MARKEN label holders, which were launched in South Africa by Conceptainer about three years ago, have been well received by the local market, particularly the automotive, warehousing and distribution sectors.
That’s according to Ian Gallie, Sales Manager at Conceptainer, specialists in the custom-design and manufacture of packaging systems. “Marken label holders are perfect for attaching control documentation to bins, crates and racking in diverse industries, to prevent data inaccuracies,” he said.
“These sturdy label holders are re-usable, hygienic and easy to keep clean .These high impact-resistant label holders are unaffected by ultra-violet rays and challenging weather conditions and are also designed for non-absorption of contaminants, offering extended service life, even in tough environments, as well as the food sector, which demands pristine conditions.”
He said Marken label holders replace conventional clear plastic holders used to fix control documentation to rotor moulded bins, canvas and PVC material containers.
“The conventional means of fixing control documentation, using adhesive cards or clear pouches, is often unsightly, uneconomical and has a short operational lifespan. Conventional pouches easily disfigure and eventually tear or break. Added to the inconvenience of this, unsightly adhesive residue can be retained on the container or racking when removed.”
Conceptainer’s durable, lightweight label holders are manufactured to the required size, using Polypropylene (PP) which can be re-cycled, as a contribution towards reducing carbon footprint. They are available in blue, black, grey and also in specified corporate colours to enhance a company’s brand. The vertical chamfered edges of the holder are adaptable to suit most packaging designs. This labelling system can also be attached to trolleys, containers, racking and shelving.
Marken label holders allow horizontal and vertical movement of packaging when labels are in position and by inverting the label holder, it can accommodate an A4 sheet vertically. The replaceable plastic document clips can be moved to various positions on the label holder to suit stock control sheets. This system enables scanners to read card information easily, eliminating data inaccuracies.
Self-tapping screws or blind rivets fix the Marken label holder securely to the bin, using the locating holes provided. Backing plates or washers are used to fix the holder to canvas and PVC material stillages. The recommended fixing method of these holders to steel cage and steel frame stillages is by cable ties or blind rivets.
