Pallet Ties for Pallets
For many years, the technology of reusable plastic straps for pallets has eluded the grasp of many distributors and manufacturers. Now however, these worries are no more. With Stretch Bands, sustainability is within reach.
When it comes to stabilizing loads for transport, reusable pallet strapping is the obvious solution. And as the world moves toward more sustainable practices in all fields, there is a need to keep up with changing trends. Not only is reusability and sustainability better practices, but they are also in general, better ideologies.
Whenever pallets need to be moved, whether it be on the road to different facilities, on the water in shipping containers or even just on the same premises, stabilizing the pallet’s contents is necessary. Keeping the products from moving protects both the merchandise as well as the people handling them.
There are a wide variety of materials that these pallet ties can be made of and indeed, over the years, there have been many types introduced to the market. Materials such as stretch wraps, rubber bands for pallets, adhesive tapes and wrapping bands have been utilized. These materials, however, are not sustainable and are meant for one-time use only. These aspects make them more damaging to the environment, and more expensive. Now however, we have a new alternative to these materials, ushering in the smarter way to stabilize your pallets.
Reusable Pallet Straps
Stretch Bands offer better alternatives to previous technology as they have many advantages over their counterparts.
For one, the material is reusable, making them the more economical option. Because they can be reused multiple times, the amount of waste generated by your facility is greatly lessened, lessening the negative impact to the environment. Once the material does become loose and can no longer be reused, they still have the upper hand because they are 100% recyclable, truly making them the more sustainable choice.
Besides their environmental impact, Stretch Bands are also far easier to use. For previous technology especially stretch wraps, machinery was necessary to wrap the entirety of the pallet in the single-use plastic. The entire process required additional hours of training for the employees to handle the machine, more floor space for both the machine and the wrapping area, and basically, more money to go into pallet stabilization. With pallet ties however, all of these things are addressed.
The reusable pallet strapping is so easy to handle that only one employee is necessary to fully stabilize the pallet. Within seconds, the Stretch Bands can be applied, lessening the time needed to secure and move the pallet. Floor space which would have gone to this one specific part of storage processing would have gone to other needs. And additional machinery would no longer need to be acquired. The additional man-hours one would have accrued over the year with just this specific aspect of pallet stabilization will also inevitably add up. Basically, switching to palletbands is just the better option for the long run.
Perhaps one other pro that these straps have that many distributors miss out on, is the fact that they not only protect what’s inside the boxes of goods on the pallet, but also the boxes themselves. In the past, the use of adhesive tapes to secure these boxes for transport meant that they would inevitably be damaged in some way. Sometimes the tape would rip out part of the branding, or worse, part of the important information found on the boxes themselves. To prevent this, the tape would have needed to be left on the boxes, meaning minus points for aesthetics.
The great thing about the stretch band is that not only are they easy and quick to apply, but they are also incredibly easy to remove while keeping the boxes intact. They are not adhesive in nature, meaning you won’t need to worry about any worsening of the state of the boxes no matter how many times the pallets would need to be moved.
Compared to previous technology, plastic straps for pallets are now the wiser option for warehouse storage solutions.
