As promised this week’s strapping blog will be all about steel strapping.
Steel strapping is needed for heavy items such as timber or pipes and for when items are strapped together for longer periods of time. Where polypropylene strapping will stretch over time under tension, steel strapping is the strongest strapping available and a much better option.
There are separate tools and accessories for use with the steel strapping. They work in the same way as the polypropylene tools; you have a combination tool that will tension, seal and cut the steel strapping or separate tensioning tools and crimpers. Packaging Supplies also have a seal-less combination tool which will tension, cut and seal the strapping to its self without needing the additional seals.
The most essential item you will need to ensure operator safety when using steel strapping is a steel strapping dispenser. It will safely hold your steel strapping, is mobile and has a tray for all your strapping accessories.
