Padlock type seals are a type of security seal that are designed to secure various items such as luggage, storage containers, and equipment. They are named after their appearance which resembles a traditional padlock. These seals can be made of various materials, including plastic, metal, or a combination of both.
Padlock type seals are used to prevent unauthorised access and tampering of items. They provide a visible indication of tampering as they cannot be removed without breaking the seal, making it evident that the item has been compromised. These seals are commonly used in the transportation and logistics industry to secure shipments and prevent theft or contamination. They are also used in the healthcare industry to secure medical equipment and medications, and in the retail industry to secure display cases and storage areas.
