At Transpack we have a complementary product range to cover all your strapping needs including strapping, and all the accessories you'll need for an efficient operation. All designed to speed up your systems, and reduce wasted time and money.
Nowadays box & pallet strapping comes in a number of materials including steel, nylon, polyester and polypropylene (pp). Most of our strapping is 12mm wide pp (or polypropylene) in varying strengths, although we do now stock steel strapping too for greater strength. All the associated tools we advertise are designed to work with our products.
Strapping is still widely used on many items especially where products on a pallet might otherwise prove unstable (rolled products, for example). Very few boxes are now strapped up as the straps tend to bite through the box, especially when they are used as a carrying handle. We do supply edge protectors to combat this, so if you need to strap boxes we would advise using these too.
Strapping can be secured with plastic or steel buckles where the tension is applied by hand, or with "semi-open" seals where the tension is applied by a tensioning tool.
