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 a professional regard your strapping needs so you get it right the first time.
