Steel strapping has a strong tensile strength and it firmly secures items like boxes when shipping. Its ability to endure humidity, heat, and ultraviolet rays as well as retain tension makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Steel straps come in various alloy combinations that offer different levels of strength and elasticity. Staples® stocks a variety of strapping and other shipping supplies.

Steel Straps Come in Various Sizes
The thickness of the straps affects the overall strength of the metal strapping. Thicker options measure 0.02 millimeters. Other straps that reach 0.017 millimeters are robust enough for office bundling and unitizing needs. Regular tensile steel suits applications like packaging books, glass panes, and parcels. They are also effective in construction applications like bundling pavers and bricks.

Bands made of high tensile steel offer optimal strength for heavy-duty uses like securing metal rods for road, train, or even sea transit. Strapping also comes in three specific widths: 1/2, 3/4 and 5/8 inches. Each width is compatible with specific bundling tools.

Joining the Steel Straps
The straps are lightweight and come in oscillated coils for convenient application and portability. Some metal banding options are hand grade. There several ways to join the strap around the luggage after tensioning. The first is by applying closures which include buckles and seals. The second option is by seal-less joining, this method is usually quick. Another way includes welding or hammering the strap to seal.

Steel Strapping is Durable and Eco-Friendly
Strapping coils that have been waxed and coated can remain intact after exposure to various corrosive elements. Galvanization is another joining option where the strapping is coated with a layer of zinc to resist corrosion. This method is suitable where items will stay in storage or transit for long periods. The strength offered by steel bands also makes them ideal for use when bundling hard and sharp objects. The strapping can stay intact on heavy and stable loads for long journeys, even when the objects are often unloaded and transferred severally en route to the final destination.

Steel is one of the most recyclable materials worldwide. Because of its many applications as well as ease to recondition, the material offers minimal environmental impact. Its composition of common natural earth minerals also means it is safe for continuous use, even for future generations.

What Is the Right Protective Gear to Use With Steel Strapping?
Safety shears help control the strap when cutting. Other personal protective wear like eye protection, steel-reinforced protective boots, and gloves are also essential.

How Can You Store Strapping?
The strapping coils are best kept where they will remain in their coils for easy use every time. Wheeled strapping carts are a nice option because they enable easy portability. The carts are also convenient because they usually include a toolbox attached.

What Are some Useful Strapping Accessories?
Steel strapping dispensers enable easier and faster strapping. Cutting tools and tensioners are also essential for safe and effective strapping. Sealing tools like crimpers or welding gear depend on the type of joining.
