Steel is the strongest material that is used in the packaging industry. It’s used for heavy duty wrapping and packaging and is best used where no stretch is required. Steel strapping enjoys excellent UV resistance and ideal for industrial use, such as securing heaving items with sharp angles. Steel banding remains extremely popular as no other material holds strong loads as well.
Polypropylene strapping is ideal for smaller loads, but steel strapping and it's corroborating equipment is best when strength is needed that poly strapping simply can’t provide.
If your warehouse straps using steel by hand then investing in a steel strapping dispenser from Ferrari Packaging is a great choice.

Manual hand tools are a great way to help apply steel strapping, they are the most basic option but still widely used. Manual steel strapping tools are the ideal choice for companies who do not need to strap steel often or have limited sources of power.
Tensioners are an easy method of tightening strapping around the load. The tighter the strap the more secure the load will be. This is extremely important when sending your goods in transit.
Use the steel sealer to join the tensioned straps together to ensure the products do not come lose across the supply chain. The cutter is used to cut the correct length of strap. It’s important to invest in industrial steel strapping cutters as they help promote health and safety in the workplace.
Working with steel strapping can be dangerous as it can spring out of position and injure the operator. Steel cutters assist with this problem as their rubber pads hold the strapping in place.
