Twist seal Meterseal 071 is a rotary lock seal offering sealing security solutions used mainly in securing equipment and control devices from activity domains like electricity, gas, oil and fuel transport and/or general merchandise. Applicable as a substitute for ancient lead seal.
Meterseals are disposable tamper-evident security seals which restricts access to closed objects, for security acces purposes, for those who do not have clearance to interfere.

Meterseal (Пломби за топломери, Metara brtve, Σφραγίδες ασφαλείας του μετρητή, Méteres biztonsági plombák, Sigilli di sicurezza per contatori, Meter-Sicherheitsdichtungen), like Meterseal 071, are used with electric or gas or water meters and usually molded in polycarbonate. The transparent body of the seal means that the locking mechanism is visible and can provide clear indication of tampering.
Counter seals consist in two pieces of plastic through which the metallic wire is threaded manually.
Meterseals can withstand exposure to heavy sunlight, extreme weather like rain and ice, and a wide range of freezing temperatures.
Designed for only a single use, they are destroyed when removed. A metallic wire is used for increasing the security strength of the seal. Also a plastic coated metallic wire is available for special applications like the ones when a electricity spark is forbiden on very flamable enviroments.
Some twist seals contain components which glow under ultraviolet light, allowing the seal to be easily located in darkness.
Meterseals are client personalized with company logo, serial number and barcodes laser printed on them without the possibility that the print will be erased accidentally or by theft purpose.
Twist seals are not designed to solve all the security problems. The effectiveness of a security seals is strongly dependent on the proper protocols for using them. These protocols are the official and unofficial procedures used for seal procurement, storage, record keeping, installation, inspection, removal, disposal, reporting, interpreting findings and training. With a good protocol, a modest seal can provide excellent security. On the other hand, a sophisticated seal used poorly may be worse than useless if naively trusted.
