Steel banding in Wigan is also known as steel strapping. It is used for heavier packages. A load of bricks for example, or concrete blocks will be strapped in batches and then strapped to the truck. Steel strapping is normally used for bulky loads as opposed to plastic strapping which can stretch. Plastic strapping can also tear whereas steel strapping is far stronger. Crates can be strengthened by using steel straps around them. Delicate objects can be protected with soft packaging and then steel straps to ensure they do not get broken.
