ShockWatch Label

ShockWatch impact indicators for packaging deter mishandling and reduce damage related costs by indicating when fragile products have been exposed to a potentially damaging impact during transit or in storage. ShockWatch labels are tamperproof, mechanically-activated devices that turn bright red when an impact occurs.

Over 7 million ShockWatch labels are used each year as a highly visible deterrent to product mishandling.

How It Works

Once placed on the package, the indicator will turn red if dropped, thrown or handled roughly with the corresponding threshold.
