BACKGROUND COLOR

Color is the secondary means to identify the contents of a piping system but, many times the most important. The color of the marker should be used to identify the characteristic hazard of the contents of the pipe. The following chart list the classifications shown by ANSI / ASME A13.1 2007 as the suggested color combinations for the pipe markers.

LEGENDS & DIRECTIONAL FLOW

The standard regards the legend (wording on marker) to be the primary means of identifying the content of the pipe. The marker should give the name of the contents of the pipe in either the full name or abbreviated form. Arrows are also required to indicate the directional flow of the contents. Legends should be brief, pointed, and simple for greatest effectiveness. Contents should be identified with sufficient additional details such as temperature, pressure, etc., as are necessary to identify the hazard.
Scheme
  • Legends shall be installed close to valves
  • Legends shall be installed near branches and whenever a pipe changes direction.
  • Legends shall be installed before and after all wall, floor and ceiling penetrations.
  • Legends shall be at frequent intervals on straight pipe runs. Brimar recommends 20 ft.
  • Legends shall be installed on pipes to achieve the best visibility.

Printing Methods

We choose our printing processes for each product carefully so you receive the best quality product at the lowest price with industry-leading turnaround times. Depending on your size, material, quantity, and other factors, your sign will print using one of our carefully-tested methods.

Cross-Hatch Ink Adhesion Test

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.

We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.
