Tips for using hand held stretchwrap

1 min

Best practice for applying hand held stretch wrap to effectively secure your pallet loads.

Always place the outside of the film to the surface of the pallet.

Secure the stretch film to the pallet before wrapping by tying it to the pallet base.

Always ensure the film covers the base of the pallet and bottom layer of the load.

Wrap the bottom of the pallet at least twice to secure the load.

Overlap the film by 30 to 50%

Depending on the weight of your load consider wrapping the pallet twice.

To increase strength use the film horizontally to create a 'strap'.
