Pallet Ties Stretch Bands
Pallet ties are the new, more economical and environmentally friendly way of pallet stabilization. These pallet stretch bands are made of polyethylene film—a recyclable material that gives the bands immense elasticity without sacrificing stability. These pallet strips are the better alternative to more conventionally used stretch wraps and films and seeing as these materials are reusable, they are also the more budget-friendly option for any business.
Pallet Stretchers vs. Stretch Wraps
In the past, stretch wraps were the go-to when transporting pallets of goods both intra-warehouse or during transportation. They however, had a lot of setbacks, particularly when it came to their single-use nature.
There are plenty of pros to using pallet ties versus stretch wraps. For one, these pallet stretchers are reusable and can be utilized a number of times before they need to be retired. And even when these pallet stretch bands are no longer usable, they are still recyclable. What’s even more surprising is that these pallet ties are actually cheaper than stretch wraps, giving you all the more reason to choose them over the latter. This means that unlike their stretch wrap counterparts, pallet ties are becoming even more widely acclaimed now more than ever. With an increasing number of individuals and companies embracing the practice of sustainability, having reusable, and cheaper, alternatives to single-use materials is always an advantage.
What is also a great benefit to using pallet strips is that they still have the capacity of protecting your pallet loads without sacrificing stability. With the use of corner protectors, pallet tape alternatives slide over the pallet and keep things tight and snug. When applied in intra-warehouse storage management, this combo of pallet strips and corner protectors not only safeguard your products, it also prevents any accidents and untoward incidents from happening to your people and employees.
Advantages of Using Pallet ties
What’s more enticing about pallet ties is their ease of use. For anyone who has ever had to work in a warehouse or storage facility, having to utilize a machine to wrap a single pallet with stretch wrap, can become quite the drudgery. Pallet strips require no machinery to stabilize the pallet. This translates to less cost for you as the employer, because pallet-wrapping machines can be costly. The fact that you won’t need to have them around anymore will also save you on much-needed floor space, helping keep things tidy around your place of business.
They are also incredibly easy to use because they just wrap around the top layer of the pallet load. But for heavier or irregularly-shaped loads, multiple bands can be used to stabilize the pallet—still way better than having to wrap the entire thing with plastic wrap.
With their tested and proven ease of use, pallet ties are also therefore faster to utilize. Less prep time, and the fact that you won’t need to use a machine, simply means that you will have more time doing other things around the premises, instead of lugging around big, hulking, pallets wrapped in plastic.
And, perhaps one of the lesser-known benefits that the humble pallet tie has is that it allows perishable products to “breathe,” keeping your products both safe and fresh during transport.
With all the advantages that pallet strips have over stretch wraps, it is no wonder that more and more companies are making the transition to the more sustainable and easier-to-use pallet tie.
