Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Graphic Products, Inc., has introduced new DuraLabel color-coded, self-laminating labels for telecommunications professionals to help identify cables and wires. Locating, repairing and upgrading telecommunications system cables and wires are much easier when labels are color-coded. Color coded wires and cables are in compliance with the ANSI/TIA/EIA-606A Administration Standard for Telecommunications. This standard calls for labeling visibility (size, color and contrast) and durability. The standard also calls for a uniform labeling format that includes the type, location and purpose of all cables and end-points plus color coding for faster and easier identification of all elements. Labels must be created or printed with a mechanical device as handwritten labels may be illegible.
A self-laminating wrap provides an opaque header on which cable identification information is printed. A clear tail wraps around the cable or wire to protect the printed information. This added protection helps printed text, pictograms, colorful headers and bar-codes stay vibrant and resist fading and scratching on most any size wire or cable. Both terminated and non-terminated wires are easily labeled with these self-laminating wire-wraps. Once printed and cut, this supply attaches around itself for a tight-fitting label. DuraLabel self-laminating wire marker labels are available in 8 colors:
Cables up to about 0.9 inches in diameter may be labeled. Resistant to moisture, sunlight and chemicals such as alcohol solvents and cleaning agents, DuraLabel self-laminating wire wraps can be used in locations exposed to harsh conditions.
The color-coded section of the wire wrap is available in a number of sizes, including custom sizes.
Coupled with a DuraLabel thermal transfer printer such as the DL PRO300 and software, users can print hundreds of labels on the fly and incorporate graphic images onto labels for a professional appearance and lasting identification.
