Live Wire Signs

A faded live wire sign is an unsafe live wire sign

When our power distribution client found that exposure to the harsh New Zealand sunlight meant their current live wire signs were fading too quickly when they came to Identimark for a better solution.

Our goal was to find a solution that would clearly display the potentially life-threatening hazard of live wires to everyone from the time of installation and well into the future.

Fade-resistant live wire signs prevent electrocution

Identimark trialled various products to find the best solution for our client’s unique needs.

Using U3 fade-free, long-lasting signs with SMP60 and Nat-gum adhesives were found to be the ultimate solution for our client. Identimark presented the client with a solution that was easy to install permanently and guaranteed fade-resistant for 32 years.

Our client could rest easy knowing that these signs will effectively warn people of the danger of live wires for years to come. And lives will be saved.

How we helped

  • We listened to the client’s key concerns: fading signs due to UV damage.
  • We tested different materials to ensure our recommendations addressed the client’s UV concerns.
  • We discussed installation and attachment to understand the client’s adhesive requirements before production.
  • We produced and supplied signs on time and on budget.
  • Our products meet industry, and international, standards.

Products used in this project

U3 products are designed to be fade-free and UV resistant, which means they need less frequent replacements, reducing the overall lifetime cost of the signs.
