Fromm’s range of manual plastic strapping tools includes combination strapping tools for plastic strap which allow the operator to tension, seal and cut in a simple operation. These strapping tools usually operate with a specialised metallic strapping seal that has an indented internal pattern to enhance the grip under tension. Available only in 12, 16 and 19mm strap widths as heavier straps require a tension force higher than a manual tool operator could safely apply.

Separate tensioners and sealers are also available. Typically used in warehouse, logistics and small timber yard applications the tension is used to apply the holding force to bring the strap around the product. The seal is then manually placed over the two pieces of strap and then joined by applying the sealer to the strapping seal and forcing it to close.
