Strapping and ties


Typical of many types of transit or storage packaging, particular when it’s industrial in nature is the need to have the right kind of sealing or securing of products. Other than the obvious choice of using some form of adhesive sealing tape there are other, often more suitable ways of guaranteeing peace of mind that your products have adequately secured.

The use of strapping around either your own products or the packaging that’s been used to protect them is a commonly seen in industrial and warehouse settings. For Kite our variety of strapping products and related tools and accessories is an essential category for many customers.

Types of strapping we sell:

  • Polypropylene: the most popular choice of all the strapping material available. Straps and secures pallet, crates, or for bundling heavy items.
  • Polyester: one of the strongest forms of strapping in the market, for very heavy duty applications. Can be secured with hand tools or automated strapping machines.
  • Steel: first choice strapping material for the building and construction Industry and ideally suited for sharp edged or protruding products. Applied by using our range of hand tools.
  • Corded: high strength corded strapping. High breaking strain and perfect solution for heavy duty applications of all shapes and sizes.
  • Bale: bale strapping is the ideal solution when compacting bales or awkward loads. It is a strong safe material that is simply hand tied or used in a bailer or waste compactor.
  • Paper: available in white or brown, these reels are manufactured from 80g thick paper. Ideal for sealing envelopes, paper bags, business cards, banknotes or leaflets.

The process of applying the actual strapping around items is achieved by using one of our dedicated strapping tools. Whether you prefer to use separate hand tension and sealing tools or order one of our combination tools to speed up the process.
