Strapping Solutions

Composite strapping

Safe, stronger than steel strapping

As a steel and metal manufacturers you often need to bundle and secure highly irregular and heavy items such as structural steel, fencing or poles. Cordstrap is the strongest of all non-metal strapping systems. Size for size Cordstrap is even stronger than steel strapping.

  • Shock absorbent
  • Non-abrasive & rust-proof
  • Fully certified

Shock absorbent & high tension

Absorbing impacts without loss of tension

When you ship your steel product 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

Unlike steel strapping, you can apply Cordstrap directly to your coated and galvanised products.

Cordstrap is non-abrasive and the steel buckle is always protected by the strap, which means there is never any metal on metal contact with 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!

Small bundles

With steel and PET strapping it is difficult, if not impossible, to apply high tension on small bundles. However, often these bundles are heavy and a strong strapping product with an high applied pretension is required.

Cordstrap is easy to apply on small bundles. For most small (square) bundles our manual tensioners can be used to obtain the required tension. For very small round bundles, we have developed an extension for our battery operated strapping tensioner. This tool is unique in the market and makes tensioning small bundles quick and easy. It will be our pleasure to demonstrate this tool. Just contact us today!
