Security in Retail Outlets

Magnets are widely used in in retail outlets to curb shoplifting. Commonly called acousto-magnetic tags, they will alert the retail staff by triggering an alarm if anyone tries to leave with merchandise for which they haven’t paid. After purchase, the magnetic tags are removed allowing the shopper to exit the shop without any incident.

Gas Pump Safety

Magnets allow for otherwise catastrophic incidents at gas pumps to occur uneventfully. Drivers sometimes drive away from gas pumps without first letting the station attendants remove the hose from their tanks. This results in the hose breaking free from the pump. Ordinarily, such an incident would be the cause of a catastrophe, as gas would spill all over and likely result in a massive fire. Magnetic strips, when incorporated to the design of gas pumps, allow this accident to occur without the usual dangers

Door Locking Systems

Magnetic strips also plays a huge role in introducing doors that offer enhanced security. The magnetic strip in the mechanism prevents opening by requiring a special password. The lock design is used in many instances where results, smooth finish, and security are important. The locking system can only open if a card with the right password is inserted.
