Who Needs Steel Strapping?


If you're someone who remembers everything strapped with steel strapping, then you're old like me.


As a young warehouse worker I remember everything shipping in with steel strapping holding it together.  It was a tedious jobs to prepare a skid for shipping and slightly gator buckle dangerous when breaking a skid down.  Today, stretch wrap has taken over the job of unitizing a pallet, leaving steel strapping for the heavy duty jobs. 


A salesman form the 70's used to visit the offices of Central Jersey Strapping and Supply to sell his wares. His spiel was always the same, "steel strapping will be replaced with plastic strapping, you wait and see".  I believed him and by the 1990's steel strapping was slowly being replaced with polyester strapping, a strong, inexpensive product that was makostrap buckle easy to use, safe and light weight.  Polyester strapping didn't have the same break strengths but it didn't need to. Instead, it offered just enough elongation to absorb energy so instead of snapping like steel strapping would, it just stretched and returned back to its original chemical makeup. 


But even today, polyester strapping has its limits, leaving an opportunity for a product called Composite Strapping to fill the void.


Composite strapping is in itself a polyester strapping but gator strap tensioner utilizes other technologies that increase its strength while controlling costs.  


Composite strapping comes either woven or corded.  Both offer unparalleled strength and ease of use.  Because of its unique wire buckle technology, no metal clips or crimpers are necessary and that saves you and your workers time and money.
