Tiltwatch

ShockWatch Tilt Indicators detect and record unacceptable tilting on goods that must remain upright.

Removal of the adhesive backing activates the devices. Once applied to the shipping container, the product cannot be tipped without indisputable evidence of mishandling. The TiltWatch and the TiltWatch Plus are reliable and economical solutions to prevent damage to goods in transit.

TiltWatchTM

This indicator turns red if the product it is affixed to is tilted or completely upended—but remains unaffected by movement due to normal handling conditions and aircraft take-offs.

TiltWatch PlusTM

This indicator provides 360° monitoring—indicating the exact angle of tilt or whether complete overturn occurred.

The ShockWatch Program

A key element in the success of the TiltWatch and TiltWatch Plus is the supporting program of companion tools. Companion labels, alert stickers, and caution tape affixed alongside the Tilt Indicator products are a highly visible notification to alert handlers that the product is being monitored and provide directions to receivers in the case of mishandling. When combined with the companion tools, the TiltWatch and TiltWatch Plus products promote quality and accountability in the shipping and handling of goods.
