U.S. Based Security Seals Company, American Casting & Manufacturing, Lists Four Steps to Make Tamper Evident Seals More Useful and Effective

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Custom plastic security seals supplier, American Casting & Manufacturing, lists four steps to ensure that tamper evident seals are useful and effective.

There are many techniques that can be employed to help make a seal more effective, all of which should be backed by real consequences and personal responsibility. Seal users should constantly evaluate and implement measures that will best enhance the seals' worth, while maximizing effectiveness. Here are four steps that can be taken to help make seals more useful and effective.

    1. Layered technology. Combine devices for optimal security--a seal plus
       tape, multiple matching labels, or multiple seals. Adding a unique mark
       or indicator (enhanced visual ID) at time of locking is also a safe bet.
       Segregated sealing can also be employed by having the seal separate from
       the barcode, RFID tag, or other identifiers.
    2. Variations within standard seals. The following measures can be taken to
       ensure seal effectiveness: vary colors and alpha-numeric combinations on
       a rotating basis; vary model, style, or size from time-to-time or
       place-to-place; vary the type of wire for wire seals; and consider adding
       your logo or custom marking symbols for quick identification and source
       of content.
    3. Visible and psychological deterrents. To maximize the security seals'
       effectiveness, affix warning labels for employees on the packaging and at
       point of sealing. Pictures and serial decals can also be applied with the
       seal so they must match. Employees should also be aware of post-use
       employee penalties for unreported anomalies, as well as lost or damaged
       seals. Use unique, coloring, or tagging for identification, or vary the
       wire material, for an added measure of effectiveness.
    4. Vendor-assisted programs. Vendors should manage inventory control, site
       delivery, and provide training for your staff on methods of oversight,
       plus <strike>on</strike> seal inspection and handling procedure.
       Additionally, vendors, like American Casting & Manufacturing, can provide
       custom sub-packaging for locations or individuals that handle seals, and
       inventory control numbers on seal cartons. Users might also consider
       independent, post-use inspection of seals suspected of tampering. This
       can be carried out by the vendor or an independent lab.
