This flip placard system is great for most everyday transport applications. With 8 U.S. DOT legends plus a blank page, you can use this for most standard loads. When your cargo changes, just flip to the appropriate placard. The placards included are:
- Flammable Gas, Class 2
- Non-Flammable Gas, Class 2
- Flammable, Class 3
- Oxidizer, Class 5.1
- Poison, Class 6
- Radioactive, Class 7

This system is built for durability in the harshest conditions. The white aluminum back plate has a baked-on polyester finish to resist fading. The legends are corrosion resistant aluminum panels and are held in place with four stainless steel spring clips (replacement clips are available as item # 03185). The base of this unit has rounded corners for easy handling and has a bright white enamel finish.
US DOT regulations require placarding on the front, back and sides of each vehicle. Therefore, most customers purchase this item in multiples of 4. They are priced and sold individually.
TECHNICAL NOTE: The US Department of Transportation's DOT Chart 15, Hazardous Materials Markings, Labeling and Placarding Guide is a terrific full-color compliance guide for placarding and labeling and is available for download from their web site.
