Polyester and Steel Strap for Lumber and Panels
Steel strap has traditionally been used for transporting lumber, but in recent years, polyester has begun taking its place. This is because the high performance polyester strap is nearly as strong as steel while maintaining a certain amount of elasticity to allow for elongation. The ability to stretch slightly and retain its tension afterward makes it ideal for transporting heavy loads that might shift or bounce in transit since breakage from the strain is far less likely. It is both safer than steel and more reliable.
Polyester strap is also applicable by machine, making it a potentially more efficient strap medium than steel, which is typically applied by hand. It also costs less, making it even more cost effective when it comes to lumber and panel applications.
PAC brand steel and polyester strap are both high performance options for those in the lumber and panel industry, and we’ll help you select the best type of strap for your volume and production requirements.
