With industry looking to reduce workplace injury on worksites, companies are looking for innovative products to help employees remain safe at work.
A product that has caused many injuries on various worksites in the past, is the 19mm Metal Strapping, which is primarily used to strap bundles of large items/products in place. It may be useful to hold a bundle together, but when tensioned and cut, that strapping unleashes its fury on those around it.
The disposal of used strapping also puts the handler at risk of injury. It’s a dangerous task, wrestling with lengths of sharp-edged strapping while you try and fold it into a small disposable bundle. This exercise itself is fought with danger.
CSS, owners of the Impact-A range of products, have been selling a safer alternative to the dreaded steel strapping for many years now. The Impact-A Poly Woven Strapping System is rapidly becoming the safe, secure, and easy to use replacement. The 20mm Strapping and Buckle combination, is rated to 1100kg breaking strain, and provides a perfect foil against cuts and scratches that are sometimes associated with the use of the metal strapping.
Poly Woven strapping when cut under load, does not have the recoil of metal strapping, it is easily disposed of, is reusable, and doesn’t have sharp edges to cut you. The material used in your seatbelt is a similar product to the Impact-A Poly Woven Strapping, and we know how strong and safe that is to use.
There are hundreds of applications, across a broad range of industry segments, where the product can be used with great confidence, when performance and safety are required (Transport, Construction, Distribution, Mining, Industrial Engineering, Agricultural and Infrastructure for example).
In some industry segments, they have banned metal strapping citing the dangers of handling and disposal for their reasoning. Poly Woven Strapping does not kink like steel strapping, which creates weak spots in the material, doesn’t rust, and is safe to use. The buckles and strapping system is rated to 1100kg breaking strain, when installed correctly, and if dismantled correctly after use, can be reused again.
Get yourself started with an Impact-A Starter Kit, which includes 62mtrs of strapping, tensioning tools and 100 buckles, all stored in a sturdy toolbox.
Larger 250mtr and 500mtr rolls, as well as buckles are also available to purchase separately.
