We make strapping for every need

Whether you need heavy-duty pallet strapping or something more lightweight and economical, we have you covered. Our extensive range includes standard polypropylene and polyester strapping, plus specialist tapes to meet your needs. Choose from a large selection of standard and custom sizes, and from a wide variety of colours. 

strapping (PP)

Made from extruded polypropylene homopolymer, Polypropylene strapping (PP) is lightweight and economical, making it the perfect choice for bundling, stabilising and preventing breakage in transit and security, while minimising additional package weight. 

Made from extruded thermoplastic polyester, Polyester’s high tensile strength and low creep for rigid loads makes it an ideal hazard-free alternative to steel strapping. It also has high elasticity properties, meaning it moves with the package. 


Fifty years of manufacturing experience means we have the necessary know-how to develop bespoke, specialist tapes for a diverse range of industries and applications.
