Printed Tapes

A Guide to Printed Tapes and Labels

Self-adhesive tapes and labels printed with warning messages or symbols are a good way of alerting handling personnel to the handling requirements or contents of a consignment. A wide selection of these is available from stock in standard designs as a cost-effective alternative to custom printed tapes and labels.

Pacplus® Printed Message Tapes

These 48mm wide, 66 metre long white polypropylene tapes are printed conspicuously in red so that the message can be easily read, and are wound onto a standard 75mm cardboard core so they are compatible with most hand held and bench tape dispensers.

The product codes and printed messages are as follows:

Tegrabond® Printed Message Tapes

If water activated tape is preferred, these are also available with pre-printed messages on 70mm wide natural reinforced kraft paper:

Diamond-shaped 100 x 100mm CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) labels use recognised pictograms for rapid identification of hazardous contents:

The easiest way to dispense labels from the roll and protect them from damage is to use a Transpal® bench mounted label dispenser. Supplied with rubber anti-skid feet, predrilled holes mean they can also be permanently secured to a bench for additional stability.

The Transpal PD611T has a maximum roll width of 160mm – perfect for the CLP labels. The PD625T has a roll width of 250mm, allowing several rolls to be dispensed side by side.

Pacplus, Tegrabond and Transpal tapes and labels are all exclusively available from Southgate® and its network of approved distributors throughout the UK and across Europe. For more information call 01553 69 29 69 or email
