Guardian Extreme Tags new from Master Lock

September 9, 2009

Health & Safety

Mississauga, ON Dust and dirt. High humidity. UV radiation. Harsh chemicals. Frequent washdowns. Extreme temperatures. Canadian industry throws some pretty harsh conditions at equipment and accessories, so Master Lock designed a tag for virtually all conditions that would stand up and not have to be replaced because of the contaminants mentioned above. Lockout/tagout programs have to work both inside and out in various surroundings and the new Guardian Extreme Tags will help to improve the overall safety program.

These tags are made from industrial-grade polypropylene and remain usable (easy to read) in spite of harsh environments. John Collins, Director Commercial Sales & Marketing for Canada noted, to make sure that our Extreme Environment Tags perform in the toughest conditions, we subjected them to more than 4,000 hours of QUV accelerated testing, including being subjected to more than 30 different chemicals and temperatures ranging from 50 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.”

Master Lock uses a patent-pending process that permanently fuses the graphics into the tag. Customers can also customize their own tags with either text or graphics, including photo ID for employees.
