10 Benefits of Woven over Poly or Steel Strapping

Addison, IL, February 5, 2013 — Anyone who has ever worked with steel strapping knows mishaps can occur when highly pressured bands are cut. While the drawbacks of steel strapping have been widely acknowledged over the decades, until recently there wasn't a good alternative to reliably secure heavy, shifting loads such as lumber.

Now woven strapping is an excellent substitute. It can be as strong as steel and as user-friendly as polyester. In other words, it has all the benefits of alternatives without any downside.

Woven strapping is usually composed of polyester, nylon, and/or rayon. It will meet and can even exceed the break strength of steel strapping. It is also gentler than steel strapping---if it snaps, it will not harm workers or anyone else standing nearby.

The application process also has benefits. Woven strapping is tensioned with a manual or pneumatic tensioning tool, which has a relatively low purchase price and is exceptionally sturdy.

In the event a strapping tool breaks, explore the alternatives before replacing it. B2B Industrial Packaging is one of very few packaging suppliers with a tool repair facility. Customers can send the tool in or drop it off; and have it repaired and returned with a guarantee in days. If the tool is beyond repair, they may have a used replacement tool available for sale. The top 10 woven strapping advantages are as follows:

1. It effectively eliminates strapping-related worker mishaps.

2. It's as strong or stronger than steel.

3. It's applied with inexpensive, sturdy, and easily portable tools.

4. It does not damage products.

5. It's easier to handle (softer and lighter).

6. It's cost effective.

7. It's self-adjusting.

8. It will not rust or rot and is chemical resistant.

9. It can be tensioned more than once and may be reusable.

10. It can be custom printed.

Woven strapping comes in a wide variety of thicknesses and widths. The best choice depends on factors such as the weight and stability of the product being shipped, the mode(s) of transportation, and anticipated storage conditions.

It also offers excellent memory, which gives it superior ability to accommodate shifting loads and the expansion/contraction of extreme temperature variations. It has a greater elongation capability than other strapping and doesn't rust, making it an excellent choice for rail and sea shipments.

Because the fastening system uses a buckle at the joint, woven strapping can have greater system strength than steel strapping. In fact, this strapping offers one of the strongest and most reliable joints of any strapping material.
