R M Labels Limited has expanded

We are pleased to announce that due to our increased workload, over the last few months we have been busy recruiting and training new staff so that we can continue to provide the best possible service and the quickest possible turnaround on all orders.

A little bit about our history

Most of you will already know Ray and Linda Thomas, the directors of R M Labels Limited. Ray started R M Labels Limited nearly 30 years ago now.

Ray and Linda Thomas

As a plumber by trade Ray has an in depth knowledge of the industry and with his expertise always to hand, we can help you find the best possible solution when it comes to the identification of pipework. As the business grew, Ray’s wife Linda became involved and they have now been running the business together for over 20 years.

Tash Greenhalgh joined us two years ago and everyone who calls up to

Tash Greenhalgh

place an order will probably already know Tash; we get many great comments from our customers about how she is always so helpful and cheerful when they call in. With the wealth of knowledge Tash has learnt since she has been with us, she can usually answer all your queries, provide you with quotations or process your orders straightaway.

Our new recruits

To help Tash with her workload, Sophie Jamieson has now joined us. If

Sophie Jamieson

you have recently placed an order with us, you will probably have received one of Sophie’s short videos letting you know your goods are on the way, or you may already have spoken to her on the telephone. Sophie is still learning the ropes, so please bear with her if she has to refer to us regarding your enquiries.

Producing your order…

In production we have Harry Oliver and Adam Davies.

Harry Oliver

If you are ordering valve tags, NCR books or any self-adhesive vinyl products such as pipe markers, pipe banding, service labels, etc. these will most likely have been produced by Harry.

Adam Davies

Adam, our latest recruit, works in our busy engraving room producing all of your engraved labels, discs, valve charts and schematic drawings.

Where it’s all done

We now have a large new unit in Haverfordwest where all the production takes place; our registered office still remains in Letterston.

BS 1710:2014 Specification for Identification of Pipelines and Services

All pipework containing water should be clearly marked to show where the water comes from and whether it is potable or non-potable, to avoid

contamination of drinking water. This is clearly described in the BS 1710:2014 specification for Identification of Pipelines and Services. Below is an extract from the BSI (British Standard Institution) website giving an overview of the revisions that came into effect in 2014:

BS 1710 specifies the colours and other information that should be used to identify pipes, ducts and electrical conduits.

As the last version of the standard was published in 1984, it is long out of date. There was a particular need to update the coding system for the water supply industry, where alternative water reuse systems are becoming more popular – and where alterations can lead to contaminated drinking water if the content of different pipes is not explicit.

BSI has now fully revised the standard. Among other things, the new version:

  • Refines the labelling system to aid identification
  • Simplifies identification in building and water systems
  • Introduces a new three-size methodology to accommodate the full range of fluid services
  • Removes ship systems, which are now covered in BS ISO 14726

BS 1710:2014 will support the legal requirement for those who install and use plumbing systems to prevent cross contamination.

More broadly the new standard will be of interest to building designers, operators, users and service installers, and a wide variety of associated industries and activities including waste, water, liquid fuels, gases, and refrigeration.
