Dedicated to producing the highest quality polyester strapping today, Southern Strapping Systems is proud to be an approved Association of American Railroads (AAR) manufacturer for cargo securement. Our AAR 78 rating positions Southern Strapping System's straps as a replacement for steel banding for open top, box car and unitizing applications.
We set the worldwide strapping standard by utilizing the highest quality materials available, proprietary weaving processes and in-house testing of each and every strap. Southern Strapping Systems' products are fabricated in the U.S.A by our team of experts who are committed to research and development. To ensure that our straps are the highest performing the industry, our highly qualified experts developed a patented manufacturing process.
As a specialized manufacturer, quality control is paramount during every step of the production process. From the selection of raw materials through production and testing, the Southern Strapping Systems expert team evaluates quality during the entire manufacturing process.
Southern Strapping will not sell any strap that doesn't meet or exceed AAR standards. All of our straps are tested for quality and strength in-house as well as with the AAR. To ensure strength, our facility in Rome, GA utilizes an Instron dynamic and fatigue tester to assess individual fiber strength. Quality is also tested for cord strapping with a Dillon Dynamometer and a Tinuis Olson machine is utilized for strapping and hardware up to 30,000 lbs.
