ISO 20560 approved tank markers

ISO 20560 is the first standard to provide internationally accepted rules on how and where to identify tanks. They make efficient maintenance and first responder interventions a lot easier. In addition, the tank markers correspond with ISO 20560 pipe markers, and offer fast insight into how installations are connected.

Compliant. Clear. Visible where it matters.

ISO 20560 tank markers clearly indicate hidden substance risks and provide important safety information on the tank itself about personal protection equipment to wear and warnings or prohibitions to take into account. This information contributes considerably to safe and efficient maintenance operations.

In addition, ISO 20560 rules for tank marking also apply to pipe markers, enabling maintenance teams to quickly recognise which pipes to close.

Protect your plant

The tank marking standard is also aligned with the needs of first responders. The standard prescribes two markers: one at eye level, and a larger, second one higher up the tank to provide vital information from a distance.
With visible GHS symbols, NFPA diamond and HIN/UN number, informed decisions can be made faster, enabling first responders to better protect themselves, and your plant.
