Steel Strapping

Steel Strapping

The Oscillated steel strapping is wound in a tight uniform pattern to a coil width between 2 1/2″ to 2 3/5″

Ribbon Wound. The steel strapping is wound onto itself so that the width of the coil is the same as the strap.

Jumbo Coils Steel strapping can be wound into coils that weigh greater than 330lbs.

Jumbo Coils are available for all steel strapping types in sizes from 3/4″(19mm) to 1-1/4″(32mm), and coil weight from 330 to 1,000lbs. (150kgs to 453.5kgs).


All steel strapping finishes are treated with a wax coating. This lubrication allows the steel strapping to flow smoothly in automated machines, tools and around corners of products.

Painted and Waxed Steel Strapping – Strapping typically available in green, black, brown and other colours are available

Blued & Waxed Steel Strapping – The surface finish is blued by a flame process rather than painted. Bluing the steel burns off foreign material from steel. Blued strap is an economical alternative that offers similar characteristics as painted strap with less cost.

Zinc coated & Waxed Steel Strapping – Commonly used for prolonged outside storage, this finish offers greater rust resistance than regular painted material. Product is typically used for items that will be outdoors for long perids of time.

Oscillated wound steel strapping coils are shrouded. Skids are normally shroud wrapped with cardboard for protection in transit. Ribbon wound steel strapping is normally packaged bare coiled onto the skid
