Seal in the bank
Currencies, coins and securities are sealed with seals by various means. Bags, containers, ATM cartridges and armored trucks are sealed to detect and prevent tampering or theft.
The application of the seal begins with the production of Treasury funds, and throughout the system moves to federal and private banking facilities. Similar sealing measures are used in the transportation of gold, other precious metals, and precious stones.
Banks and delivery companies that serve them use the greatest number of seals to move currencies and coins. The most common containers are custom bags and pouches, often carried by armored trucks.
For safes and other specialized containers, the most common seal used is the standard retractable plastic seal. Choosing the right seal often depends on the type of transport vehicle and the number of marks that need to be placed on the seal.
Our plastic seals mentioned here can be customized with bank name or other information, serial number, barcode, logo etc. The wide choice of colors is also an important feature of plastic tensile seals.
The ATM has a portable cartridge for holding and dispensing cash. There are different designs but nearly all must be sealed once full. The seal is then inspected upon removal and returned to the cartridge refilling and servicing facility. A similar container is used to hold deposited checks and cash. This is also usually sealed.
ATM withdrawal service providers often use wire seals. More recently, new security stickers, similar to those seen on gas-pumping credit card readers, are being applied to money rolls.
Some ATMs also have an internal seal to protect the controllers and main communication panel. These are sometimes isolated and can only be accessed by specialized service personnel, not someone who simply inserts and removes cartridges daily.
In addition, the bank must transfer valuable and sensitive documents and forms, including legal and personal documents as well as negotiable papers such as bonds, cashier’s checks, etc. They are typically packaged in custom bags that use sealed zippers. There are many seals we offer that may be suitable, and each bank or courier has their own preferences. The simplest and most compact seal for bags is the plastic padlock seal. Alternatively, a slightly pulled-up plastic seal can be used.
STORAGE IN SMALL HOUSE
In a bank, both in the common lobby area as well as in the private office area there are drawers, lockers, etc. Usually locked with a key. However, for bulk storage, there is larger space or furniture that is sometimes sealed. A seal allows controlled access and the bank can keep a log or record of exactly when and who was opened. Like shipping, these storage units hold valuable and transferable documents such as blank checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, bonds, and more. They may also contain sensitive company records or private customer records.
Although not commonly seen by the general public, many banks have secure storage in vaults and other locked rooms that hold certain personal items owned by customers who hold the bank’s trust funds. management goods. These items are physically held by the bank, on the bank’s premises. Some of these valuable items require sealing or tagging to ensure they are not removed or tampered with. Although hidden from view and unknown to many, the private banking trusts are a key part of the bank’s unique offerings that have been maintained for centuries.
