Steel Strapping & Equipment

What is steel strapping & equipment?

Steel strapping is used to secure large and heavy loads to pallets, wooden crates or within packaging. We also sell associated equipment to make using the strapping easier to manage. It can protect expensive machinery, products or other large or bulky items from falls, spills or other potentially costly damage.

Steel strapping works by wrapping (or strapping) a steel band around items or products for shipment or storage. The band is also wrapped around the wooden crate or pallet on which the products are loaded. This steel band is then pulled taut and sealed in place, securing the load against spillage or unwanted movement.
