Metal Name Plates: A Must-Have for any Business!
There are many reasons your company could need to purchase custom metal nameplates and/or engraved metal plates for its operations. This is often because of a need for a bit more instruction or direction. Maybe you need to convey just a simple reminder to your workers and clients of things they already know. Or, maybe more. The information on a data nameplate can be the difference between satisfaction and frustration.
Here are a few of the more common uses for metal nameplates:
1. Product and Brand Awareness Nameplates
Metal nameplates printed using our DuraPrint® metal printing process are ideal for product identification and brand awareness nameplates.
The DuraPrint® process can print full color images into the open pores of the anodized aluminum. Then, in a separate process, we seal the ink into the pores of the aluminum under a glass clear very hard anodization layer. This process makes for a very durable nameplate with superior scratch resistance that will hold up well even in very harsh environments.
So, by using DuraPrint® metal nameplates, you can protect your image and your brand while providing important information about your products!
2. High-Risk Work Environments
If you’re the owner or manager of a high-risk work environment, you know you can never have too many warnings and labels about proper safety practices. Not only are those labels a way of educating your staff and preventing injury, but they also help protect you from being liable for a work-related injury.
Regardless of the workplace you have, there are always dangerous chemicals or heavy equipment your employees need to be cautious with. So, by placing a data plate on that equipment, it can make the difference between safety and a life-changing injury.
Consider getting a customized data plate that lists all the instructions you deem necessary for a safe workplace. These instructions could be for the handling of materials, proper maintenance, product information, safety information, and much more.
3. Aviation Identification
Not only is aviation identification a perfect use for data plates, but it’s also a legal requirement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). So, you’ll need to attach a data nameplate that outlines all the proper identification details. These details include the model, serial number, certificate number, production certificate number, aircraft engine rating, and the name of the manufacturer.
In addition, the FAA requires that the identification plate you use be fireproof and made of industrial-strength materials. And, you’ll need to place it on the outside of the aircraft, visible to anyone needing its information. Make sure it’s in an area of the aircraft where the information on the data plate can be easily read by someone viewing it on the ground.
While that’s a lot of factors to consider, it goes a long way towards ensuring the safety of both the passengers and pilots.
There are many moving pieces employed in an elevator. They make it operate effectively and stay durable for several years. With that said, an elevator isn’t something you can easily replace.
To help keep them in good working order, metal nameplates can go a long way towards educating all essential personnel on the specifics of the elevator(s) in your building. In fact, you or your workers can’t perform proper maintenance to the elevator without the necessary details being in place. Assuming you don’t carry your elevators’ specs around with you, you’ll want to create a data plate especially to convey those specifications. Thus, a data nameplate is perfect for being the central hub for key information such as the weight limit, elevator type, manufacturer, emergency information, safety inspections, etc. That data plate you create for your elevator will ensure that it’s tended to properly. Hence, saving you thousands of dollars over the course of the elevator’s lifetime.
5. Electric Equipment
Electricity in the workplace must be handled with extreme caution. Your workers may not realize the seriousness of properly using all electrical equipment. Not using the equipment properly can result in serious shock and burns to their body. So, by placing data plates on the items accordingly, you can ensure your workers’ safety while the handle the electrical equipment for their job.
The information on the data nameplate attached to electrical equipment can include that equipment’s model number, serial number, and weight. However additionally, you should include things like the manufacturer, directions for use, possible safety hazards, and emergency contact numbers. When you use these plates, you’re not only taking steps towards preventing injury to your employees, they’ll also know exactly who to call if an accident happens to them or others.
So, unless you plan on standing right by the equipment 24/7 to instruct them, the metal name plate is the best way to spread must-read safety information.
Vehicles of all kinds are prone to tough and demanding outdoor weather conditions. This requires a tough nameplate that can survive those conditions. Therefore, because of their excellent scratch resistance and overall durability rating, DuraPrint® metal nameplates are especially appropriate for your transportation vehicles. This fact is why our nameplates are bought by auto and truck manufacturers, airline and aviation companies, railroads, shipbuilders and, of course, the U.S. military for their transportation needs.
