Protective packaging systems for hot mill, cold mill, steel service center, bar mill and nonferrous mill applications

Our protective packaging systems for the Metals Industry are centered around the material that ultimately secures loads during handling, shipping and storage — steel or plastic strapping. While steel strapping has been utilized for load securement for nearly a hundred years, many recent technological advancements have paved the way for high-strength polyester strapping materials. Polyester strapping has proven, in some metals applications, to provide several clear advantages over steel strapping. Before converting steel strapping operations to plastic, however, it's important to have a Signode Metals Industry Specialist evaluate your application needs. Regardless of the strapping material you choose, we offer a full range of application tools, equipment and accessories to complete your strapping system.
