Suretex strapping: the safe alternative


Suretex woven polyester strapping from Southpack Distributors is a safe alternative to use for any packaging job.

With Suretex there is no chance of lacerations from sharp edges, or damaged eyesight from spring-back of steel strapping, when being cut to remove from pack.

The strapping itself is a soft woven bed of polyester strands. The metal buckles used to loop strapping are rounded and are finished with galvanized or phosphate coating.

A total roll weighs only 7-9kg, compared to steel strapping, which can weigh up to 46kg for the same metres with same break strength.

The product is a Sure alternative to other strapping, for use in medium to heavy applications such as securing bundles of pipe, palletising of engineered parts or packaging of heavy loads.

Suretex is applied easily – requiring only the applying of the strap, feeding through buckle and tensioning with one hand held tensioner. No pneumatic or expensive combination tools can apply strapping much faster.

Suretex is easily applied to even the smallest package, and as easily to bulky packages or loads.
