Barrier Security Seals
Barrier Seals are heavy duty seals typically used on the keeper bars of truck trailers, shipping containers and rail cars. These seals delay the process of entry since they cannot be removed by hand and require the use of bolt cutters or disk cutters. Cable Seals and Bolt Seals are also considered as barrier seals, but they can be removed in seconds compared to a metal locking bar configuration, which can take 15 minutes to remove.
Barrier Seals for Cargo Containers and Trailer Doors
Barrier seals provide the maximum protection for shipping cargo via trucks and containers. Barrier seals are installed on the keeper bars of the shipping container doors, across the seam where the two doors meet, securing both doors. They are easy to install and require no special tools for installation, however they are very difficult to remove.
The barrier seals resist physical attacks from saws, cutting sheers, bolt cutters, levering by crowbar, impact by hammer, etc. These seals can only be removed using a cutting wheel, which normally takes about 20 minutes. Barrier seals are a one-time use product. For added security, all of our barrier seals have matching serial numbers on key components.
Typical Application Photos
Shipments that cross international borders usually require a seal which is rated as High Security. Bolt security seals are very durable and intended for securing latches and hasps in high security applications, such as:
- Shipping containers
- Trucks and trailers
- Other heavy-duty sealing applications
All of our bolt seals qualify as "High Security" seals, comply with ISO 17712, and are C-TPAT compliant. Our bolt seals have unique serial numbers which can be recorded on shipping documents and in tracking systems, and checked at various points en route for added security.
Our bolt seals are offered in multiple colors, which allows for color coding. Customized bolt seals provide added security. The stock bolt seals (red, blue, yellow) can be customized by imprinting the bolt only. Or we have yellow bolt seals which can be customized on the bolt and barrel.

Cable Seals for Cargo Containers, Trailers, and Hasps
Cable seals consist of a cable and a locking mechanism permanently connected to one end of the cable, allowing the other end of the cable to be fed through a hasp or wrapped around a bar, and then back into the locking mechanism to create a closed and secure loop. After the locking mechanism is engaged, the cable seal can only be removed with a cable or bolt cutter.
Adjustable cable seals allow the cable to be positioned in the locking mechanism at varying lengths in order to remove unneccssary slack. Fixed-length cable seals are not adjustable, and may need to be routed around keeper bars multiple times in order to eliminate slack.
Shipments that cross international borders usually require a seal which is rated as "high security." To qualify as a high security seal and comply with ISO 17712, the cable seal diameter must be a minimum of 3.5mm; this is the minimum cable diameter required to pass the shear test of ISO 17712. NovaVision's certificate of conformance for the ISO 17712:2010 standard for cable seals is available here.
All of our cable seals are manufactured in facilities that are C-TPAT compliant. All of our cable seals feature serial numbers for an additional level of security.
