Stainless Steel Strapping
Stainless steel strapping is ideal for installing signs on large diameter posts and poles when standard sign mounting brackets won't work.
The most common uses for stainless steel strapping are for securing wing type brackets for street name signs, as well as mounting regulatory and warning traffic signs on poles. These rolls of 3/4" x .030” x 100 ft. long stainless steel strapping come in a plastic tote that keeps the strapping organized and allows it to be portable.
Tools required for installation:
- Strapping tool with cutter such as our RTST-1 , Y3532 or Y3533
- 2 Flared or Y3531 sign mounting brackets
- Measure out enough stainless-steel strapping to go around the pole including an extra 12″ or so of slack.
- Insert one end of the strapping into your straight or flared leg sign mounting bracket.
- Insert the same end into your buckle or wing seal and bend about 2″ to 3″ of strapping underneath the wing seal or buckle.
- Wrap the strapping around the pole and slide the other end of the strapping through the buckle or wing seal and bend it back so that the strapping stays in place.
- Tighten the strapping down with the strapping tool, making sure that the tool is against the wing seal or buckle during this step.
- Once the strapping is tight, bend the strapping with the tool to hold the tension and use the cutter to cut off the excess strapping.
- Fold the excess strapping over the buckle or wing seal and hammer down the wings to secure the strapping.
- Repeat these steps to install the second band of strapping.
- At last, proceed to install the sign onto the brackets, using the hardware provided (1 hex head bolt and 1 washer each).
