Steel replacement strapping

Narrostrap is the most flexible and versatile of strapping types and is the ultimate substitute for steel banding. Steel strapping is generally supplied in two or three grades whereas a single woven polyester strapping can be the absolute substitute. The crimping tool used to join steel strapping becomes blunt and causes a drop in join efficiency to as low as 40%.

Phosphate buckles, used in conjunction with polyester woven strapping, offers high join efficiency and superior system strengths. Polyester strapping is safe to use, soft on the hands and prevents cargo and deck damage during transit. Narrostrap can be custom printed with customer corporate details and contact numbers, logos, etc.
