INSULATION METAL STRAPPING AND ACCESSORIES



ALUMINUM BANDING

Aluminum banding (aka. aluminum strapping) is produced from high quality aluminum alloy conforming to ASTM B-209.  Aluminium banding is used for securing insulation metal jacketing in both interior and exterior applications.  Our aluminum strapping is .020" in thickness to allow for maximum tensioning with use of a push bar tensioner.  Aluminum banding is available in 1/2" and 3/4" widths.

THICKNESS: .020"

WIDTH: 1/2" or 3/4"

ROLL LENGTH: 900 linear feet


 


STAINLESS STEEL BANDING

Stainless Steel Banding (aka stainless steel strapping) is produced from T-304 stainless steel in a special soft annealed temper to increase tension strength.  Stainless Steel strapping is available in 1/2″ and 3/4″ widths and in .015″ and .020″ thicknesses.  Stainless steel strapping offers the greatest strength and corrosion resistance.   **T-316 Stainless Steel available upon request.

THICKNESS: .015" or .020"

WIDTH: 1/2" or 3/4"

ROLL LENGTH: 900 linear feet



WING SEALS

ALUMINUM WING SEALS
Aluminum Wing Seals are manufactured from aluminum in .032" thickness to allow for maximum strength during tensioning.  The wing seal is placed onto one end of a cut piece of strapping and is then used as the closure device for the strap.  Aluminum Wing Seals are available in 1/2", and 3/4" widths.

STAINLESS STEEL WING SEALS
Stainless Steel Wing Seals are manufactured from heavy duty T-304 annealed stainless steel. These seals are .032" in thickness to allow for maximum tensioning and binding power. They are available in 1/2", and 3/4" widths. **T-316 available upon request.

*Both Aluminum and Stainless Steel Wings Seals are sold in boxes of 1,000 pieces.



INSULATION FAB-STRAPS

Insulation Fab-Straps are premade aluminum or stainless steel bands with wing seals already attached.  Fab-Straps save insulation contractors time and money because they are made and ready to go.  Too many field insulators waste valuable time hand fabricating insulation straps when they can purchase Fab-Straps.

BENEFITS OF INSULATION FAB-STRAPS:

  • Saves Labor Time: Insulators no longer have to waste field time fabricating straps with seals.
  • Saves Labor Cost: Premade Fab-Straps are nearly 40% less expensive than field made straps.
  • Safety: Fab-Straps reduce the number of minor injuries due to field fabricating straps.
  • Precision: Fab-Straps are manufactured with precision which eliminates seal failure when applying tension.


PUSH BAR TENSIONING TOOLS

Push Bar Tensioners apply regulated tension to strapping to create a tight and permanent closure of insulation aluminum and stainless steel jacketing.  Push Bar Tensioners are great for tightening fab-straps on larger diameter piping, vessels, and tanks which cannot be hand tightened to the proper tension point.  Push Bar Tensioners are pistol gripped which allows easy tensioning without hurting your hands like other tensioner models which require two hands to use. 

Push Bar Tensioners can be used on aluminum and stainless steel banding although care must be taken when tensioning aluminum straps to prevent snapping.  Tensioners can be used for straps 3/8" wide up to 3/4" wide and thicknesses between .015" to .023".

Metro Supply also distributes replacement parts for most push bar tensioners use for insulation.
