Banding groove is used by a lot of manufacturers to protect the top of each unit. Most unit loads are secured with some kind of strapping or banding, but unfortunately that same strapping can also damage the units. That’s where banding groove comes in. Not only does it protect individual units from the tension of the banding by providing a barrier between the banding and the unit, but it can also help provide clearance for fork tines on the bottom of those units.
Banding groove also keeps the strapping from moving around.
