Banding Groove Lumber for Unit Load Protection

Banding groove lumber is one of those transportation packaging items that is often unnoticed when used, but definitely missed when not used.  When manufacturers or businesses ship their products, most of those unit loads are secured with some kind of banding or strapping.  Banding groove lumber is that additional piece of wood packaging that can drastically help reduce in-transit damage.

  • Banding groove lumber helps to protect the top of your shipped units from the damage sometimes caused by strapping tension.
  • Banding groove lumber helps to provide clearance for the fork tines on the bottom of the unit load.
  • Banding groove lumber immobilizes the strapping so it doesn’t slide off of your products, or other types of loads like wood dunnage.
