The Globe Barcode Label represents the latest in technology. Heat-sealed to the garment, it allows us to reduce the label size, import all information to eliminate hand marking, and offer barcoding as standard. When tested for durability as required by NFPA, this printed label visually outlasts traditional label stock to offer the fire service a more durable, user friendly, lasting source of information.
The barcode at the bottom of the label stores the unique serial number of the garment. By installing the one-dimensional bar code directly onto the label at the time of manufacture, we have provided an easy interface with PPEtracker.com. The barcode can be used with most common scanners, eliminating the need for expensive scanning devices or external software for a specialized tracking system.
If the scanner cannnot read the code, the user can scan a configuration code to activate scanning of this type of code, which is called "Interleaved 2 of 5" or "I 2of5." The activation code is usually labeled as Interleaved 2 of 5 any length.
