Installation tips for longer lasting labels

As with any decal; for your flue labels to have a longer life span the surface of your load-beams must be clean and free of dirt and oil.

A misconception that an installer might have is that, since the load beams are new they are free of dirt and oil.

While the paint on the load beams is fresh, some factors that you need to consider are dirt contamination during transportation or when staging outside a warehouse. 

Below are a few quick tips to ensure you get the best out of your labels.

For New Load Beams

  1. Clean the surface where you will be applying the label with denatured or isopropyl alcohol
  2. When installing the label, assure that air bubbles do not form under it. Always use at an angle and roll down.
  3. Use label squeegee to press on the label. to assure all air bubbles are pushed out

For Used Load Beams

Many used load beams have bar code labels and are probably dirty with oil, or dust collected over the years.

Assure that you clean the existing adhesive with denatured or isopropyl alcohol. Do not use Windex or Soap, since they leave a soapy residue.

  1. Clean surface of the load beam with denatured or isopropyl alcohol and assure all oil and adhesive is cleaned off.
  2. When installing the label, assure that bubbles don’t form underneath.
  3. Always apply at an angle and roll down by using a small squeegee to press on the label.

Proper way to install your Labels

According to the (OCFA – Orange County Fire Authority High Piled Combustible Storage guidelines page 7 Item 10 – CFC 3208.3 – the requirement for the flue labels calls that: Transverse flue spaces between uprights need to be marked with a 3 or 6 inch yellow strip on the load beam with words in red that read, “Keep Clear,” .

Our labels are durable and come in two stock types; you can choose between regular paper stock and vinyl (BOPP) which will both satisfy the OCFA requirements.

Our Labels are OCFARancho Cucamonga Fire Department and SBCFire approved.
