Tactile labels are one of the most popular items in our online shop, and we have seen a significant increase in their use over the last few years. When blind and visually impaired persons handle a package, it can be difficult. Besides impossible for them to ascertain whether it contains harmless or dangerous substances or preparations.
European Standard BS EN ISO 11683:1997 specifies that a tactile warning of danger on the packaging which contains certain dangerous substances. Preparations must be used. The primary use of tactile labels is to alert a visually impaired person of anything regarded as ‘very toxic’, ‘toxic’. Besides ‘corrosive’, ‘harmful’ or ‘extremely flammable’ and aerosols propelled by butane too. By law, anything with these qualities must have a tactile label to alert people of the dangers of these substances.
Tactile labels are 25mm in diameter. Also produced to BS EN ISO 11683:1997 standards. We use transparent material with a raised central triangle. Reading this much like braille without obscuring the product underneath. We supply our tactile labels in rolls of 2500 and sell hundreds of thousands a week. Therefore we can keep our costs low. As we keep a large number in stock due to their high demand, they are almost always available for next day delivery.
