Many current UK regulations, including Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment regulations 1998 and Working at Height Regulations 2005 and (amendment) 2007, require all personal protective equipment (PPE) and working at height equipment to be inspected at regular intervals by a ‘Competent person’. Many businesses working in these areas use Toughtags to evidence that equipment has been inspected and to help manage equipment and assets.
What size works best ?
Standard Tags (9 cm long) and Long Tag (18 cam long) are usually used to wrap around equipment such as cables etc. Text on Standard Tags and Long Tags is usually aligned left so that it can be read after Tags have been wrapped.
Small Tags are usually used as stickers and Text is usually centred. We can print text wherever you would would like it so any bespoke requests just let us know.
We sell Toughtags by the sheet and minimum order is 2 sheets. We print 66 Short Tags, 44 Standard Tags or 22 Long Tags to a sheet.
Can I add a logo or QR code ?
Yes, no problem at all. We only print in black ink so we will need a black and white copy of any logo / image.
Some of our clients use QR codes to help manage their assets. We can make and print QR codes onto Toughtags for you.
Neither of these options are available from our standard shopping cart so if you require either of these options then just send us an e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Will they work outside ?
Yes. Toughtags were originally created to work on climbing and mountaineering gear and work well outside. Clients have used them outside in conditions ranging from extreme cold to extreme hot and from extreme dry to extreme wet and just about everything in between. We expect them to work well for you wherever you need to use them.
Are they tamper-proof ?
Toughtags are tough, weatherproof and very durable. They are difficult to remove but can eventually be removed for example with a knife and a bit of hard work.
