If you are planning to transport bundles of bulky goods over long distances, you should consider using straps to transport them safely. There are many types of strapping materials in the market, and you need to choose the one that is more suitable for your transport needs. However, compared to other strapping materials, woven strapping has unique characteristics that are more effective.
Polywoven strapping is considered to be much stronger and more versatile than metal strapping. Unlike steel strapping, this type of strapping is rust and stain free. Steel can also cause injuries when it recoils from being cut caused by the release of tension, while woven strapping is as user-friendly as polyester.
Woven strapping is typically composed of nylon, rayon, and polyester. This strapping is stronger than steel, and a lot safer to use. It will not harm any handlers, workers, or any bystanders. Also, whether being strapped manually or using a pneumatic tensioning tool, the process is made much cheaper and much sturdier when compared to other strapping methods.
Here are some of the benefits of woven strapping.
- No sharp edges to cut
- Will not harm users
- Will not damage materials
- Can be cut under tension without any possible recoil injury
- It can move without breaking (shock absorbent)
- Easy disposal in standard garbage bins
- Can be applied with sturdy, inexpensive, and portable tools
- Easier to handle than other strapping types
- It’s cost-effective compared to other strappings
- Can be adjusted easily (self-adjusting)
- Reusable and can be tensioned more than once
- Can apply custom-print
You can purchase woven strapping in different widths and thicknesses. However, choosing a strapping depends on what type of product you use with it. The weight, stability, mode of transportation and purpose for strapping are some essential factors to consider when selecting a type of strapping.
