Sometimes simply better.

Steel strapping is the classic method of securing loads – and despite the numerous advantages of plastic strap it is sometimes the better solution, even today. For example, when strapping very heavy loads or if the items have particularly sharp edges which might possibly damage a plastic strap.

Consequently, the question of 'plastic or steel' cannot be answered in general terms but only with careful examination of the applications in operations.

In the case of loads where circumference tends to decrease steel straps are not to be recommended though: Owing to their low elasticity they are unable to restore their original length – tensioning force declines considerably or even disappears completely.

Cyklop supplies steel straps in widths from 9 to 32 mm, plus a comprehensive range of strapping devices: From the simple manual tensioning tool to the convenient automatic strapping machine nothing is left to be desired in terms of customers' requirements.
