Security Marking Company Assets

business equipmentAs a business owner or administrator it’s important to make sure you security mark you’re your assets and equipment connected with your business such as computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones which can be easily stolen or lost.  

Security-marking your business fixed assets can help deter thieves as well as increase your chances of your item being recovered by the police.

Ways to secure your business assets

These include:

Ultra violet (UV) or invisible marking 

UV pens put an invisible mark on your property that can only be seen under UV light. These markers can be purchased from most stationary shops making them easily available and inexpensive.

The drawback of these UV pens is that this form of asset marking is rather slap-dash and it’s easy to forget what marking you used and where it was written. In addition if you just use a simple postcode what happens if your business moves location or opens new offices.

Engraving or etching 

Both methods are suitable for many hard surfaces and can be done using an electric engraving tool or hand engraver.

Although much more noticeable than UV pens this method of security marking is still open to many of the same problems.

ID MARK

ID MARK meets Home Office guidelines for permanent marking and is quick and simple to apply, leaving your assets and equipment permanently marked within a few minutes.

Consecutive numbering for asset management can easily be included and it is an ideal opportunity to make an asset register listing all equipment, at the same time.

ID SILVER MARK

Each security stencil can contain your business name and other key details, including sequential numbering for easier item tracking. They are precision cut by laser into the material and then painted with UV ink to provide permanent ID marking.

Even if the security label is forcibly removed the text will still glow visible if viewed under an UV lamp, as used by the police, to identify your property.
