How To Choose The Proper Type of Strapping

There seems to be some confusion about the various types of strapping, strapping products and their uses.  Today we’ll try to clear up some of the confusion you may be experiencing related to these products and terms.

 Types of Strapping:

  • Polycord Strapping is a woven polyester and combines strength with shock resistance.
  • Zinc Coated Strapping is ideal for long term storage outdoors.
  • Steel strapping is mainly used for shipping items that are very heavy and also need more protection than poly strapping is able to provide.
  • High Tensile Steel Strapping is very heavy duty and often used on railroad shipments.
  • Stainless Steel Strapping is used for extreme indoor/outdoor conditions. This is premium quality strapping.


Tools to Use with Strapping:

  • Sealer: This is used for closing seals on strapping.
  • Tensioner: This is used to tighten your strapping.
  • Cutter: Used to cut any extra strapping.
  • Seals: These are used for locking strapping into place.
  • Cart: Carts are used for storing and dispensing strapping.
