Maritime labelling

Safety equipment as well as escape and rescue routes on cruise ships, ferries, luxury yachts, oil rigs and in shipyards must be clearly and visibly labelled. IMO requirements stipulate that this labelling is obligatory so that, in case of emergency, orientation can be provided and lives can be saved.

Labelling is necessary in many places on board and can be implemented in a wide variety of designs. To make your job as pleasant as possible – and to offer you solutions that involve labelling and signage bringing added value to your ship – we draw on our decades-long expertise in seeing maritime projects through. We carry out our label production and installation operations on a global scale and look forward to working together with you.

Labelling requirements and implementation
The legal regulations for seafaring have been internationally uniform for centuries. Safety-relevant requirements and provisions are specif-ically laid down by the IMO in international agreements such as the SOLAS Convention. These are constantly adapted and substantiated by new resolutions that align with industry developments, and are expanded on a case-by-case basis wherever sensible and technically necessary.
Through cooperation with the ISO, this results in up-to-date requirements regarding ship safety – and marine structures in general – which are mandatory in international waters.
This internationality at sea requires comprehensible and uniform safety signs. The design of the symbols and their application is regulated in the ISO 24409 series and defines necessary sea-based labelling standards for you and us alike. ISO 24409 is the first standard in international maritime navigation that explicitly addresses the labelling of escape routes as well as emergency, rescue and fire protection equipment. This “standard for signs” also defines the symbols that, as safety-related indicators for fire protection, are to be used for marking structural fire protection installations on-board. With IMO Resolution A.1116 (30), ISO 24409 was already established as international law in 2017 – and has globally specified how labelling is to be carried out ever since. Another integral part of on-board safety is continuous, floor-level escape route labelling to show everyone the way to safety, even in the event of smoke development.
