Today, our company offer you with various seals, among these seals, security seals are popular but there are still many people aren't very familiar with them. In this article, we show you some security seals' applications to let you know about them more.
Security seals are mechanisms used to seal shipping containers in a way that provides tamper evidence and some level of security. Such seals can help to detect theft or contamination, either accidental or deliberate. These seals are of intermediate strength and require a stronger or larger tool and more effort to cut open than indicative seals. Added strength can help avoid accidental breaking or easy entry, without tools. The seals can be individualized to fit the needs of the user. Typical marking includes logos, special texts, white pads for writing by hand, consecutive numbering and 1D and 2D bar codes. There are several technologies in use, including hot stamping, ink jet printing, laser engraving and thermal printing.
Many people still refer to all seals as Security Seals. It is a simple and accepted generic classification. It helps in common language to distinguish this type from seals used for other purposes not related to security and tampering. (ie o-ring seals and the like)
Security locks can be split into two main groups: single-use and reusable. Single use seals are typically made of plastic or metal, and the used material and production technology is the key to their security level. Reusable seals are usually electronic or mechanical rather than just made from plastic, and if purely plastic, only one part is reusable. Electronic and mechanical seals are generally used for the transportation industry, with seal fixed to the back of trucks, trailers and shipping containers. A reusable mechanical or electronic seal can be fitted to the rear or loading doors, extending a cable from itself through fixing points on the doors, and when sealed generating a unique number which is logged. When the door is next opened this number changes, so it provides tamper evidence for the load.
Security seals are used across the world for a wide variety of applications. They are commonly used to secure truck trailers, vessel containers, chemical drums, airline duty-free trolleys and utility meters. Typically they are considered an inexpensive way of providing tamper evidence of intrusion into sensitive spaces. This widespread use is due to several important benefits: they act as a deterrent to tampering or unauthorized access, are tamper resistant and provide proof if tampering does occur.
Given to these, security locks are widely used now. It's wise for you to choose these seals. If you want to learn more about security seals or have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
