Labels & Tags for Construction

Specialised, high performance tags and labels to identify and track building materials throughout their lifetime.

Label Durability is Our Strength

The construction environment is a hostile place for labels and tags. They must withstand prolonged weathering, creasing and crushing, mechanical handling, irregular product shapes and difficult surfaces.

Therefore, construction labels and tags need to be extremely robust. We’ve developed a full range of technical labelling solutions to meet the demands of the building and construction sector.

Construction products originate from a diverse range of raw materials for example steel, concrete, timber, brick, stone, aggregate, glass and plastic. Each base material should be regarded individually when it comes to labelling; it’s certainly not a case of one label fits all! Our experts will help you identify the right label for your products and supply chain.

An Excellent Track Record

Barcode identification, supporting full supply chain tracking, traceability and inventory control is often now considered a contractual obligation when supplying materials to the buildings and construction sector which, in turn, promotes stakeholder confidence.

A Code of Conduct

Identifying construction products with a barcode encapsulates important data such as product codes, date information and customer data. It is a tried and tested method of reducing the opportunity for human error. Early barcoding of a product during its lifespan is now achievable with the right label, allowing track and trace throughout the production cycle, using just a singular label. Barcodes can dovetail into your inventory control and logistical operations to support smart production.  

CE You Soon

Since 2013 producers of construction products have been required to CE mark their products which are marketed and used within the EU. A valid CE mark reassures buyers of construction products that the production site and operations meet the required standard.

Industrial Strength Tags

We have the manufacturing expertise and capability to produce tags from heavy duty industrial materials which are notoriously difficult to convert into tags. 

The most important thing when it comes to the labelling of construction products is that the vital data on that label arrives at its destination attached and legible. We supply industrial strength tags which can be stitched into woven textiles such as bulk bags and tarpaulins. Our tags are specifically designed not to tear, even if they become damaged, making them ideal for attaching using nails, studs, clips or wires. We can also supply your tags with slots which allow them to be affixed using banding straps.  

Our industrial tags are designed to spring back to their original form after creasing and crushing to maintain barcode readability. Many of our industrial tags also have the added benefit of being heat resistant making them ideal for products which go through a heat treatment process.     

Construction tags can be supplied colour coded, part-printed or plain, for use with an in-house label printer which we can also install and maintain. We work with you to overcome any historic labelling problems you have experienced. Our dedicated Construction Team aim to offer the best return on investment for your business.

Heavy Duty Self-Adhesive Labels

We produce heavy duty self-adhesive labels which stick to uneven, irregular shaped or dusty surfaces. Our labels remain affixed where other labels have failed.

Common labelling problems in the construction sector relate to self-adhesive labels falling off, perishing or fading in UV light. Dura-ID Solutions has developed a specialised range of self-adhesive labels to withstand challenging environments, prolonged outdoor exposure and everything unpredictable weather can throw at them. This ensures product identification and traceability is maintained when applied either directly to your product or its outer packaging. When manufacturing pre-printed labels, we use only the highest quality UV stabilised inks to guard against fading.

Our self-adhesive labels can be supplied pre-printed or plain and we have options for thermal transfer, laser or inkjet printers.

Self-Tie Tags

Our self-tie tags provide an easy-to-apply identification solution, even with gloved hands and without the need for additional fixings. 

Self-ties are durable, weatherproof and can be attached to a wide variety of construction products and packaging. These tags are also sometimes referred to as loop-locks or luggage tags. They provide an important role in the identification, traceability, CE marking and distribution of construction products where a self-adhesive label is unsuitable.

Self-tie tags are offered in a wide range of materials, including waterproof, high strength or temperature resistant, depending on your unique need. They can also be supplied plain or pre-printed suitable for overprinting on-demand using a thermal transfer or laser printer.
