ISO7010 Colour Standards in Factory and Warehouse Marking


International standards are becoming more prevalent. What does ISO7010 mean in general & for Heskins products? Read more here.

Inter­national standards are becoming more prevalent for our warehouse marking tape PermaStripe. One of our aims is to always inform our customers of what standards are potentially applicable and to provide some form of detail.

What is ISO7010?

ISO7010 is the inter­national standard created in 2003 to assist with consistent safety sign regulation across Europe. This regulation concerns workplace safety signs and colour markings for accident prevention, fire protection, health & hazard information and emergency evacuation. Regulations are put in place to help provide a standardised system that is recognised throughout Europe. permaroute colour standardsInte­res­tingly, the UK didn’t adopt this standard until 2013, before then abiding by its own standard, BS 5499. The UK changed to ISO7010 in January that year once the standard became a European Normative ( EN ) and adopted by European law. Heskins try to choose colours that are vibrant and are a true repre­sen­ta­tion of the colour being neither too dark not too light. We now produce a range of colours that match ISO7010, the colours apply to both rolls and warehouse markers. The colours used are detailed below;

Black – RAL 9004 Signal Black (used on all as repre­sen­ta­tion for black)

Blue – RAL 5005 Signal Blue (used for warehouse markers)

Green – RAL 6032 Signal Green (used for PermaStripe, green/white PermaRoute and warehouse markers)
