When trees leave the sawmill, they are transported as planks, beams and frames to the timber industry, for example furniture manufacturers or timber yard.
Before delivery, the wood is sorted by quality and into standard sizes, and then bundled. In the past, wire was used to keep the load together. Following the use of wire came the era of the steel band. Both applications have a common disadvantage: It becomes detached. As a result, the bundle is no longer held together. In addition, both wire and steel bands leave rust marks.
These days, plastic strapping is used as an ideal (and cheaper) alternative for bundling wood.
