Spotlight On: Security and Surveillance Industry
Throughout our last 40 years in business, we have seen the security and surveillance industry evolve quicker than any other industry. With high-tech security solutions now the norm within businesses and domestic premises, there has never been more pressure for security and surveillance systems to not only operate at a high level, but also to boast crisp aesthetics that seamlessly merge into your properties existing décor.
Here, we will take a closer look at how we serve the security and surveillance industry, highlighting some of the key labelling products we manufacture for the sector.
Surge In Demand For Security and Surveillance Technology
It’s no secret that the demand for security devices has increased in recent years, especially for residential properties. Homeowners around the world have begun investing in technology to deter robberies, from simple CCTV cameras right through to doorbells that link via video calls to the owner’s mobile phone. For businesses, the vast majority of commercial properties will have some form of security and surveillance system, whether that be a simple, but effective, burglar alarm, or even high-tech fingerprint scanners for employees to enter their place of work.
Regardless of whether you’re investing in a standard security system, or looking to install a state of the art system within your home or business premises, there’s no denying that you want it to not only operate well, but also look sleek. That’s where GSM Graphic Arts’ experts come in, as we have gained vast experience making labels for security and surveillance products over the years.
Commonly Used Label Types For The Security and Surveillance Industry
When it comes to serving the security and surveillance industry, we find there are a wide range of products that are used to achieve a desired finish for our customers. Here we discuss some of the most commonly used products for our customers in the security and surveillance industry:
Specialist Labels – Used for both product identification and promotional purposes, specialist labels offer manufacturers a high level of flexibility when it comes to achieving a finish that you are happy with. There’s no denying that when you’re working with products in the security and surveillance industry, there is a need for durable labels, which are also aesthetically pleasing, and specialist labels are capable of meeting both requirements. Our experts have the ability to work with a huge range of different materials in order to meet your exact requirements when it comes to specialist labels.
Weatherproof Outdoor Labels – With the vast majority of security systems being installed outdoors, it’s important that they are capable of withstanding the elements all year round. All of our weatherproof outdoor labels have been tested to ANSI specifications for UV durability, which means that anything printed onto them will remain legible for a minimum of 5 years. You can rest assured that when you choose to include this particular label on your product, it will last for years to come, ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction.
Plastic Labels – If weatherproof labels don’t quite match your requirements, then we often find that plastic labels are the most popular choice among our clients. Like weatherproof labels, they are capable of being used outdoors, but many clients opt to use this product indoors too. At GSM, we use a variety of plastics, that come in an array of thicknesses that can be under-surface printed to guarantee unrivalled levels of product durability.
Printing Solutions for the Security and Surveillance Industry
If you are looking for a label solution that is sure to meet your exact requirements, it’s also essential to consider what type of printing solution you will use to achieve the aesthetics that you desire. At GSM Graphic Arts, we have spent years developing the most effective printing methods for a multitude of purposes, and we find that the following are most suited to the security and surveillance industry:
Anodising – This process sees aluminium being electrically charged within a sulphuric acid solution, which opens up the pores on the surface of the material you are printing on. By using the anodising printing technique, we are able to print directly into the aluminium; and once this has been sealed, it produces a hard-wearing finish. This finish is ideal for any security systems that are likely to be installed outdoors, as the printed sections of your product will not show any signs of wear for a considerable amount of time.
Digital Printing – Digital printing is one of the most commonly used forms of printing, thanks to its flexibility and wide range of finishes. At GSM Graphic Arts, we can offer gloss, anti-glare and selective texture finishes to ensure complete printing clarity at all times, no matter where your security or surveillance product is installed.
