh conditions. In that case, plastic may not be a good option, as metal is significantly sturdier.     
However, if you're going to be using your identification tags indoors in normal conditions, then both types can be suitable.
If you're labeling an electrical or operational panel where there's the possibility that electricity could pass through the tag, and there's a chance your employees could come into contact with it, then the wiser choice here would be plastic.
