Labelmaster, a manufacturer of regulatory compliance products, says it offers an economical, durable and versatile solution for trucks that are carrying hazardous materials and are required to display a placard identifying the hazard. Spacemaster is a placarding system designed to hold all of the basic hazard classes on a durable frame that is mounted to trucks.
Abe Samuels, Labelmaster’s national sales manager and an expert in transportation issues, is the developer of Spacemaster. “Spacemaster was developed in 1973 to fulfill the U.S. Department of Transportation HM-112 regulation requiring carriers to have placards on all four sides if they were carrying hazardous materials,” Samuels says. “The product grew out of an industry need and has become the standard for all trailers traveling on U.S. roadways. The fact that there are still some Spacemaster placarding systems on the road that were purchased when they first came on the market in 1973 speaks to the product’s durability.”
Labelmaster says Spacemaster offers four customizable frames to meet various vehicle requirements; each frame is constructed of corrosion-resistant fully-formed rigid aluminum. The product’s deep-formed aluminum frame is designed to provide stability and excellent wind protection; legends are silk-screened and printed with UV inks to help protect against fading, chipping and peeling.
Spacemaster’s Duo-Flip System was developed for bulk carriers who must show the hazard class number; in just seconds, you have access to any four-digit number, then flip to display the corresponding placard.
