Palletized products in cargo are vulnerable to movement and slipping, which can result in damage. Strapping bands/ belts prevent movement and the resulting damage to the products. The process of pallet banding or strapping involves using plastic or metal straps to bundle together unit products or palletize them.
Various industries ranging from large industrial equipment supplier to e-commerce fulfilment facilities, extensively use strapping to secure cargo loads. Due to this reason, there are several kinds and grades of strapping materials available in the market.
Cargo is strapped with strapping belts manually, using a handheld tool or an automatic strapping machine. The strapping belt is wrapped around the cargo units and pulled together. A load buckle or lock is used to fasten and secure the ends of the strapping belt around the packaged products. Excess strapping is removed after securing.
Prevent Damage to Products Due to Movement with Strapping Bands
Strapping bands provide a robust, resilient and quality solution for securing cargo products of all sizes, shapes and types. They are shock absorbent, lightweight and re-tensional, offering protection from damage during shipping.
There are different types of strapping materials available with varying strengths, classifications and grades. Understanding these grades and choosing strapping material for a particular type of cargo is crucial for adequately securing cargo loads.
