The best strapping for your needs depends on the load types and how far your shipments need to travel, including loading and unloading conditions.
Steel strapping is considered the strongest with no stretch so is used on very heavy loads, exceeding two-ton.
Strapping is made out either steel, polyester (PET) and polypropylene (PP) and the strapping we sell are variants of these materials. Steel strapping has been around for a long time but now there are safer, lighter and more weatherproof strappings that are as strong as steel. PET strapping is a perfect example.
If you are moving pallets of bricks or heavy building materials, steel strapping is still the go-to product. If you are sealing cartons and lighter loads then PP strapping is adequate enough.
It’s best to speak to one of our consultants in regards to your strapping needs, so you get it right the first time.
