Tamper Evident Padlock Seals for Catering Carts
TydenBrooks Security Products Europe manufactures plastic padlock seals in the UK, to meet your specific security needs that call for this unique solution.
These tamper-evident padlock seals are ideal for securing atlas boxes, cabinets and catering carts.
The Hawk Lock and Hawk Seal form a two-piece padlock-style locking system with a reusable padlock body and disposable security seals, designed for catering trolleys and atlas boxes. It eradicates accidental breakages and once the seal is broken cannot be re-fed. The Hawk Seal is more economically efficient than traditional security seals.
The TydenBrooks Swan Seal is manufactured in the UK and is specifically designed to indicate whether a locked item has been compromised. The Swan Seal is a cost eﬀective, tamper evident, new generation padlock seal that has been speciﬁcally designed for In-ﬂight Aircraft Carts and Trolleys.
TydenBrooks padlock seals are available with large flags, ensuring you have an adequate print area for security, branding, or other messaging content. As with all our security seals, you can select from a wide variety of colours, barcoding, and QR codes to add extra layers of security and protection.
Adjustable length Cable Seals & Plastic Seals
TydenBrooks Security Products Europe has a wide range of Adjustable Plastic Security Seals and cable seals designed for many applications.
The CableLok is a New Adjustable Length 1.8mm Cable Seal that can offer improved security over a traditional plastic seal. Once cut the cable splays open and cannot be re-sealed. This cable seal has a white printable face which offers a large space for custom print options. The cable seal body is available in different colours.
All of TydenBrooks Security Seals can be customised with your airline logo, barcodes and numbering sequence making them the most customizable and unique security seals available on the market today.
Our AllSeal and Secure-Pull Plastic adjustable security seals are often used on food & beverage carts, duty-free trolleys, hatches, life jackets, fire extinguishers, tote boxes, medical boxes and cabinets. Each of our plastic seals are specifically designed to detect and deter theft or contamination by providing enhanced tamper evidence. Our Adjustable plastic security seals are available in a variety of lengths, tensile strengths, flag sizes and colours.
The AllSeal comes with a tear-off as standard. The Secure-Pull adjustable length seal also has a tear-off option available. The tear-off seals are a popular choice for the food and beverage carts. The seal is placed and documented on a food and beverage cart before it leaves the catering warehouse. The seal number is checked by a flight attendant when it arrives on the plane to assure the catering cart hasn’t been compromised in route.
Tamper Evident Security Labels
TydenBrooks security products Europe manufacture tamper evident security labels made from high quality adhesives. Our security labels are used by some of Europe’s largest commercial airlines for securing various sections of an aircraft or cargo handling areas in the airports.
Security Labels are a popular security seal solution for use on the aircraft doors of grounded aircraft, due to the non-residue material used to make the label. The security label will stick to the surface of the aircraft but when peeled off doesn’t leave a mark on the surface. Once peeled a hidden ‘void’ message appears on the security label and remains there permanently to show a clear sign of tampering. Our security labels can also be used for securing the catering carts and trolleys, duty-free parcels, boxes and aircraft luggage.
Tydenbrooks Tamper Evident Security labels are easy to apply and remove. They are extremely tamper evident and show clear permanent signs of tampering once an unauthorised individual attacks the label, by a hidden “Void / Open” message.
In addition to the hidden “Void / Open” message, all Tamper Evident Labels have an optional security cut feature on the face of the label, which divides the label into smaller parts when it is removed. The design of the security cuts makes it impossible to put back the label in place again without evidence.
While Tamper Evident Labels are generally used as a highly visible form of tamper indication, some labels are used as covert seals using UV coating or printing ink as a means of detection and authenticity.
Tamper Evident Security Bags
TydenBrooks Security Products Europe takes airline security very seriously. We are members of the ICAO accredited suppliers of STEBs bags. We aligned ourselves to the 2007 legislation that restricts passengers from carrying liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) on board.
Our Tamper evident closures protect against various forms of attack including: heat, moisture, freezing, physical manipulation and solvent attacks.
TydenBrooks Security Products Europe manufactures wide selection of reusable security bags. The TydenPak has the leading-edge in the closed-looped movement of items. The TydenPak is a re-usable security bag, designed to replace single use bags or security envelopes.
Manufactured from high grade PVC and featuring internal stitching, reverse zippers and an information window for personalization, the bags themselves are on the leading edge.
The Inflight Thermal Bag is a custom made TydenPak which is designed to secure inflight catering such as hot food or dry ice for drink refreshments. The inside of the bag is insulated with foil to keep catering warm or cold. It uses the TydenClip to secure the zip inside a locking chamber which stops unauthorised access to the contents of the bag.
We not only offer an extensive range of standard stock products. We can also design and produce TydenPaks to suit most applications, special sizes, shapes, colours or styles. All custom requirements are subject to a minimum order quantity.
Fly Safe Scheme Security Bags
The UK and USA have imposed a cabin luggage ban for passenger laptops, large phones, e-readers and tablets on passenger flights from several international airports. This ban is likely to be extended to include some European countries.
This means that electronic devices, larger than mobile cell phones will need to be checked in as they will not be permitted as cabin baggage. There is a concern from passengers that placing electronic items in checked in luggage could result in these fragile items being damaged or stolen whilst in the hold.
Airlines will need to provide a reliable and secure method to accommodate these fragile and costly items with a chain of custody and item tracking for passenger assurance as well as the safe and correct return of these items at the end destination.
TydenBrooks’ FlySafe bag has been designed to ensure the safe custody of electronic and personal items when handed over to ground crew at the point of boarding. The FlySafe security bag enables the safe custody and transport of these items and helps to streamline the handling of electronic items. The security bag is for one-time use and incorporates a tamper evident seal with a unique barcode and numbering. The passenger’s electronic items are placed inside the bag by the passenger and sealed, in the presence of security staff at the hand-over point. The FlySafe bag hence offers full traceability of the electronic items and peace of mind to passengers.
Which countries and airports are included in the ban?
The US flight ban affects the following airports:
Cairo (Egypt), Istanbul (Turkey), Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Kuwait (Kuwait), Doha (Qatar), Casablanca (Morocco), Amman (Jordan), Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)
