Sometimes you just need more strength. Whether it is with your morning coffee or your strapping, there are just those occasions when regular strength just won’t do. It is for this reason that we are launching a brand new line of heavy-duty polyester strapping. Our new PET strapping is 1” wide and .050” thick and it does not take any prisoners. If you have been using 1 ¼” steel strapping for your most demanding applications, you may be able to replace it with our stronger and longer-lasting heavy-duty polyester strapping.
So how do you know when you need heavy-duty strapping? At PAC, we have noticed that a number of different industries have been switching to our stronger strapping, including those who work with timber, steel plate, aluminum ingots, and in steel service centers. Working with these materials isn’t for the faint of heart; in fact the fatality rate in logging is 21 times higher than the national average. Therefore, while heavy-duty strapping isn’t the only factor in keeping timber workers safe, it does play a major role.
While we are on the subject, it is important to remember that no matter what you are using strapping for, it is critical that you choose the right strapping to get the job done safely. That is why you should rely on PAC to help you pick your strapping no matter what you handle. We always put the safety of our customers first.
