ShockWatch impact labels provide a cost-effective solution to prevent mishandling, reduce damage costs and indicate potential impacts during transit or storage. These indicators clearly show if fragile products have been exposed to damaging impacts. The tamperproof shock labels are activated upon impact, turning bright red.

Detect Potential Impacts during Transit or Storage

ShockWatch shock labels serve as a visual deterrent and detection mechanism. The circular indicator in the centre of the label remains white if the package has been handled properly. However, if mishandling occurs, the indicator shows full or partial red colouration. Any red in the impact indicators window alerts receivers to inspect the package for potential damage.

By prominently displaying red indicators upon impact, ShockWatch labels discourage the careless handling of packages. These tamperproof and mechanically activated labels are designed to stay secure and activate only in response to impacts.

To select the most suitable impact label, consider the non-operating shock specifications and match the label’s sensitivity to the level of impact the product and packaging can withstand. Alternatively, refer to the label selection guide, which considers the mass and size of the shipment.
