Why Tamper Evident Bags?

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 104

Tamper evident bags are made to hold cash, coin, valuable documents, evidence, and anything else that you want to store or ship that needs to be secure.

If you store valuables that are going to be out of your sight for any length of time you want to be sure that nobody tampers with it. They have a security closure that if tampered with, will show evidence of it. Some show a VOID or STOP message if the seal is broken, other tamper evident bags may not have a message but make it very obvious when tampered with.

Tamper evident bags come in different sizes and gauges. The gauge is the thickness. Usually a larger bag such as a 20 x 28 will have a thicker gauge because it will be holding more material. However, small coin bags can also have a thick gauge for example.

Some tamper evident bags can hold 40 - 50 pounds of heavy coins, and usually range in sizes from 9 x 17 to 13 x 22. These are typically 4-6 gauge. Most coin bags also come with handles however, Jetsort coin bags do not. They attach to a Jetsort coin machine.

The machine counts the coins and deposits them into bags attached to the machine. They also come with breathing holes. Breathing holes allow the coins to be dumped at a high velocity without the danger of breaking.

Banks and Casinos are some of the biggest users of tamper evident bags. A casino will break up currency into several bags. They might use a 10 strap bag to hold a brick of cash. A 10 strap bag holds 1000 notes. A soft count technician will wrap 10 straps of cash, 100 notes per strap, and load 10 straps into the bag.

This method allows a cashier to easily see how much cash is in a bag without having to count it. A 10 strap bag made up of one dollar bills holds $1000.

A five strap bag holds 500 notes, and a 1 strap bag holds 100 notes.

A bank cashier can load 10 ten strap bags into a larger, thicker deposit bag knowing that it holds $10,000, seal it, and ready it for transport to an armored car, or vault.

The closure is tamper evident, and there is a serial number and bar code on the bag. If anything happens to that bag once out of the cashier's hands, it can be traced and identified.
