Shurtape Technologies, LLC, a prominent manufacturer and marketer of adhesive tape and consumer home and office products, is pleased to announce the release of Duck Pro® by Shurtape® BR Code™ Scannable Solutions, powered by the BitRip® app. A collaborative effort between the company and Nastro Technologies, a tech startup specializing in asset tracking technology, this innovative product line was developed from the combination of their expertise in industrial adhesive applications and asset tracking technology. The new line offers distinct tapes and labels preprinted with dynamic scannable codes, which facilitate the organization and tracking of essential jobsite information. These scannable codes allow for the seamless connection of physical objects to imperative digital information.
   BR Code is a revolutionary tool that aims to streamline workflow and facilitate smooth communication in construction, remodeling, installation, and repair projects. The BitRip mobile app has been designed to work in tandem with the BR Code tool. Construction professionals and project managers can utilize scannable tapes or labels to identify the exact physical locations of building components and supplies, generate installation and repair notes or voice memos, upload files related to specific components, or link the code to already existing job data.

With the BR Code tool, users can stick, scan, and connect codes with ease. Unlike other scannable codes like QR codes, BR Code’s pre-printed codes on scannable tapes and labels give a more straightforward approach to labeling and tracking. There’s no need to spend time generating and printing custom codes for scanning. With BR Code, users can swiftly grab a label or roll of pre-printed tape, stick it onto a physical object, and scan and connect the code to an unlimited amount of digital information.

All linked content is then sharable and accessible via the free BitRip app. Various data formats like photos, text files, maintenance documentation, PDFs, hyperlinks, video links, voice memos, instructions, GPS location data, and more can all be linked to a single, scannable code.

BR Code line products include scannable duct tape codes for indoor or outdoor use, scannable paper tape codes for multi-surface applications that offer easy removal, permanent scannable labels for permanent indoor or outdoor use on flat surfaces, and heavy-duty permanent scannable labels for flat-surface applications that demand extreme durability and performance.  According to Catherine Chapman, Co-Founder of Nastro Technologies, BR Code and BitRip offer a practical solution to everyday worksite challenges like inventory tracking and safety inspection documentation, and they also have hundreds of other uses in various industries like construction, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and beyond. Scott Sommers, Vice President, Insights and Innovation, Shurtape Technologies, LLC, reports that they have already received feedback from construction customers who have tried the product and are excited by its ease of use. BR Code is significantly contributing to solving real-world problems for customers.
