Sanstrap® Pallet Bands or Stretchbands offer a Pallet stability solution that is fast to apply, fast to remove and cost effective. Using Sanstrap® involves the simple manual application of a thin polyethelene Stretch-film circular band.
Pallet stretch bands are often used for internal warehousing and storage.
The Sanstrap® represents a solution of temporary pallet stabilising where clients may want to access goods from a pallet or repack the pallet and then store that pallet with some form of stability.
In larger sites the point of final pallet wrapping can be a long distance from the pick and pack/place operations – Transport from where the pallet is packed to where it is wrapped or packed for transport can be an arduous task with frequent dropping of loose packs during the long forklift rides.
The Sanstrap® stretchbands represent a quick, cheap and machine free way to quickly stabilise loads.
