Steel strapping product in the lower width sizes are generally used for light industrial applications. In certain cases stainless steel strap is required to avoid rust contamination. The typical applications include securing telephone poles, water pipes, ducting, and general engineering applications for harnessing. Application tools include hand tensioners and buckles/ seals.
Signode hand tensioners allow operators to bring strap to desired tension with minimal interruption, effort and strap waste. Most tensioners have a base which goes under the strapping and rests on the flat surface of the object being strapped. For smaller or irregular bundles, a push-type tensioner, which has no base under the strap, is recommended
