Usually, powder coatings and galvanizers often insert items to protect the product from rust or scratches when using steel straps. The items used for this protection range from cardboard or plastic corner protectors to rubber gaskets. But composite straps are a soft, elastic material, not as hard as steel. The belt won’t cut under heavy load, and won’t recoil when cut, it’s a safe option if your staff removes or install the belt.
Composite straps come in a variety of sizes and have a bearing capacity of up to 2400kg. This is one of the top belts on the market whose breaking point is comparable to that of steel straps. So why waste time and money on additional protective consumables when you can get a seat belt product that won’t damage or distort the product and is even as durable as steel?
