Selecting the most suitable ShockDot impact indicators
Available in five sensitivities, as indicated by the five different colours – simply match the sensitivity of the ShockDot impact indicator to the level of impact the product and packaging can withstand based on any non operating shock specifications that the product may have or select the ShockDot impact indicator based on the mass and size of your shipment from our ShockDot Selection Guide.
If a package has not been mishandled, the circular indicator in the centre of the ShockDot will remain white. If the package has been dropped, the indicator will show full or partial red colouration. Any red in the ShockDot impact indicator window alerts receivers to inspect the package for any potential damage.
ShockDot visually deters and detect mishandling
The ShockDot impact indicators mount to the exterior of packaging of a shipment and visually alerts everyone involved in the handling of the package that additional care is required. If mishandling occurs during the shipment and handling cycle, the ShockDot serves as a permanent record of mishandling.
Economical solution to reduce your damage related costs
ShockDot impact indicators offer an economical solution to prevent damage during product transit.
Indicate when mishandling has occurred with ShockDot impact indicators
The ShockDot impact indicators are not indicators of damage, they are an indicator of mishandling. If a shipment arrives at a destination with an activated ShockDot, the receiver should immediately note any visible damage to the shipment, open the package and inspect for any damage to the goods. Using ShockDot impact indicators to determine if any damage to the product may have occurred requires in house drop testing to ascertain the ShockDot which is most suitable. This may lead to reducing the number of inspections that may have to be performed by the end user.
