Strap Protectors


Superior protection for products like dimensional lumber and plywood

Nothing unintentionally cuts into an excellent-looking piece of lumber quite like a tight or overtightened strap.

The primary purpose of strap protectors is to prevent damage to cargo secured by straps or chains. They are placed between the product and the strap or chain to provide a cushioning effect, which helps to distribute the pressure of the strap or chain more evenly across the surface of the cargo. This can help prevent scratches, dents, and other types of damage during transit.

An example is lumber on a centerbeam flat car. Built-in metal straps hold the load in place, while metal bands contain each bundle of lumber.

Strap protectors are necessary when transporting fragile or high-value items, as they can help reduce the risk of damage during shipping.

Why paper strap protectors?

Corrugated paper is a popular choice for strap protectors because it is lightweight, inexpensive, and provides good cushioning and protection. It is also recyclable and biodegradable, making it a more environmentally friendly option than other materials such as plastic or metal.

Additionally, corrugated paper is customizable to fit specific cargo shapes and sizes. This allows for a more secure fit and better protection during transit. Choosing corrugated strap protectors is suitable for those looking for an effective and eco-friendly option.
