The best way to secure goods in transit is by making use of high-security tamper proof security seals. TruSeal has become a trusted manufacturer of world-class products, trusted by some of South Africa’s biggest and best brands. By constantly innovating and maintaining our place at the cutting edge of seal technology, we offer reliable products that provide peace of mind to our varied customers.
Tamper proof security seals come in multiple varieties and offer different types of tamper-proofing – some of which work in conjunction with others to provide a high level of protection. In order for a seal to be considered tamper-proof, it needs to include at least one of the following characteristics:
The seal needs to be manufactured in such a way, or include functionality, that acts as a deterrent to unauthorised entry. This can either be accomplished by having a particularly tough seal or with features such as serial numbering or barcodes that prevent easy seal replacement. This is the first line of defence. If the seal looks like it’s going to be more trouble than it’s worth to break, chances are less likely that criminals will try. Of course, making people aware that protocols have been set in place for scanning at checkpoints also helps to further create an overall sense of tight security, and such efforts will also assist in catching perpetrators.
A strong seal, made to withstand basic attempts at gaining entry without the proper tools goes a long way in protecting your goods. Cable ties can easily be cut through with a knife or pair of scissors while some of our cable seals have stainless steel cable cores (045 cable seals) that would pose a problem for anyone without the right equipment to cut through. Many of our seals have been engineered and crafted to the highest international standards, achieving high-security ratings. Another example is our bulltip seals, which can even withstand freezing and boiling conditions.
The final aspect to consider is indicative seals. These seals are designed to indicate signs of tampering. Seals such as these can indicate when a seal is no longer securely locked. Examples of these seals include T Metal Strip Seals which allow personnel to view the “T” mechanism in the lockbox to determine tampering, and Bulltip Seals which have a protruding indicator to indicate whether they are correctly locked.
