Safety factors strapping products are essential. How do you know that the strapping you use for your products is the correct method and strong enough?
What are the main problems?
Secondly, the seal of the strap plays a big part in the strength of the strap. This situation is called joint efficiency. Therefore, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
For example, a 100kg break strain strap joined with a buckle can slip and become loose. Hence, the strap is weaker at the buckle. Therefore when a fastener is used, it counts as 20% of the break strain of the strap. This situation means that using a 100kg break pressure with a buckle is only 20kg break stress at the joint in the end.
Thirdly, there are different methods of joining the strap, such as seals, heat or friction sealing, and many others. Thus from low joint efficacy to high joint efficiency. The lower the joint effectiveness, the more straps might be needed to ensure that the product is secure that is being strapped.
Safety Factors Strapping Products
Firstly, the strength and the number of straps needed can be determined by analysing the product packaged. It’s always important to take into consideration the sealing method and use this as the real break strain of the strap. The lower the break stress, the more straps will be needed, increasing the cost per product.
Secondly, changing the way you seal the strap may decrease the cost per strapped product. This situation will increase the strength of the strap. Also, this will reduce the number of straps needed to secure your product.
Finally, our palletization experts can run safety factors strapping products analysis. We would then be able to advise the different options on the strapping being used. From polypropylene and polyester as well as the various joints such as buckle, seals, heat and friction.
