The Daywalk range of Safety Strapping & Restraints provide reliable restraint solutions for a variety of applications. There are three main options, as follows:

  • The PET System 
  • The Polywoven System
  • CamLocks

PET Strapping

When it comes to value for money, PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) or polyester strapping is the best bet, especially in regard to speed and safety. The PET strapping system is ideal for quick strapping when paired with ITA battery-powered strapping tools. PET break strain is also comparable with that of steel strapping.

Through a friction welding process, the ITA tools fuse the two ends of strap gether. This means there are no clips or buckles when using the PET system.

Daywalk also offers through-life support for the range of quality battery strapping tools through the Tool Service Centre. The national Tool Service Centre is available to assist any customer who may have a question, and tools are serviced and repaired as required. Loan tools are also available so you don’t have to go through any period without access to a tool.

Polywoven strapping

Polywoven or Woven Polyester strapping is unbeatable for its flexibility – both in its properties and its applications. Its break strain is one of the features that makes this a formidable opponent to other straps – it’s stronger than steel! The 19mm hi-vis orange strap has a break strain of 1,100kg. Once the phosphated buckle is tensioned to a correct commercial tension, the strap is there to stay.

The Polywoven strap is fastened by hand to start, then a tensioner tool – either manual, battery, or pneumatic – is used to tension the strap correctly. A proof that the correct tension has been achieved is that the prongs of the phosphated buckle clamp down onto the buckle, locking everything in place.

Because of the woven properties of the Polywoven strap, it can be fed around corners or through lashing points and back on itself – that is, it has sideways flex, thus, making it excellent for difficult-to-strap equipment.

CamLocks

CamLock Tidy Straps are the answer when a warehouse operator is looking for a reusable option in the warehouse. One of the issues in a high-speed warehouse is that an operator might take down a pallet, cut the two or three straps on it, then pick one widget from the pallet. They then have to go and find the strapping gear to be able to strap up the goods on the pallet securely. 

Then, say, five minutes later, the operator receives the next picking list which calls for a widget from the same pallet that was drawn from previously. The pallet is brought down with the forklift again, the newly placed straps are cut (and thrown away), the widget is picked, the strapping gear has to be located once more and the pallet strapped for the nth time.

With the introduction of the Daywalk CamLock re-usable strap, warehouse operators can save a good amount of time and money by reducing the massive waste generated by strapping, cutting, and re-strapping of pallets. It’s as simple as feeding the strap through the CamLock buckle the first time, then simply using the CamLock lever buckle to loosen and tighten the strap as many times as is needed.
