PLAINVIEW, N.Y., April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Wire seals manufacturer, American Casting & Manufacturing, discusses tamper evident wire seals and their various uses.
When it comes to security seals, different types and models perform best for different types of applications. Understanding the different types of seals is the first step to obtaining the highest level of security for your goods. Here is some helpful guidance for understanding wire seals, including their characteristics, benefits, and common uses.
Wire seals are available in either plastic or metal in a variety of sizes and shapes. The wires are made of small diameter, flexible wire.
To seal a wire seal, insert the wire into the seal body. In some cases, a seal press is needed to ensure that the seal is completely secure. The seal press can also emboss the seal with lettering or numbering, which provides an additional layer of security. Other wire seals, however, can be sealed without tools; you would simply pass the wire through the holes in the body and press the seal closed with your hands.
Removing the seal requires tools in most cases. That characteristic makes them a more secure option than other sealing options that do not require cutting tools. There is no way for the seal to be reattached once the wire is cut, which deters tampering.
Wire seals are ideal for applications where seals need to fit through small closures. This makes them a good choice when sealing items like utility meters, chemical drums, valves, and airline carts.
If the presence of the seal is not enough to deter tampering, their single-use nature makes any wrongdoing attempts clearly visible. Having seals that are tamper evident is extremely important for keeping consumers, passengers, and other people affected by security breaches safe.
