Frequently Asked Questions

Alert Security Products - FAQ

Which Styles Of Dual Compartment Bags Are Available?

Dual Compartment Bags

Our two compartment security bags utilize two separate sections. The cash or valuables are in a compartment secured by the Alert Security Seal maximum security adhesive closure and the deposit slip and other non negotiable items are in a separate compartment with standard security adhesive closure.

Three Types or Styles of Pouch Bags:

Bottom Pouch Bag – The Alert Security Bag Style
Primary Packaging manufactures a bottom pouch bag design that adheres to the preferred design of the largest cash collection banks. This style of construction places the document pouch below the cash compartment. With this design, the cash compartment can be inspected from either side.

Side by Side Pouch Bags
Primary Packaging does not manufacture this style of bag. The bottom pouch bag is the more widely used construction.

Back Pouch Bag
Primary Packaging does not manufacture a back pouch bag. We discontinued the back pouch bag because this bag style has an inherent security flaw. Document(s) can be removed from the back pouch and a cut then made through the film thereby allowing access to the cash compartment. After cash is removed, the removed document(s) can be replaced to cover the cut and obscure the tampering.

What Is The Minimum Purchase Quantity?

Minimum Purchase Quantity

The minimum purchase quantity is one (1) Case or one (1) Pack of any product.

Can I Combine Quantities To Determine Pricing?

Pricing – Combining Sizes

Can I combine a number of sizes and use the combined total cases for pricing?
No. Volume pricing breaks are only applicable to units of the same product. You must reach the specified quantity break for each item to qualify for the volume pricing for that product.

How Does The Pricing Of Alert Security Products Compare To Other Products On The Market?

Pricing Comparison Prices for Alert Security Bags Compared to Competing Products Occasionally, the pricing may appear to be higher than competing products for the same bag size. There are three (3) important considerations that should be analyzed in comparing pricing.
  1. It is best to compare pricing based on the price per individual bag. Many companies package security bags in small quantities in order to give the illusion of a low price. Simply divide the case price by the bags per case to determine the cost per individual bag. Our pricing chart provides this breakdown for you. Contact us if you wish to receive a copy of our pricing chart or other product literature.
  2. The second consideration in pricing comparison is the quality of the security bag. All security bags are not equivalent:
    • Lower cost bags may be made from thinner or lower strength materials. Alert Security Bags are produced from a heavy gauge, coextruded film that optimizes seal strength, puncture resistance and overall film strength.
    • The tamper evident tape on low cost bags will not provide the high level of security demonstrated by the Alert Security Seal. Many of our competitors use inexpensive hot melt adhesives as their closure; however, as a sole source of protection, this adhesive is easily violated by exposure to temperature and/or solvents. The Alert Security Seal provides its positive indicating ALERT/VOID message under these conditions. For additional information regarding the Alert Security Seal, click here.
    • Low cost bags may have very thin seals at the sides of the bag. Alert Security Bags have wide inset seals providing strength and the best evidence of tampering.
  3. Finally, Primary Packaging is the manufacturer of Alert Security Products. In evaluating the balance between product quality and pricing, please consider the advantages of working directly with a manufacturer who can quickly and effectively address your specific needs and issues.
