Our protective packaging systems for the Lumber and Panel Industries are centered around the material that ultimately secures loads for handling, shipping and storage — plastic or steel strapping. While steel strapping has been utilized for load securement for nearly a hundred years, many recent technological advancements have paved the way for high-strength polyester strapping materials. Polyester strapping has proven to provide several clear advantages over steel strapping in many forest products applications. Before converting steel strapping operations to plastic, however, it's important to have a Signode Forest Products Industry Specialist evaluate your application needs. Regardless of the strapping material you choose, we offer a full range of application tools, equipment and accessories to complete your strapping system.
