Floor identification indoors in warehouses could seem to anyone one of the simplest way to locate products, however it is one of the most complex ones.

Forklifts, pallets and personnel need to drive and walk over these locations and consequently will eventually damage them.

RackID has worked hard over the years in the research of various solutions to ensure the locations remain intact for a long period of time.

One solution is to secure a 2mm frame on the floor and place a label inside the frame. The label is also laminated to ensure long lasting durability. Apart from the laminated label, a high wear resistant transparent plate (also 2mm thick) is placed inside the frame, protecting the label.

Another option is to use the highly durable and wear resistant photo-anodized aluminium product.

This product has been used in various military sites in the US, Europe and South America and more recently in various defence logistics sites Australia wide. The product comes in a very thin aluminium base with an aluminium insert. The aluminium base ID is designed for warehouse floors and the (yellow) injection moulded base used for outdoor applications. The aluminium frame is affixed to the floor with a very strong double-sided tape adhesive. A thicker (1.6mm) aluminium can be adhered directly on the floor. The yellow moulded base is affixed to the bitumen by the use of a strong epoxy based adhesive (similar product used on road reflective “cat-eyes”) or melted onto a bitumen pad.

The ID is produced on photo-anodised aluminium – the durability coming from its image – which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminium, providing corrosion, sunlight, abrasion, temperature and chemical resistance. Its unique, photographic imaging process creates ultra-high resolution graphics and variable information – including machine-readable barcodes.
