Cheaper alternative: PET strap!
In some industries, steel strap is still the most commonly used strap. But there is an alternative: PET strap!
The most important reasons for this are that it is a lot less expensive and a lot easier to work with, but the lower environmental impact is also an important argument to change from steel straps to PET straps.
Moreover, the hazard when the strap breaks or is cut loose is also significantly lower. Steel straps could cause major injuries when a person is hit by a flying strap.
