We are delighted to report that our IMO Safe Signs are nominated for the Safety at Sea Award 2018. The awards recognize those who improve seafarer competence and risk management with innovations and achievements in the fields of training, operations, equipment and services. Our signs have been nominated for the fact that they are made out of PETX, an unique product composition in the market. Non PVC and absolutely Halogen free, besides that 100% environment friendly and recyclable.
Every ship has to comply with certain worldwide demands and international regulations for safety signage and security measurements on board, as well for the personnel as the passengers. In case of an emergency or just for information the signs has to be produced and mounted according to the (new IMO) international standards.
Most common signs are printed on the surface and are thereby highly affected by certain weather conditions, such like seawater, high temperatures and direct sunlight. Colors fade and the surface gets friable/fragile. Our innovative PETX Safe Signs are back printed so the signs are highly durable and the weather conditions have less impact on the color. The signs are made out of several layers and finished with a PET layer so the surface will be glossy and easy to clean.
With this innovation we are trying to save the environment by creating less pollution, using environment-friendly materials, free from toxics or radioactive additives. All our signs come with a 10 year warrantee, even in outdoor usage.
The winner of the Safety at Sea Award will be announced on the 18th of October 2018 at the Le Méridien Piccadilly Hotel, Mayfair, London. We hope to win one of these most prestigious maritime industry awards.
