Tactile Warning Symbols

braille labels

Insignia Symbols are a leading supplier of self adhesive tactile warning symbols with a raised tactile finish. This tactile effect is created using a special varnish. These tactile warning symbols are for use on packages which contain hazardous substances, as required by the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009, which came into force on 6 April 2009 (these regulations are also known as CHIP 4) together with the European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP Regulation), adopting in the EU the Globally Harmonised System (GHS), to assist blind and visually impaired people.

So whether you are a manufacturer, importer, pack-house, contractor, charity or retailer, we specialise in providing the highest quality, cost effective tactile warning symbols in small to large sized runs.

Specialists in Tactile Warning Symbols

We produce a variety of tactile warning symbols so if you are looking to ensure your product symbols comply with current legislation, please give us a call. European legislation requires that all substances readily available to the public, identified as "toxic", "very toxic", "harmful", "extremely flammable", or "corrosive", and any aerosol classified as "harmful", "toxic" or "corrosive", must have a symbol containing the raised triangle warning symbol to alert the blind or visually impaired to the potential danger of these chemicals.

These warning symbols have a raised triangle above the symbol and they must be produced in accordance with EN ISO 11683 which clearly sets out the dimensions and specifications for the triangle and symbol. This is the same production method used to print Braille.

Whatever type of tactile warning symbol you are looking for, we have got the answer.
