Composite Strapping

Corded or Composite strapping is the most popular method used to secure items for the oil and gas markets. You can use it to strap crucial parts for an oil rig or strap heavy valves to a pallet or skid. Cordstrap invented this strapping system in 1965 and ever since, it is the highest quality composite strapping you will find in the market.

From pipework to smaller components and parts, Cordstrap provides you with a strong and safe solution. We offer a wide variety of sizes and strengths ranging up to certified system strengths of up to 3,700kg.

High retained tension & shock absorbent

Unlike steel strapping, Cordstrap is shock absorbent. When shipping offshore or to remote drilling sites, your products are picked up and put down multiple times, not to mention their shipping environment is anything but smooth.  Cordstrap can absorb these impacts without elongating or breaking.

We work together with many of the worlds leading companies in the energy industry and have developed special applications to meet their specific requirements.

Non-abrasive & non-corrosive

Ideal for use in off shore environments

Cordstrap is non-abrasive. You can apply it directly to your  coated products. You can also apply Cordstrap on products with sharp edges. When edges are razor blade sharp, we recommend some form of edge protection. We provide plastic corner pieces, but of course a piece of card board will do the trick as well.

Another benefit of Cordstrap composite strapping over steel strapping is that it does not rust. This makes Cordstrap an ideal strap to be used in an offshore environment.
