When needing to restrain heavy, difficult shaped items – what is the solution?
Polywoven strapping comes in a variety of different sizes, lengths, widths, and breaking strength. Breaking strength is the maximum weight in kilograms a specific polywoven strap can withstand. For example, the Omni-tuff PET Strap 19mmx1mmx900m orange embossed has a breaking strength of up to 722 kilograms. Based on this, strapping either for warehouses or for transporting goods should be purchased in consideration of the weight of the product. In most cases, polywoven strapping serves as a better alternative to steel or cord strapping even when transporting cumbersome equipment.
The Safe Alternative to Steel or Cord
Polywoven strapping is a versatile non-metallic strapping that has proven to be of high strength in spite of its flexibility. Polywoven strapping is the safest alternative to other types of strapping, including steel, composite, cord, and even wire rope, chains, and ratchet straps. Because of its flexible high tenacity polyester yarn that makes it a stronger load-restraint, polywoven strapping eliminates the need for bracing and wood blocking.
Polywoven’s webbing structure makes it very flexible and easy to use, even in confined spaces. It is incredibly safe to use, and its shock characteristics give it the highest quality over other load securing materials. Polywoven strapping has the ability to absorb shock and even sharp objects that keeps the strapping secure even through the most rugged transport situations.
