Color Coding of Security Labels
Color Coding of Tamper Evident Labels is sometimes done to distinguish assets visually in situations requiring quick inspection where it is difficult to scan Security Labels.
Some color coding examples: Color code assets for accounting department green, facilities maintenance department purple, while sales department assets may be color coded red. Choice of colors may also represent the year of asset acquisition and rotate through colors representing new assets acquired each year. Types of assets might be distinguished by color with computer equipment carrying blue security labels, furniture with orange labels and fixtures, black labels.
Black Security Labels are most resistant to fading outdoors. Red asset labels are seen quickly against most machinery and silver tamper-evident labels are least noticeable on most types of publicly accessible assets.
Color coded security labels can be used in conjunction with barcodes, using colors to distinguish scheduled scanning of barcoded items. Individual groups of color coded items may be sorted by department, year of acquisition or type of asset as in the examples above.
