Stainless Steel Banding – Essential Q&A
What is stainless steel banding used for?
Stainless steel banding is incredibly versatile and has found many uses beyond its original scope.
The primary use remains sign fixing, though other items such as litter bins can also be securely affixed to posts and poles of any size and shape utilising the method. The method can also be used to bundle items, such as pallets, tightly together.
Who uses stainless steel banding?
Due to its aforementioned versatility, the product finds a niche across a broad range of industries from transportation and communication to mining, automotive and oil & gas applications.
Sign banding literally surrounds us: next time you see a sign or other street furniture attached to a post, it is almost certain to be stainless steel strapping holding it there!
How do I select the right grade of metal?
It is essential to make the right choice here to ensure the quality and security of the fixing.
To find out the correct grade you require, you must take into consideration all of the factors that will influence the decision, such as location, climate and security needs. If you are still unsure, you should contact our skilled technical team.
