An impact indicator is a highly-visible piece of equipment that will set in motion when an impact level exceeds a prearranged level. Mounted on a packaging container, the device visually alerts everyone concerned in the package handling process that additional care is required. Impact indicators can also be mounted inside of packaging, directly on the product it is monitoring. The contents of a package will always experience less impact than the package because of the dampening characteristics of the package. Affixing an impact indicator directly on products allows you to more accurately determine if an impact was damaging to the product.
