Spotlight On: The Architecture and Construction Sector

Without our great architecture and construction sector, we wouldn’t have the amazing modern buildings and society that we live in. For over 40 years, we have provided the architecture and construction industry with a range of robust and flexible graphic arts solutions, as we believe that having the correct signage in place throughout the construction stage is essential for the safety of all those who are working on a project.


What Changed

Since the industrial era, the architecture and construction sector has evolved to reach previously unimagined heights. Through a mix of genius architects and new rules, the industry is more creative and safer than ever before.

Keeping these rules in place is where we can help. Without the appropriate signage and warnings, essential constraints can be forgotten. It is our mission to provide you with a visual means of communication that is clear, sturdy, and long-lasting.

We offer a range of nameplates and signage to be used, each with their own unique qualities to ensure that you have full coverage – no matter the environment. Let’s consider some of the items we have available:

When working in the construction industry, it’s essential that your labels and nameplates are capable of withstanding plenty of punishment. No matter what construction site you’re working on, there will be a need for barcode labels during your build, so it’s vital that these labels can remain clearly legible desipte being housed in a particularly harsh environment.

Rugged barcode labels are an extremely durable solution to your barcoding requirements, and are perfectly suited to construction settings. Their ability to uniquely identify items for recording and traceability purposes make them ideal for large construction sites where numerous orders enter the site on a regular basis.

Being able to quickly and accurately identify stock upon arrival, and around the site is essential to the smooth running of any project, and can save time and resources in the long run. It’s also an essential part of guaranteeing that you always have enough stock for your build, and that you don’t over order resources.

At GSM Graphic Arts, we are pleased to manufacture qr barcode labels, metal barcodes and aluminium labels for barcoding purposes. All of this means we are more than capable of creating barcodes that can stand the test of time no matter the environment they will be placed in.

We often find that firms within the construction industry will order metal barcodes, thanks to their robust nature and printing capabilities. Our experts digitally print onto the material using the latest printing technology, to ensure the barcode will remain visible for years to come, no matter what type of environment they are placed within.


Metal Nameplates

Metal nameplates are often used on specialist vehicles in construction. Since the majority of these vehicles work in trying conditions and are subject to a lot of dirt and abrasion, it is crucial that any messages being displayed by signage are uninterrupted by the decay of weathering.

We produce only the highest quality labels and can confirm that our metal plates are incredibly durable. We use the latest technology to engrave or ink your nameplates to your needs and can even advise you on the design of your required nameplate, where necessary.

We have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to the material used for your nameplate, and our recommendations may change depending on its use and environment. Many of our labels are constructed from stainless steel, but we can also use aluminium or brass depending on your requirements.

To summarise, you might choose our anodised aluminium nameplates if you need low volumes at reasonable prices, with a label thickness between 0.3mm and 2mm.

You might prefer our chemically etched stainless steel nameplates, however, if your signage is going to experience extreme weathering – as is such in the marine and oil industries.

UV Resistant Labels

It’s common for construction workers to spend a lot of time in the outdoors, and the same goes for their equipment, too! In this case, if you’re producing long-lasting equipment or directions, you want your designs to be more than legible years down the line – you want them to look brilliant.

Our UV resistant labels will achieve that. Guaranteed not to fade within a minimum of five years, most of our labels look fantastic for much longer than that. These labels have been subjected to over 2000 hours of testing, with at least eight reviews on changes over these times.

If you are interested in our UV resistant technology, we may be able to send you the results of our testing so that you can be 100% confident in your purchases with us.
