ShockWatch Quality Labels Impact Indicators
Deter mishandling and reduce damage related costs to your products. Indicate when the packaging has been exposed to a potentially damaging impact during transit or in storage.
ShockWatch impact labels are tamperproof, mechanically activated devices. They turn bright red when an impact occurs over the g force threshold of the ShockWatch label. Shockwatch Impact Labels have an omni directional impact response.
Selecting the most suitable ShockWatch Impact Label indicators
Available in five sensitivities (g forces), as indicated by the five different colours. Simply match the sensitivity of the ShockWatch Label to the level of impact the product and packaging can withstand. This should be done according to any non operating shock specifications that the product may have. Or, select a ShockWatch Label based on the mass and size of your shipment from our ShockWatch Label Selection Guide below.
ShockWatch Impact Labels visually deter and detect mishandling
If a package has not been mishandled, the circular indicator in the centre of the ShockWatch Label will remain white. If the package has been dropped, the indicator will show full or partial red colouration. Any red in the ShockWatch Label impact indicators window alerts receivers to inspect the package for any potential damage.
