DIFFERENT TYPES OF SECURITY SEALS AND THEIR SPECIFIC ADVANTAGES
With today's concern of terrorism, cargo theft, and tampering, security is a top priority for the storage and transportation of important goods. Security seals are effective tools for deterring and detecting unauthorized access, theft, or tampering. But like with most things, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to security seals. There are different types of seals that perform best under certain circumstances and for different tasks.
Here are different types of security seals and their specific advantages.
Cable seals. Cable seals are durable seals that are used to seal valves, locked doors, and other items that have a small opening through which a cable wire can be inserted. Some cable seals meet ISO 17712 ratings for high security, so can be used for high-security situations like international cargo shipping. Different size jobs require different cable lengths, although excess cable length can be easily trimmed. They also come in different cable diameters, typically ranging from 1.5mm to 5mm.
Bolt seals. Bolt seals are another high-security seal option that are designed with a complex locking mechanism yet are self-locking so do not require tools and are easy to put in place. They have a steel bolt and a tamper-evident body part that are manually attached to form a seal. They are customizable by color, print, and barcoding for additional security layers. These seals are ideal for containers, trailer door latches, and cross border shipments. These heavy duty seals require a bolt cutter to be removed.
Fixed-length plastic seals. Fixed-length plastic seals are among the strongest type of plastic seal, with breaking strengths ranging from 80-135lbs. These seals work exceptionally well for securing cargo for truck shipments. Fixed-length seals are inexpensive, so they are a good option when cost is a concern.
Plastic pull-tight seals. Pull-tight seals are similar to fixed-length plastic seals, except that they come in a wider variety of breaking strengths and are adjustable to match specific needs. For example, pull-tight seals can be used for sealing hazardous waste, fire extinguishers, cash bags, vehicle doors, and more. Adjustable plastic seals are a good option when you have various needs as they are versatile.
Metal strap seals. Metal strap seals are similar to fixed-length plastic seals, except for the material. Their material makes them more durable than plastic strap seals. You can increase the security level of metal strap seals with custom numbering, printing, and barcoding. Like the plastic option, metal strap seals are a good choice for trucking cargo.
Padlock seals. Padlock seals are relatively small seals and are extremely easy to use. They typically are used to prevent doors from being opened. Wire padlock seals are ideal for securing meters and drums, while plastic padlock seals are ideal for securing food and beverage carts, first aid kits, and zipper bags.
