Strapping & Ties > Strapping Reels & Equipment


Strapping is used throughout the packaging industry for a variety of reasons including bundling items together for easier handling, attaching items to pallets and crates, reinforcing cartons and boxes or fastening goods together. Plastic strapping is a flexible flat material which is wrapped around the goods, tensioned and sealed.

Kite Packaging offer a complete range of strapping tools, kits and machinery to meet your strapping needs no matter how large or small your operation.

Strapping kits

If you are new to strapping, consider purchasing one of our strapping kits. Each strapping kit contains all the strapping tools to get you going including the strapping, tensioner tool and sealer tool, seals, and with some options a mobile strapping trolley.

Polypropylene strapping

For light to medium duty bundling and palletising, we supply polypropylene strapping wound onto either a cardboard or plastic core. An economical plastic strapping solution, our polypropylene strapping is embossed to ensure superior split resistance and strong seal joints.

Polyester strapping

For heavy duty loads, we recommend polyester strapping as the viable alternative to steel strapping. Used in the brick, lumber and textile industries, polyester strapping will withstand and retain higher tension than any other form of plastic strapping.

Steel strapping

High quality steel strapping for occasions when sharp edged or very heavy loads are being strapped. Typically this would be the preferred strapping material for the construction and building industry due to the very high breaking strain our steel strapping provides.

Strapping tools

Whether you use polypropylene strapping or polyester strapping, we can supply all the strapping tools you require to continue strapping efficiently. Our ergonomically designed combination tools save time when tensioning and sealing polypropylene strapping on a flat surface. Simple and easy to use, these plastic strapping tools are available to suit a range of uses from light to heavy duty. For even faster strapping, consider investing in a cordless friction welding tool, capable of tensioning, sealing and cutting both polypropylene or polyester strapping with a single handed operation.

If you require a higher volume output and more automated strapping solution, you may wish to consider one of our floor standing automatic strapping machines.
