Metal straps have many uses, including locking shipping containers, holding items together, securing security cameras in place and coupling pipelines. Ideally, metal strapping involves using straps to fasten, secure and reinforce items for a firm fit.
Straps are available in different materials, including polyester and nylon, but metal straps are the most preferred due to their durability and effectiveness. They boast a high tensile strength and are commonly used in construction and roadway safety. They are available in different widths and grades of steel to suit different applications. Some straps contain chromium and other alloys to make them resistant to corrosion and rust.
