Composite strapping is a cheaper option compared to steel strapping. In practice, a simple and inexpensive mechanical tensioner can be used. This does not damage the applied surface/packaging. Composite strapping straps are rustproof and resistant to harsh weather conditions. Composite strapping is 1/5 lighter than steel strapping. Cutting the composite strapping is safe and does not pose a safety risk to the worker. Composite strapping is available in a variety of color and print options.
