Drake Industries manufactures Turn Key custom labels, plates & placards like the red Solar Installation Map shown below. These labels and markings can be manufactured to be NEC and UL compliant.
In the NEC 2014 code, some field applied labels, warning(s), and markings are required to have RED TEXT on a WHITE BACK GROUND. Text should be 3/8 in. (.375) tall and be REFLECTIVE so that the labels/warnings are clearly visible in the beam of a flashlight.
Components of solar home PV systems that might be labeled: solar photovoltaic cells (PV panels), aluminum frames (roof top racks), inverters, charge controllers, storage batteries, utility meters, rapid shut down switches, and wires & cables.
Polyester Thermal Transfer/ Hot Stamp labels like the yellow and red labels shown here require pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. This type of label or decal is available by the roll. These examples have 0.125" radius (rounded) corners which will prolong the life of the labels (stickers).
Solar installation maps direct emergency responders to components of the PV system. These digitally printed maps are available on sheets or produced as a plate. Drake also offers phenolic marking systems/tags. These tags can be manufactured with or without adhesive.
