What types of load unit securing devices are there?

The type of load unit protectors used depends on the respective load unit and the goods to be transported. These types of securing are usually used to secure loaded pallets:

  • Strapping: The entire load unit (pallet) is strapped and tightened with plastic or metal straps.
  • Shrinking: The load unit is covered with a plastic tube, which contracts after heat treatment and wraps tightly around the load.
  • Stretching: The load unit is wrapped in plastic film.
