A major aspect of profit loss for any retail business is shoplifting and theft, which is why business owners and store managers all over the country are looking for a better security solution in protecting their stock. Providing comprehensive retail securities against the theft of hard or soft products are shop security tags and complete tagging systems.
Here at Maxtag, we have over 20 years of experience in supplying the very latest in security systems to a vast array of retailers, no matter their size or nature of business. Whether it's a local corner shop or a major high street chain – all manner of retailers will be able to benefit from the protection that our security solutions can provide.
To put it simply, security tags prevent shoplifters from stealing your products. They provide initial visible security – some shoplifters may think twice if they see a tag attached to a product – as well as a main security feature that resonates with the frequency given off by a security antenna that sets off an alarm. With such security in place, stores will be able to know as and when, an item is being stolen.
The tags can be easily and quickly removed at the product's point of purchase, which ensures that the only items taken out of the store will be ones that have been genuinely purchased. There are a number of different shop security tags available, designed for different product materials and sizes – for example, pin tags that can be placed on fabrics and harder, more durable tags that can be placed on larger, bulkier items.
These tags provide a practical way of alerting your staff and deterring shoplifters, as well as making it easier to pinpoint theft on CCTV – which has also become an essential component of any modern retail security solution.
The two types of security tags used by retailers are RF and RFID tags. Here are the differences between them and examples of the different environments that they're used in:
