Australia’s Most Popular Security Seals

After supplying Australia with millions of security seals in 2023, it is time to uncover the country's security seal preferences. We are not going to enlighten you on what your security seal colour preference reveals about your personality, but hopefully, if you are considering what security seal to use next, these will make your short list.

Looking back at 2023, the security seal that made the biggest splash was the recently introduced Kappa Seal. This seal ranked second behind the Sky Seal, regarding overall sales volume in the adjustable length security seal category.

The selection was based on order volume and has been split into the five most common security seal classifications.

Australia’s Most Popular Security Seals

Adjustable Length Plastic Seals

An ‘’Adjustable Length Plastic Seal” is a type of seal that is adjusted via pulling the seal’s tail to the desired locking position.

This seal keeps growing in popularity and has finally taken the top spot. White being the most ordered colour in the Sky Seal range.

Special mention: Kappa Seal

Last year we listed S-Grip in this section, and it continues to be one of the most popular security seals, especially with those looking for an adjustable seal with a wide tail that provides extra strength. The Kappa seal gets a special mention this year due to enabling super quick application and removal. This is due to the well-designed tear feature for seamless removal. 

Bag Security Seals

A Bag Security Seal is used to seal a security bag by being inserted into the bag’s security chamber. The seal needs to be broken prior to removal thus providing tamper evidence.
