Pallet ties solve one of the most common aspects of warehouse and storage management: pallet stabilization. These versatile ties serve as alternatives to previous less economical technology, while maintaining their reusability. Strapping a pallet is now easier than ever with Sanstrap® Stretch Bands.
Maintaining proper storage and organization on a warehouse’s scale requires the use of simple but ingenious innovations. Strapping a pallet for transportation to other facilities or merely moving said pallet from one shelf to another both require bundling the pallet’s load together, ensuring safety for both the product and your people.
The use of these reusable pallet straps is that they make sure that the topmost layer of the products on the pallet stay put, even during handling and transport. This function is based on the idea that stabilizing the top layer of a stack will keep the rest of the products beneath it from shifting during pallet movement. Since it is the top layer which always gets knocked off first, keeping this layer in place will prevent any accidents when moving the entirety of the pallet.
Reusable Pallet Straps to Replace Single-Use Materials
In the past, single-use technology was more rampant and were basically the only ways to stabilize pallets for transportation. Back then, using stretch wraps, adhesive tapes, rubber bands and even pack twines were the only way to meet this demand. Nowadays, however, reusable pallet strapping with Sanstrap® Stretch Bands are here to make your life easier.
There are many advantages to these pallet ties. For one, they are the more economical alternative. They are less expensive in the long run than their older counterparts. They are also reusable pallet straps which can be utilized multiple times before they need to be replaced—a significant improvement from one-use pallet ties of the past. This is both a smarter move for your wallet, as well as for the environment.
Speaking of the environment, Sanstrap® Stretch Bands have this advantage over previous tech, too: they are 100% recyclable. Not only does it save you money to use these bands instead of plastic wraps, it also protects the environment. The fact that they are reusable also lessens your plastic waste, pushing you further towards a greener, cleaner and more sustainable company.
Perhaps one thing often overlooked in a buzzing warehouse is floor space. Because pallets can hold weights of products in the hundreds of kilograms (or pounds), machines are necessary if you want to wrap them up with plastic stretch wraps. This is one aspect solved once again by the ever-reliable Sanstrap® Stretch Band. These bands require no machinery. They also are so easy to use, making your employees’ lives easier.
Since pallet ties are designed to stabilize the top layer, they easily wrap around the pallet. Within seconds, you will have stabilized a pallet using reusable pallet strapping instead of having to wrap the entire pallet in plastic. If you desire more stability or if your pallet stack is irregular in shape, then you can always choose to use one pallet strap around the lower layers and then add another strap around the top layer. And even if you choose to do this, it will still be the smarter move than using plastic wraps for the entire pallet.
The great thing about these bands for strapping a pallet is you will not need to sacrifice the products’ safety, even while keeping
within a cool budget. Corner protectors can easily be slid in place when using Sanstrap® Stretch Bands. They give additional protection for your stacks of products for pallet movement.
With all the advantages that Sanstrap® Stretch Bands offer, many industries are making the switch to the more economical choice.
