Hazardous or dangerous goods must be shipped with clear identification as to what type of chemical or product is inside the container. Below are some of the labels from the 9 classes of the ADR Hazard Warning labels:

The ADR regulations state that all packages containing dangerous goods should have a warning label of the correct class in a diamond shape and be at least 100mm x 100mm square with a 2mm inner border and a 5mm gap between the outside of this border and the edge of the label.

The larger 250mm x 250mm placards do not have the same requirement, however we have used the same specification to supply ours with a black inner border and a gap of 10mm to 15mm between this and the edge of the label.

Now, anyone can provide this label. It's just a matter of using a computer and some simple design software and off you go. However what comes next is what makes our labels the best on the market, the actual construction.

All our ADR Hazard Warning Diamonds are produced on a premium polypropylene material and finished with a gloss laminate. The base material we use conforms with B.S 5609:1986 which is perfect for for transport by Road, Rail, Air and Sea and because of this construction our Hazard Warning diamonds fully comply with the ADRRID, ADN, IMDG, IMO IATA requirements. 

To us, this is standard where as other places would use this combination as a premium product, but we believe in only supplying our customers with the highest quality and best product for the job at hand, so not only are you getting the best labels at the best prices direct from the manufacturer, we know they will do the job perfectly.
 
So if you regularly use hazard warning diamonds, why not check your specification and compare it to ours:
 
Premium Polyproylene
Gloss Laminate Finish
Marine Grade BS:5609 Adhesive
Lightfastness Inks
Supplied in rolls of 1000 (100mm size) or single sheets (250mm size)
5 working day turnaound
 
We very much doubt your current supplier will be able to match us for price or quality, and with prices for 100mm labels available for as little as £18.54 per 1000, and £0.29p for 250mm placards it really does make sense to stick with the best!
