Wire Security Seals

Wire Security Seals

TruSeal wire security seals allow for easy use with the primary focus being on industrial application. The flexibility and low cost associated with using wire security seals makes them a great choice when restricting access to water meters, electricity meters, rail freight, refineries, and gas meters.
They are great for use in hard to reach places and can be made as long or short as required.

Types of TruSeal wire security seals

TruSeal wire security seals can be fastened with lead or TruClip seals, each with their own unique method of application. Read on to find out which is best for you.

Lead Seals

Application

A wire security seal kit fastened with a lead seal is comprised of three items: Lead (which we are going to focus on for this article), sealing pliers, and sealing wire.

These seals are quick to apply and can easily be checked for tampering. Should you wish to personalize your seals our cast carbon steel, chrome-plated pliers can be supplied with non-standard engraved dies bearing characters or numbers of your choosing. This addition allows for characters or numbers to be embossed or debossed into the seal upon crimping.

It’s easy to apply your first wire security seal. The wire can either come on a roll or pre-cut for convenience. If you have the pre-cut wire, you’re good to move right ahead. If you have the roll, remove enough sealing wire for application.

Next it’s time to thread the sealing wire through the application (whatever it is that needs locking) and through one of our 10mm lead seals. Make sure that both ends of the wire have been pulled through, leaving no slack.

Crimp the seal with the sealing pliers, and you are good to go.

Removal

When it’s time to remove the seal, follow proper security checks. Inspect the seal thoroughly to check for any form of tampering. If the seal has been damaged, report or follow the otherwise required protocol.

The wire security seal can efficiently be removed with a sharp pair of cutters.

TruClip Seals

TruClip seals offer an alternative to plastic or the aforementioned lead seals. TruClip seals are made of tin plate and are suitable for use in hot environments. They don’t require pliers for application and can easily be applied by hand. They can also be branded with a longer sequence of identifying numbers or characters.

Application

Thread the sealing wire through the TruClip seal, leaving enough slack to apply the clip seal. Cross the seal wire, close the clip and you are done. At this point it would be wise to capture any necessary details.
