Application Recommendations...

Door Hinges on Containers and Trailers

A determined thief or smuggler will remove hinged doors without breaking the door seal on the container or trailer. For higher security, consider an adhesive security seal/tape placed over at least one hinge on each side. More seals (each with unique serial numbers) for all the hinges provides more security.

Security Labels for Trailer Doors and Cargo Containers

Cargo door security labels are used as an added layer of security for sealing the doors on truck trailers, sea containers, and crates.

A typical application is to apply the adhesive seal across the center gap of the two hinged doors. In this application, the seal serves as the primary security seal, or as a secondary layer of protection to the shackle seal (typically a bolt seal, cable seal, barrier seal, etc).  An alternative application is to apply the adhesive seal over the gap on a hinged door, one seal on each hinged door. For high security applications, determined thieves will remove the set of hinged doors at the hinges without removing the security seals on the shackle or on the keeper bars. Applying a security seal from the door to frames protects the doors from removal.

To provide a strong indication of tampering, our cargo door security labels leave a significant residue containing a repeating pattern of the words OPENED VOID on the trailer door surface when  removed.  If you require a low-cleanup product, please look at our non-residue labels.

Recommendations

Non-Residue Labels for Metal and Smooth Plastic

When removed, film shows a previosuly hidden message of "VOID OPENED" but leaves no adhesive residue on the surface. Suitable for indoor or outdoor application.  Ideal for use on expensive equipment or products that you want to secure without leaving a messy residue, including:

  • Computers
  • Servers
  • Network and phone patch panels
  • Laboratory equipment
  • Laboratory glassware
  • Electronics
  • Evidence
  • External computer hard drives
  • Metal cabinets

Most effective on the following surfaces:

  • Bare metal
  • Glass
  • Painted metal
  • Painted & varnished wood
  • Most smooth plastic
  • Most non-porous surfaces
  • Indoor and outdoor applications

For textured plastics, plastic bags, and powder-coated paint, consider our Plastic-Guard labels.

For finished surfaces, test SecureGuard in an inconspicuous area before committing to use. If the finished surface is not securely bonded to its underlying material, the finish may be removed or damaged when the label is removed.  If a SecureGuard label is left applied to a surface for longer than 90 days, a minimal amount of adhesive residue may remain, depending on the surface.

Tamper Evident Security Tape for Doors and Panels

Tamper evident security tape provides a security seal for panels, door, and other kinds of access points.

Basic security tapes are similar to standard polyester carton packing or box sealing tapes, with additional messages or a "candy stripe" pattern printed on the surface.  Because it is difficult to realign two pieces of tape after they have been separated by cutting, they provide a basic indication of tampering.

To protect higher value products, we recommend tapes with additional security features, such as serial numbers and hidden messages that are revealed in the residue left behind when tape is lifted or tampered.  Our premium security tapes will show tamper evidence by self destructing, leaving words or symbols on the package and in the security tape itself.

For access panels and hinged doors, you can add a layer of security by placing tape over a closed door and its adjoining surface.  Applying tape over hinged sides of panels and doors provides even more security.

Acetate Security Tape and Labels

Acetate tape and seals are frangible, which means they tear easily when removed. The “broken seal” feature of acetate signals tampering. After application, acetate material can be removed, but it is designed to tear into multiple pieces. The serrated edges (a sawtooth pattern) enhance the frangibility and security.  Chemical tampering causes the solvent-sensitive inks to dissolve and smear.

When removed, acetate tape and seals do not leave any messy adhesive residue, but the film will break into several pieces.  The low price of acetate security tape and seals makes this product one of the most affordable options we offer.

Acetate tape and seals are often used to detect tampering with various containers or bare metal access panels.

If applied to a reusable container or surface, use isopropyl alcohol to soak and dissolve the remaining acetate pieces and adhesive.  If applied to unfinished metal, a razor can be used to scrape the remaining pieces, then clean the surface with alcohol.

Metal Band Security Seals

Metal band seals are fixed length seals, which create a 3 inch loop.

Constructed of tinned galvanized steel, these seals are used for trucks, trailers, railcars and a wide range of other applications.  Metal band seals are durable in extreme weather conditions.

Our metal band seals feature a unique pre-assigned consecutive serial number and they are embossed with the word "SECURED".

Metal band seals come in two varieties: flat band seals and globe band seals.  Flat seals are intended for low security applications where economy and convenience are top priorities. Globe seals have a globe-sheaped locking mechanism, along with a higher break strength (100 lbs) compared to the flat seals (50 lbs), and require a hand tool such as scissors or tin snips for removal.

Recommendations

Adjustable Plastic Seals

Plastic seals are used to mechanically secure a variety of containers. Typical applications include truck doors, trailer doors, railcar doors, totes, valves, coin bags, inner drum bags, crime scene evidence storage bags, and any container with a hasp or loops.

All of our seals are suitable for indoor or outdoor applications.  All seals have unique serial numbers, and some have bar codes.

Adjustable plastic seals are applied by threading the tip of the strap into the eye of the self-locking mechanism, then pulling the strap through to adjust for length and desired slack.  Depending on which seal is used removal can be done manually or may require scissors or snips.

Some seals include a tear off tab for ease of seal removal. Tearing off the tab destroys the seal locking mechanism so it cannot be re-used.

Adjustable plastic seals are intended to indicate tampering for low and medium security applications. For higher security projects requiring a barrier seal, please see our selection of cable seals.
