We offer high quality steel strapping at affordable prices
Steel strapping is becoming a lesser-used option, but has historically been utilized in mostly railroad-shipped applications. It is required by the government (Association of American Railroads) for railroad transport where the load is not held within a container.
There are a few AAR-approved PP or PET strapping options available, so if you prefer one of these, inquire with us about your options! Few places use steel for packaging that cannot use PP or PET strapping. Most steel strapping is made of stainless steel.
When bent at a right angle, like wrapping around the edges of a pallet, for example, steel strapping loses half of its strength.
If you are looking for high-strength strapping, steel strapping is a must. Steel strapping is the strongest type of strapping available and is known for its sturdiness, making it perfect for heavy loads and particularly well suited for packing and shipping industrial equipment or building materials.
Things to consider:
- Safety Hazards - High breaking strength and sharp edges require workers to exercise caution and wear personal protective equipment at all times
- Difficult to manipulate due to non-flexible design
- Too difficult to move and manipulate
- "Step back" when cutting under tension
- More expensive compared to alternatives such as polyester
- Potential for rusting
- Will not accommodate loads once applied and tape may deform over time
- Sharp edges may damage product during shipping
Strapping, also known as pallet wrapping, bundling or strapping, is the process of applying straps to hold items together. Strapping is used in many different industries and is often used when shipping large items to contain them during transit. Strapping is done manually or with the help of a strapping machine such as a strapping dispenser or a coreless strapping tool.
strapping comes in many different types and materials. When deciding which webbing to buy, it's important to consider things like the intended use and the weight of the load you're strapping. For example, if you are shipping large industrial goods, you will need a stronger type of strapping.
With so many different options available, it can be confusing to decide which type of harness is best. We've covered some of the most common strapping styles and their benefits so you can make the best decision.
