Moving heavy loads is not an easy thing, you have to pack this type of package well, so that they are well protected. A packaging that is not resistant may not hold and therefore damage the contents. Make sure your packing materials are designed for transporting heavy objects. Boxes must be new and solidly constructed with seams that are sewn or stapled. Get items that have not suffered moisture or wear and tear from previous use. To seal the box after filling it, use strong tape.

To improve the strength of your packaging, use steel strapping, which is capable of holding very heavy loads. Thanks to its extreme robustness, it can withstand the high tensions required to effectively strap large products. It is ideal for loads that present risks related to their roughness. Indeed, it is able to resist abrasion and tearing.

For long-term storage in difficult humidity conditions, steel strapping for strapping offers a qualitative solution. The elongation of the steel strapping remains very stable over time, which guarantees the safety of the storage of the products. This is possible even in height because the foliage retains the same tension. Its waxed finish improves the application thanks to the glide on the product concerned by the strapping.
