Bandfix - Exclusive to BS Stainless

Exclusive to BS Stainless, Bandfix® is a family of products designed to facilitate all stainless steel banding needs at the most competitive price. Bandfix® has been, since December 2013, a registered trademark at the Intellectual Property Office and represents a clear, branded image for the comprehensive range.

Stainless steel banding is used in a large and diverse array of applications, from insulation for heavy industry to the installation of road signs. Bandfix® stainless steel banding offers the perfect product for all of these applications, with a range of available options to suit bespoke requirements.

The first type of banding developed by BS Stainless is for use in insulation, securely fixing the insulating material around pipes. Extensive testing and optimisation led our team to develop coils with a uniform width, perfect for this heavy-duty application. Though incredibly efficient, the coil weight of 15-20kg and length of 200-300M made the product unsuitable for more delicate operations; the BS Stainless team quickly set about creating the next generation of banding.

For banding applications such cable holding or where the use of ladders or scaffolding is required, it was necessary to create a smaller yet equally efficient method. BS Stainless created the innovative Handicarry box which, weighing just a tiny 1-2kg and containing 30M of banding, opened up a whole new range of possibilities. These lightweight, versatile and handy coils are non-magnetic and very easily formed, as well as providing the strong protection against corrosion offered by 304 stainless steel products.

A third type of Bandfix® stainless steel banding is of an alternative grade of stainless steel 201 that is excellent for tensioning, a less expensive grade that is commonly used for a variety of sign fastening applications, as well as being used to affix bins and other street furniture to posts. With strong tension and rigidity to ensure durability, Bandfix® products of this type are incredibly popular among councils and local authorities thanks to their high reliability and minimal cost. All Bandfix® products feature an innovative safe edge, designed to minimise the risk of accident and injury during use.

Development is a key factor of our policy and we are continuing to optimise Bandfix products®. The product family has grown with each new addition, including expansion springs, toggles and the innovative eco wing seal; this seal has been thoroughly redesigned in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University to reduce its weight and thickness while improving its strength by 20%. As the importance of environmental conservation continues to grow, BS Stainless are investing in products like to eco wing seal in order to ensure a sustainable future.

Many retailers sell stainless steel banding products through a distributor or merchant. BS Stainless are proud to offer our entire range of products directly, cutting out the middleman and offering substantial savings to our customers while guaranteeing quality British made products.
