A range of ergonomically designed combination tools for polypropylene strapping.
These tools allow you to save time when tensioning and sealing polypropylene strapping by combining both actions in a simple, easy-to-use tool. They are designed for use where strapping is required on a horizontal, flat surface making it the most common tool for strapping pallets or cartons.
As well as our range of hand combination strapping tools we also supply separate sealing and tension tools. Typically these are popular where strapping is being applied to products or pallets less frequently and the cost of a combination tool isn’t justified. The tensioning tool works on a flat surface (vertical or horizontal) with the ends of the strapping being fed into the tool and the tension being applied using the handle. Once the required degree of tension has been applied the metal seal can be crimped around the strap using our hand sealing tool.
Most users of polypropylene strapping will benefit from improved efficiency. As well as specialising in the supply of the consumable strapping and all the requisite tools, Kite also carries in stock a range of accessories. These include our dispenser stand and strapping trolley. Both of these accessories provide a quick and easy way to move strapping coils around your working environment. It’s often far easier to take the strapping to your product than the other way round.
The handheld friction weld tool is the strapping tool of choice for high volume strapping requirements.

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 securely 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 it's 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 go 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.
