Lumber Buddy™ - More Than 2 Decades Serving the Lumber Industry
Non-metallic banding will not damage the product being secured like steel banding will because it doesn't rust or cause rust stains on material and is more weather resistant than steel banding. It won't ruin painted finishes or cut into product. The reduced need for protective corners reduces the cost further.
Woven and Composite strapping both have break strengths similar to steel banding, but will not cut employees or customers like steel banding can.
Non-metallic banding has a coil weight approximately 25% of the weight of steel banding – lighter weight coils prevent injury from lifting 100 pound coils of steel.
Non-metallic banding requires one tool (tensioner) to tension and cut the strap. In many cases, steel banding systems require two tools to secure a joint.
Cleanup is also easier as there is no need for a special container or protective gear to cleanup non-metallic banding.
Think you can't dump lumber quickly AND safely? The right strapping can help you.
The woven strapping we recommend is available in a variety of sizes with multiple break strengths. Whatever the job: the right strapping and system is necessary for a safe, efficient process.
Our composite strapping is water-resistant, lightweight, non-abrasive, and printable. This Non-Metallic banding is easy to feed and comes in a variety of break strengths to fit whatever any job.
