U.S. Based Security Seals Manufacturer, American Casting & Manufacturing, Discusses Optimal Handling and Inspection Procedures for Fixed Length Plastic Seals

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Nov. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- U.S. based security seals and security tape manufacturer, American Casting & Manufacturing, a family-owned manufacturer that produces high-quality customizable security seals, discusses optimal handling and inspection procedures for fixed length seals.

Fixed length plastic seals are most popular in the transportation, logistics, supply chain, and loss prevention industries. These plastic seals are known to be an affordable option that is commonly called a "Car Seal". They are offered in a variety of lengths and breaking strengths to accommodate a range of applications. These tamper resistant seals have one fixed locking position. There are no sliding parts, just a simple 'click' into place for locking purposes. This 'click' confirmation of closure is the push to shut mechanism and one of the top benefits of using a fixed length seal.

Most fixed length security seals are available in a variety of colors and can be branded, numbered, and/or barcoded for extra security. These types of seals are designed to detect and deter theft or contamination. Additionally, fixed length seals are ideal for securing trailer/truck doors, containers, rail cars and equipment. A business should take the correct measures to know whether or not it is using the right type of seals. If a security specialist does not exist within the company, it is their responsibility to work with a reputable manufacturer that can assist with optimal handling and inspection procedures of these tamper evident seals. Here are a few recommendations to follow for handling and management of fixed length security seals:

  1. Become familiar with the sealing and locking procedures. To be used effectively, it is a necessity that a business handling or inspecting fixed length seals should understand a seal's design, features and application. Train all persons who will handle or inspect these seals, regarding an organization's procedures and policies.
  2. Record and verify. Once the seal is properly installed, record and verify the seal number, color, and text. Maintain a seal log where this information can be stored.
  3. Examine visually and physically. Tampering can be readily detected with proper inspection. Inspection should include both visual examination and physically pulling or turning the seal to assure it is properly locked and intact.
  4. Request samples from a well-respected supplier. If the task of choosing the correct seals and executing a strong security procedure seems challenging, consult with a professional directly through the supplier and request samples to test.
