Strapping is the most practical invention since mail order has existed. It stabilises large cardboard boxes and ensures pallet goods stay in place, without requiring a lot of effort to apply.
And the best thing about our range of strapping: there are sealing straps to match each and every package – packages big and small, full packages or even an entire machine!
Strong strapping secures goods for transport
We want your shipments to reach the recipients undamaged. That’s why we offer strapping to secure packages for transport in our online shop. When strapping, the goods to be transported are wrapped in a sealing strap, tensioned using a strapping tool, and secured in place. Once secured, pallets and packages can no longer slip, tip or fall from the stack during transport. To ensure that strapping can withstand the strains it is subject to, it is made of heavy duty steel, composite materials or plastic. They are available in different lengths, thicknesses, widths and strength classes. But how do you know which material property suits which type of shipment?
The goods to be shipped determine the strapping
Depending on the size and weight of the packages, lightweight plastic straps made of polypropylene or polyester, elastic composite straps or steel straps with maximum tear resistance are used. Also used for sea freight and heavy loads, steel strapping is also ideal for sharp edged and bulky goods. A highly elastic composite material is suitable for heavy loads. The fibre/plastic composite has a similar load bearing capacity to steel, and composite strapping also optimally adapts to bulky goods. And what about plastic? PET strapping is extremely break-proof and has no sharp edges. Polyester straps fit heavy goods due to their high strapping capacity – similarly tear resistant to, yet five times lighter than, steel strapping. For parcels and other light goods, PP straps meet all requirements of standard sealing straps.
Let’s return for a moment to the sharp edges: KAISER+KRAFT stocks a range of items for edge and surface protection of your shipping goods. Choose from a wide range of profiles, trims, brackets, corners and other supports.
Tensioning, sealing, shipping. We have professional tools – available in sets as well
As described above, you’ll need special tools and equipment for strapping at a professional level. At KAISER+KRAFT, you will find dispensers, tensioning and sealing tools and seals for every type of strap material. Depending on your needs, you can purchase them individually or as a strapping set. One of these will ensure that you’re properly equipped – or is there more packaging material you need? As you’re already aware: there is always something left to get. Talk to us, we will be happy to advise you and help you further.
