What are asset labels?

Asset labels or tags can provide an incredibly efficient way to monitor a company’s physical assets. When combined with a tracking program, these labels can form the foundation for a smooth process of repairs, maintenance and inventory control.

What can asset labels be used on?

Asset tags can be used on a whole host of physical assets. Physical assets are generally defined as moveable assets, which includes furniture and equipment that is not part of a building or fixed infrastructure – for example, laptops and other office equipment are considered moveable assets.

Fixed assets are also known as infrastructure assets and generally remain in a fixed location during their entire lifespan. Signs, lighting or any equipment that is permanently fastened in place is considered to be a fixed asset.

Asset labels can be used on both of these types of physical asset to track maintenance and repairs or to help you keep on top of organisation.

What types of asset labels are there?

Foil labels are the most common type and are often used for equipment, including computers and machinery. These labels are made of durable anodized aluminum that is still flexible enough to sit firmly on uneven surfaces.

Polyester labels are available with an over-laminate that protects the graphics and text from scuffing. Therefore, this type of label is perfect for use in offices on typical fixtures, furniture and computer equipment.

If your equipment is either outdoors or in a harsh indoor environment, durable aluminium labels will be the solution for you. These labels are often designed to withstand knocks, abrasion, heat and chemical damage.
