Why should you consider using security bags? What’s the difference between different types of security bags? The answer really depends on your application and how the use of security bags fits within your current security framework.

Here are some points to consider:

Security bags are tough

Wear and tear damages accrued through regular usage can cost a business a substantial amount of money when bags frequently need to be replaced. When it’s toughness you are looking for, getting a long lasting security bag that still retains its protective properties throughout the lifespan of its usage is the way to go.


Not all regular bags are manufactured to be tamper-evident, and in some cases a separate seal often needs to be used in conjunction with a bag in order to observe tampering. TruSeal reusable security bags are, however, designed and made to be tamper-evident and tough so that entry cannot easily be gained through the bag itself. They also provide exceptional resistance against general wear and tear, thereby protecting the contents within. TruSeal manufactures a special range of security bags and padlock security bags for greater layers of protection.


Plastic once-off use Tamper-evident bags are not reusable and need to be replaced once opened as the tamper seal, once broken, cannot be reverted to its original state. Most industries transporting valuable goods or money make use of these bags in conjunction with a comprehensive security platform to discourage and keep track of possible tampering and theft, whether deliberate or accidental. TruSeal Stop-Loss Bags can guard against tampering if attacked by heating or freezing, solvents, moisture or mechanically.

Bar Codes

Cash drop and Stop-Loss Bags can be identified with their individual serial numbers and barcodes. That means that bags cannot simply be removed or replaced. Bags can be electronically identified & tracked further discouraging theft.


Investors, consumers, and clients need to feel confident in a business’s ability to safely transport valuables. Making use of quality security bags, alongside a thorough security plan, can go a long way to inspire trust and discourage any malicious behaviour.
