Strapping Solutions

Composite strapping

Safe, stronger than steel strapping

When shipping timber and/or construction materials you often need to bundle and secure highly irregular and heavy items such as glass panels, oversize boards, (round) timbers and trusses. Cordstrap is the strongest of all non-metal strapping systems, and is even stronger than steel strapping.


  • High retained tension
  • Shock absorbent
  • Non-abrasive & rust-proof
  • Fully certified
  • System strengths of up to 3,700kg

Shock absorbent & high tension

Absorbing impacts without loss of tension

When you ship a product such as round timbers you need to keep in mind how your product is handled before it arrives at its destination. Products will be lifted and put down multiple times. Road conditions, or movement at sea, are often far from smooth.

A product that retains tension and absorbs impacts is key. Cordstrap is made of high tenacity polyester fiber. This means that Cordstrap will work with your load, absorb impact and retain its original shape.

Non-abrasive & rust-proof

Because Cordstrap is not abrasive and does not rust, it is an ideal solution for soft timber, glass and coated products.

Cordstrap is non-abrasive and the steel buckle is always protected by the strap, which means there is never any contact between metal and your products. Our high quality steel wire buckles are galvanised and will not rust.

Cordstrap can be applied on product with sharp edges. When edges are razor sharp we recommend some form of edge protection to protect the strap. We provide plastic edge protectors, however a piece of cardboard will do the trick as well!

Dynamic cargo solutions

Prevent any slip in the buckle

If you transport your steel and metal goods on flat racks, rail cars or on board ships, certain cargoes can behave dynamically during transport. For such cargo we offer a solution that combines Cordlash polyester lashing with our Dynablock buckle.

The specially designed grooves in this buckle hold your cargo securely in place even when in motion.

Dynablock® provides unrivaled safety and security and is fast and easy to apply. It is the safest and most effective way to secure your static and dynamic loads.

Rail car securing

Cordlash woven lashing systems are a strong, safe alternative for steel chains to secure cargo on open top rail cars. Cordstrap works in close cooperation with the Association for American Rail Roads to develop specific solutions to safely transport steel product on the American rail roads.

Cordlash is shock absorbent and absorbs impact during transport on rail roads, including shunting.
