Choosing the proper strap to secure lumber loads for transportation is an important consideration to ensure the safety of the load and compliance with regulations.
The material used in BOSS strapping is why its the safest option when transporting lumber. The elongation is the right mix to allow lumber to move without over-stretching the strap during transport.
It is important to select the appropriate strapping and to properly secure the load to ensure the safety of workers and the integrity of the lumber. Shop our selection or talk to a team member to find the right solution for you.
Returning unsold lumber to inventory can be challenging for contractors due to a variety of factors such as storage limitations, time constraints, transportation costs, restocking fees, and quality issues.
Transporting trusses can be challenging due to their size, weight, fragility, customization, weather conditions, load securing requirements, and compliance with regulations.
We simplify that.
Protect your bottom line by bundling supplies during storage and transportation to minimize damage or loss.
For years, steel was the only option for securing and transporting forest products. Proper planning, and equipment can minimize these challenges ensure the safe and efficient transportation of forest products without the danger of steel banding.
Quality control is critical when transporting and placing wall and floor panels. The right strapping system reduces damage during bundling, transport, and placement.
Composite strapping is a better option for securing composite decking than traditional steel strapping, as it is non-abrasive, non-corrosive, has a high tensile strength, is highly resilient, lightweight, weather-resistant, and won't damage the decking during transport.
Woven strapping from BOSS is ideal for bundling EWP, as it has enough stretch to accomodate the shifting that occurs during transport but will maintain enough tension to safely transport the entire bundle without damaging the product.
Woven or composite strapping is a more cost-effective option for galvanizers than steel banding, as it is lighter in weight (which can reduce shipping cost), made from less expensive materials, safer to handle (lowers workers compensation costs), less likely to damage products, easier to apply (lower labor costs), and is not subject to corrosion.
Woven strapping is a more cost-effective method of securing palletized products for transportation compared to steel banding, as it offers lower material cost, is lightweight, safer to handle, easier to apply, and doesn't damage products.
Efficiently secure parts, or materials with banding that work as hard as you do. Woven or composite strapping is generally easier to apply than steel banding, which requires special tools and training to use properly. This can result in lower labor costs and faster application times, which can increase efficiency and productivity.
One common type of strap used for securing transmission towers is a heavy-duty polyester strap. These straps are strong and durable, with a high tensile strength and resistance to abrasion, UV light, and weathering. They may be used in combination with chains or other fasteners to ensure the tower is properly secured to the trailer.
Woven strapping is ideal for transporting dealer parts for several reasons. Its high breaking strength means it can withstand heavy loads without breaking or stretching over long distances. It is highly resistant to shock and impact, which makes it an ideal choice for securing parts that may be subject to rough handling or vibration during transport. Woven strapping is flexible and can conform to irregularly shaped parts, which makes it easier to secure them properly.
When your strap is manufactured and tested to the highest industry standards- AAR ratings are the next step in ensuring goods arrive at their destination in tact and without damage.
Food service equipment such as glassware, china, and silverware can be fragile and easily damaged during transport. Some food service equipment can be large or irregularly shaped, making it difficult to pack and transport efficiently. Both woven and composite strapping can accommodate these issues.
Plastic piping can be flexible, which can make it difficult to keep in a fixed position during transport. This can be particularly challenging if the piping is long or irregularly shaped. Some types of plastic piping can be fragile and prone to damage during transport, particularly if they are exposed to shocks, vibration, or other types of impact. Woven or composite strapping solves for all of these issues.
Composite strapping is ideal for transporting equipment for several reasons. It is highly resistant to shock and impact, which makes it an ideal choice for securing equipment that may be subject to rough handling or vibration during transport over undeveloped terrain. It is flexible and can conform to irregularly shaped equipment, which makes it easier to secure them properly.
Composite and woven strapping is an effective option for securing items in marine and offshore applications because its strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion make it ideal for use in harsh marine environments where other materials may not hold up as well. Composite strapping is resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for use in marine environments where saltwater can cause metal strapping to rust and corrode. It can be used to secure ropes, cables, and other rigging to prevent them from coming loose during use.
While no strapping method is foolproof when it comes to securing glass during transport, woven strapping combined with padding and cushioning is the recommended method. It is non-abrasive and non-corrosive, which can protect the surface of the glass. It also has a high tensile strength and is resilient, making it suitable for securing fragile glass items.
