Caristrap is a textile product, manufactured from high tenacity polyester yarn, similar to that used in tires and conveyor belts. It is just as strong as steel, without all the disadvantages…
Our polyester woven straps are used in combination with in-house manufactured buckles. Caristrap buckles provide the strongest and most reliable joint in the strapping industry.
Caristrap woven strapping needs to be tensioned using a manual or pneumatic Caristrap strapping tool. Minimal wear & tear and low initial cost are just some of the benefits of these tools.
Caristrap has a wide of accessories to meet all your strapping needs. Please contact us to learn more.
