Stainless Steel Banding: The Tensioner Tool

Stainless steel banding is one of the safest, most convenient and cost-effective ways to hold things together, from cables and insulation to steel poles and signs. One big advantage of using stainless steel banding as metal is not pierced as with screws or rivets so no damage to materials underneath or water ingress.

This work can often take place in a confined area or awkward position and so the Bandfix collection, exclusive to BS Stainless, incudes the innovative Tensioner Banding Tool which makes the process safe, simple and quick.

The Tensioner Banding Tool is incredibly versatile, suited for use in a multitude of applications with either standard Value Band or heavier products for insulation purposes; these are often used in the oil and gas industry where metal must be held securely around tanks and pipework, often in harsh and corrosive environments. When compared to a standard banding tool, the Tensioner is windless and of a much lighter weight and smaller size, allowing it to be safely and easily stowed in an ordinary tool belt.

As well as standard stainless steel banding, the Tensioner can also be used with galvanised or carbon steel banding and general steel strapping. The professional, precision-engineered tool includes a hammer (which can be used to form clip wings against banding) and cutter and weighs just 2 kg; this quality, combined with epoxy-coated, ergo­nomi­cally-designed handles, allows for a firm grip and supreme operator comfort.

In addition we can also offer the Bantam tool also known as "pistol grip" banding tool, the Whirley bird tool and lastly for those really big heavy duty bands the giant banding tool. All tools can be supplied through BS Stainless in bulk or alter­natively individually through our online shop BS fixings.

As well as all of the required tools, including the Tensioner, we also supply stainless steel banding in a comprehensive array of widths, thicknesses and grades from stock; we can also easily fulfil bespoke orders produced in our UK factory.
