Why use a security seal?

Put simply, a security seal shows whether a locking device has been opened, indicating unauthorised access to restricted items including bags, boxes, cases, cabinets, doors or specialist equipment (such as fire extinguishers or first aid kit boxes).

Security seals protect from theft, misuse, third party contamination, and the stowage of illegal goods or indeed people, as immigration control continues to be a major issue.

A consignment of goods or set of documents is invariably handled by many people before reaching its final destination. To save the time and cost of many detailed security checks, the security seal serves as one of just two indicators of the integrity of the contents - the other being, is the container itself intact? The security seal cannot prevent access but acts as an immediate alert if any tampering has occurred, enabling the eventual identification of the responsible party.

Crime today is evolving fast and it is advisable to update security measures regularly. The cost of prevention is far less than the potential losses and time incurred as a result of theft, contamination or other criminal activity.
