Do you have a package that needs properly strapping? It can seem like a tall order if you don’t have the strapping tools and equipment required. That’s why we supply a range of strapping kits that give you the right materials and the quality tools you’ll need without having to invest in a dedicated full-scale industrial strapping set up.
Let’s look at the basics. First you’ll need the strapping material itself, which could be manufactured from polyester, polypropylene or steel, depending on what you’re using it for. Woven polyester is strong, but also soft. Steel is maximum strength and very heavy duty. It’s important to select the right strapping kit for the bundle or carton you need to strap.
To help maintain the tension and strength of the strapping, you’ll probably want seals or buckles. They work in different ways, but basically they allow you to fix the strapping at certain points so that the tension has a few anchor points. Imagine gift wrapping a present with ribbon, and how it can sometimes fall apart if everything depends on the bow you tie at the end. Seals and buckles help take the strain along the way.
Finally, you’ll want the right tools to help you tension, seal and cut. Our kits come with equipment designed to help you achieve a professional strapping finish, whichever material you’re working with. Some of them also come with added extras such as dispensers, or trolleys with built in trays and tool boxes for accessories. All our strapping kits are designed to make life just that bit easier when you have a strapping job to do.
