Business owners, homeowners, and anyone that is responsible for their own safety and others should take it upon themselves to be familiar with ANSI pipe marking standards. Creative Safety Supply is now offering pipe marking supplies that will help identify a pipe's content and direction of flow.
All kinds of pipes contained with water, hazardous gases or other liquids run through structures to provide manufacturing of products and general daily functions. These piping systems should be appropriately labeled to make people aware of the materials they carry and which direction the material contained in the pipe is flowing. ANSI (American National Standards Institute) provides standards addressing pipe marking by offering a common labeling method for use in all industrial, commercial, institutional facilities and in buildings used for the public. This standard is only applied to above ground piping and not buried pipelines or electrical conduit.
The most effective way to communicate the contents of the pipes and give additional detail if special hazards (such as extreme temperatures or pressures) exist is by the use of pipe-marking labels. Creative Safety Supply, a leading supplier of safety products, offers a large selection of pre-printed pipe labels that will take the legwork from outsourcing pipe markers. In addition to pre-printed, pipe-marking labels, Creative Safety Supply also offers pipe-marking supplies, including industrial-grade LabelTac label makers, which can print thermally printer labels that are resistant to extreme temperatures, water, chemicals, and UV exposure.
A business owner commented: “Pipe labeling has created a safety awareness within our facility and it was easy to accomplish with labels provided through Creative Safety Supply."
