TACTILE AND WARNING LABELS

People like to graze before they buy and graphic impact on the shelf may no longer be enough. Your packaging has to feel right to. Step forward - Tactile Labels. Etiquette provides you with synthetic products with a different touch. Tactile labels are guaranteed to make your products really stand out.

TACTILE WARNING LABELS

Legislation citates that all substances readily available to the public, identified as "toxic", "very toxic", "harmful", "extremely flammable" or "corrosive", and any aerosol propelled by butane, must have a tactile warning label to alert the blind or partially sighted that they are handling a dangerous product.

Tactile warning labels and hazard warning labels

Etiquette's tactile labels are made in accordance with European Standard BS EN ISO 11683:1997 and are supplied 2,500 on the reel, configured for hand or labelling machine application.

WARNING SYMBOLS

The warning symbol on a Tactile Label is an equilateral triangle with 18mm sides produced by a special process which enables the mark to sit proud on the 25mm diameter clear substrate, to be read in the same way as braille.

Bespoke Label Applicators are not needed to handle tactile labels but machines may need additional change parts.
