Cable seals are tamper evident security seals with body and safety elements all metallic made usually from aluminium alloy. Attachments are made of metallic cables which provide a adjustable closing length and sealing solution. The locking mechanism is also metal made for a strong locking solution.
This kind of metallic wire tamperproof security seals allow for more versatile application, as they have variable closing length limited only by the metallic cable length. An internal locking mechanism prevents the cable from being retracted.
For an increasing security level some cable seals have two locking mechanisms such as Aldlock Duo security seal.
It is very easy to follow the procedure of security sealing your item for tampering evidence with the cable seal: insert loose end of metallic cable through the locking mechanism whole and pull up tight. For removing the seal you will need a cutter for metallic wires.
Metallic cable seals with adjustable closure
A high tensile strength makes the cable seals suitable for a wide range of high security applications. Typical applications for this type of metal seals with flexible metallic cable are including security sealing of transport logistics, cargo trucks, trailers, custom containers, train railway cars transporting commodities, drums, bulk tankers, and usual or valuable goods and merchandise transportation.

Most metallic security seals with metallic cable are classified as security or high security level as to ISO 17712 when they have a metallic wire of above 3.5 mm. All ISO 17712 compliant security seals, like all the security seals, are numbered on the seal body by being unique personalized. This is usually done using laser marking, which cannot be rubbed off before destroying the metallic body of the security seal. This is why they are categorized as High Security Seals.
For the security sealing of the trucks doors usually use the seals with balls for a heavy duty solution as a complementary security solution. They consist of a metal tape with the pierced hole, attached to the section of the casing. When the metallic tape is bent and threaded through the hole, the ball inside the hull section locked it in place. Most type of ball seals belong only to the indicative level of ISO 17712.
