Bolt seals are a versatile and powerful security tool used in several industries worldwide. They are used to offer better protection of containers, trailer door latches, cross-border shipments, and other products.
Here, American Casting and Manufacturing — a family-owned manufacturing business specializing in security seals and related products — explains four bolt seal features that can benefit business’s security.
1. Regulation compliance. A major feature that differentiates bolt seals from other security seals is compliance with local and international shipping regulations. All bolt seals from American Casting and Manufacturing are C-TPAT Compliant and ISO 17712 certified, fully meeting the requirements of a high-security seal.
Bolt seals must go through heavy-duty strength and durability testing to meet these strict standards. This means that your cargo will be heavily secured in transit, while conforming to legal regulations.
Easy application & tough removal. An additional advantage of a bolt seal should be easy application and challenging removal. The application of a bolt seal should take less than 30 seconds, making them easy to apply and secure to any container or door as needed. Despite the efficient application, however, bolt seals are tough seals to break. Their high-security classification means they’re only removable with a bolt cutter, cutting down on the risk of any theft or tampering.
Customizability. Bolt seals are highly customizable in terms of numbering and color. Marked with unique numbering on each seal set, you can easily track the seals journey with accurate record-keeping. The variety of colors that bolt seals are available in mean they match your company’s branding or be used as a piece of a great color-coded security regime.
Specific features. Bolt seals can have a variety of other security features that can be fit to a customer’s needs. For example, there are flexible bolt seals, made for latches that might not line up perfectly but still need the secure protection a bolt seal offers. They’re also useful if there’s any misshapen holes or safety concerns with puncturing tires. Bolt seals can also be anti-spin bolt seals, which prevents the bolt from spinning inside the seal. This can be useful in high-risk areas with higher tampering concerns, as the bolt cannot be physically moved in its sealed position unless cut with a bolt cutter.
Bolt seals are a valuable security tool for any business seeking to comply with regulations and rest easy knowing their cargo is protected by certified high-security security seals. Find out if bolt seals are the right seal option for your business needs today.
