Polypropylene strapping tools & equipment

Combination tools

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.

  • 12mm entry level combination tools: The most competitively priced of our combination tools. Suitable for 12mm strapping with a maximum thickness of 1mm where the application is light to medium use.
  • 12mm standard combination tools: A general purpose hand tool for use with 12mm strapping, and ideal for light / medium applications. This tool can be used with strapping that has a maximum thickness of 1.2mm.
  • 12mm heavy duty combination tools: Ideal for heavy duty and continuous use, suitable for strapping with a maximum thickness of 0.9mm

Tensioning and sealing tools

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.

Strapping accessories

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.

Friction weld tool

The handheld friction weld tool is the strapping tool of choice for high volume strapping requirements. Used to wrap and seal polypropylene (PP) or polyester (PET) strapping around a product, pallet or container. Strapping applied using one of these tools gives increased security and protection. These units are cordless and lightweight so benefit from being fully mobile. They are powered by a rechargeable battery. They are simple to use and the programmable controls allow the required amount of strapping and tensioning time to be set up by the operator.

Please note: Our cordless friction weld tools are only available on a standard 2-4 day delivery.

Hurricane friction weld tool

The lightest model in our range, with the tool weighing just 2.9kg, the hurricane friction weld tool is suitable for strapping medium to heavy loads, ideal for PP or PET strapping.

The hurricane tool comes with a 2 year return to base warranty that does not cover electronic parts and attached consumable parts.
