Strapping (often referred to as bundling or banding) is most commonly used within the packaging, fulfilment, logistics, and distribution, building and construction industries. Being such a versatile form of securing products, particularly for handling and transportation – strapping products are a common sight in many warehouse environments. Strapping packages and items for dispatch or storage is important to ensure that they are secure and stacked stably, especially if they are large, bulky or heavy and are being shipped by road, sea or air.
Why purchase all of the items required for your business’s strapping processes separately when you can get everything you need in one single package? We offer four different cost-effective and ready-to-go polypropylene strapping kits for your convenience. We supply both standard and heavy duty strapping kit options, including a range of hand operated tools for tensioning and sealing as well as dispenser and trolley units to provide added efficiency for the operator.
Depending on the kit selected, you will find several items from the following list inside: a tensioner, sealer tool, combination tool, a large reel of strapping, a dispenser stand, seals and/or a mobile strapping trolley.
If for any reason you do wish to buy any strapping component separately (or you’re looking to purchase a strapping machine or friction welder), please refer to our related product box on the main product page. If you are not sure which kit is most suitable to your operation’s requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us – we’re always happy to answer customer queries.
We sell 4 different multi-part strapping kits.
Our trolley strapping kit includes 2 packs of seals and a roll of strapping on a handy trolley, as well as tensioning and sealing tools.
Our dispenser strapping kit consists of 2 packs of seals, a roll of strapping on a reel, a tensioner tool and sealing tool.
To strap a pallet box, feed one end of the strapping through the back of the tensioning tool as shown and wrap the rest around the box so it overlaps on top.
Feed the other end of the strapping through the slot on the tensioner.
Push down on the lever repeatedly to pull the strapping tight.
Apply a metal seal and use the sealer to fix it in place.
Push down hard on the tensioner lever to cut off the excess strapping, and pull away.

Everything you need to know about our strapping range
Which strapping is best for you?
With a wide range of strapping on the market, we have some tips and advice on selecting the right strapping for you. So without further ado let’s take a look at what strapping itself is and the choices you have readily available.
Strapping is used throughout a range of industries to bundle items together for easier handling, securing items to pallets and crates, reinforcing boxes and fastening goods. It’s ideal for securing items during shipment or for medium to long-term storage and is often used in construction, agriculture and shipping industries as well as other uses throughout the packaging and manufacturing sectors. The vital part strapping plays is providing a secure fastened seal when packing goods for transit or storage.
In a world where health and safety is becoming ever more apparent and the everyday battle with damaged goods continues, we know how important it is to have the right equipment available for businesses to choose from. Whether strapping is a new venture for your business or its simply second nature to you, it is not always clear what kind of strapping you need so let’s explore what types are actually out there. At Kite we offer four different types of strapping…
Another type of plastic strapping is polyester, an effective, popular alternative for steel strapping. Its high break strength and high level tension goes hand in hand with its great elongation, therefore providing quality strapping for medium to heavy duty construction materials. Its elongation and high recovery characteristics mean polyester strapping can adapt after application to allow for any of its content expanding or contracting, therefore ensuring the same level of protection for loads throughout the transit stage.
Polypropylene strapping is seen as a more light to medium duty strapping which is the ideal option for palletising and bundling that requires a lighter duty seal. When compared with most other materials, polypropylene is the most economical as its lightweight material is easy to recycle at the end of use. It’s ideal for short transportation periods and for loads that are already protected from extreme environmental conditions and outside weathering. Its properties include high elongation and elongation memory, however it is likely to lose some of its tension after it is applied, making it particularly useful for bundles that can take up the slack but not accommodating for heavy duty solid goods that require a consistent tension.
Corded Polyester Strapping
Corded polyester strapping which is also commonly known as non-woven polyester cord strapping is stronger than both standard polypropylene and polyester strapping. This makes it ideal for heavy duty applications where strength is non-negotiable. Its high breaking strain offers a perfect alternative for steel strapping but with one further benefit, it is substantially lighter than it, allowing for ease and flexibility of use. Its elastic memory keeps loads tight and absorbs any shocks that occur in transit.
